The End of the Treanor 4

Sorry we haven't been blogging for the last week but honestly our world has been turned upside down trying to get prepared to leave. It has amazed me with all the detailed things you have to do to get ready to leave for a journey like this. With all the things to get done on my "To Do List" has come A LOT of emotion. Every day there has been MANY tears shed. Eric and I are overwhelmed with what God is doing in our lives, with the MANY blessings that God has given our family, with the treasures that he has entrusted to us as parents of his beautiful creations. WOW do we have an AWESOME God!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's kind of a low down of the past week:

1) Wake here, run there, buy this, pack, run, run, run, run ALL DAY!!!!!

2) Wake up and repeat step 1

3) Wake and repeat steps 2 and 1

4) Wake up and repeat steps 3,2, and 1

OK now I think you get the picture.

The only thing to add to this list is why the title, "The End of the Treanor 4" Well one night earlier this week Eric and I were settling down and we could hear Cecilia and Konrad playing and giggling in Konrad's room. Eric was going to go in there and tell them that they needed to settle down and go to sleep when I stopped him to say, "Let them be. They only have these last days together as just the two of them." Then it really hit the both of us...WOW their life as they know it is going to change FOREVER in just a few days. This was one of my teary moments. To continue on through our week to last night when reality really hit us is when Eric voiced, as all 4 of us were bedding down for a slumber party in our room, "this night is our last night as the Treanor 4." Well as you can guess I had another highly emotional night. For almost a decade now we have been the Treanor 4. No just 5 days we will officially become the Treanor 5.

Well I'm off to go finish packing up Konrad's things so I can drive him to KY later today. Please pray for him. He will be staying behind as Eric, Cecilia and I go to bring our Princess home. We have never been away from him this long. He will be staying with all of his grandparents, so I know he will be well cared for, but I still worry about him getting sad.
