Here we are unloading the truck...alone. The day we arrived in Concord was the day our new ward scheduled a temple trip. Nice. Thankfully, after a while the missionaries came! And, oh, did we need them! We still had our heavy furniture left to unload.
For our move to NH we ordered a 16 foot Penske moving truck (the same size we had when we moved to NC). Once it was in our parking lot, I panicked. What were we thinking?! We had purchased furniture while in NC! Every fiber of my being believed our stuff would NOT fit into that Penske truck. I felt so strongly about this that I made Matt pick-up a U-Haul trailer. When my parents arrived, my dad looked at the truck and said "It can be done". I was still worried. Oh, my little faith... What happened next was a modern day miracle! My dad was able to fit EVERYTHING into that truck!
The wonderful men and children who helped.
