My parents will be moving into my brother's two bedroom apartment in Scottsdale. It should be interesting for all of them. Luckily, my brother has a very demanding job and he is hardly home. I say luckily because my dad and brother are basically clones of each other and they both tend to get on each others nerves! My parents aren't sure if they'll stay in Arizona or roam the country like we've been doing. Maybe they'll end up in Oregon, who knows. Right now they are focusing on getting to Arizona, relaxing for a little while and then figuring out exactly what they want to do next!
I talked to both my mom and my dad (shocking since I haven't spoken to him since I was in Texas which was October of last year) and they are happy and sad. They're happy about having a fresh start and doing something new but they're also sad because they've lived in that house for over 15 years. My parents have put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into that house! The house was a huge fixer upper when we moved in during my teenage years and with my parents help the house has become a beautiful home with a gorgeous front and backyard. I will miss all the fruit trees and seeing my dad's giant goldfish in their backyard pond. I will miss the swing set in the backyard that my parents bought for the girls. I will miss so many things about that house. I am thankful to have so many happy memories there (I have bad ones too, but the happy ones outweigh the bad).

I wish we were spending Easter with my parents. These last few holidays have been weird since we've always spent them with my parents. I miss them a lot and I hope they come to visit us soon!
