Last day in J-ville

Here is the last family photo taken in front of our home in Jacksonville. It was bitter sweet, the moving trucks had just pulled away with the last of our belongings. I had to use a suitcase as our tripod and we were exhausted and anxious.

These pictures were taken for the sole purpose of evidence on how much they will grow from now til our return in 3 years. Yes, I know there is no guarantee that we will return to this base, but just in case I took them for reference purposes! Take a good look at the height difference in the boys, not much really! But take a closer look at where their shoulders and waists are at on each other. It's incredible... I'll be buying tall pants for Caleb and tall shirts for Seth before too long!
For cryin' out loud, they are to Mark's chin... I reckon they'll be taller than him. I'd like to see them about 6'4. I think I'll need 2 frigs and a deep freezer when they become teenagers!

As we drove away, I tried not to cry. It was hard, leaving behind friends and family we have here in J-ville is never easy, even when it's the third time around. Don't worry I am sure we'll be back!
