Saying goodbye is the hard to do!!!

This has been a hard week for the Rogers family. Justin & Raluca started packing up. OnTuesday afternoon I took Jesse and Josiah over to the house to help them pack some more. Justin had already started putting stuff in the Penske truck and Josiah thought that was pretty cool So he would open the front door for Justin and then run up the ramp (to make sure it was safe enough for Mr. Justin to go up with all the boxes). We helped them box some more things up and then I had to leave to pick up Joel and Riley who were at a friends house. So I packed up Jesse, Josiah, Jesse's friend Burton and Nathaneal (because he needed to take a nap and he wasn't going to take a nap at home with people packing things up).We picked up Joel and Riley and some dinner. Went back to our house, ate dinner, packed the kidss back into the car and drove back to the Liles house. By then, the men had closed the truck up and put the "little" truck onto the trailor. We all went back inside and thats when it HIT me...they were REALLY leaving.!!! I could not stop crying. I am going to miss Alina. She has been with me since she was about 3 months old. And its not just Alina, Raluca and I have had a lot fun these past 2 years. We ran our first 5k together. I have never done that with anybody!!! We have become good friends. I really hope we can go and visit them sometime. I have never been to Colorado.

We went back to their house on Wednesday afternoon after VBS. Their house was empty but it just needed to be cleaned. So Jesse and Josiah kept Alina busy and I helped clean bathrooms and finish vacuming. I think we got everything done around 2pm and they ate lunch and drove away at 3pm.

The Liles are such special people and we will miss them so much! This post almost had me in tears. I am so thankful for blogs and FB so they won't seem quite so far away.
