So the house in Van Buren is sold. I can't help but wonder if her silence this month reflects her sadness at leaving all their friends, especially at church. I was a teenager - totally consumed with self - and I never thought about anything except they would be thrilled to be living near us. Also I'm sure she was already packing up.

Friday. Moved to Springdale. Stored furniture Washington Trans. Co.
Honestly do not remember where they stayed while they renovated the house in Springdale. I don't remember that they rented anything - maybe they just stayed with us or K.M.'s family when it wasn't possible to stay in the house. I was engaged on Christmas Eve just past, and was busy with all the Senior events and applying to the University - seems very selfish now!
