The move back to Kansas

My last day of work at the Matheson Courthouse in Salt Lake City was Thursday, July 23rd, and as soon as Diana picked me up from the Front Runner station in Clearfield we drove directly to Ogden to get the U-Haul. We got back to the house at around 7:00 pm and immediately started loading the truck. We loaded until about 11:30 that night and it was still pretty hot out even then. Once we stopped we were still up until about 1:00 am and then went to bed. We were back at it the next morning at around 5:00. Once we were finished loading on the 24th we left Utah in the rear view mirror. That day we drove all the way through Wyoming and into part of Nebraska, stopping in Paxton for the night. Wyoming was pretty boring until we got to Laramie and Cheyenne. That was some pretty country. Eleven hours in a U-Haul was not fun, but the weather was great! The day of the 25th was a little better. We finished driving through Nebraska and then drove through parts of Iowa, Missouri and Kansas, crossing the Missouri River twice. We were so glad to see Kansas City at around 8:00 pm because the trip was coming to an end and my butt was asleep! Diana was tired too since she drove the van the entire way with the boys playing musical chairs. Jordan missed out on the action because he had flown to Wichita a couple of days prior to the move to visit family and will join us later this month. Diana and I left behind some great people that we worked with and we miss them a lot (holla') , but it is good to be back in Kansas.
