Moving In

For posterity's sake, I'm posting a few pictures of our family moving into our new house.  The process went pretty well - aside from the moving van not showing up to unload until 7:00 PM.  The movers worked so hard, though, and had everything off the truck by 12:30.  

Nanoo, Pop, Cacoo and Fielding came to help with the unpacking.  Nanoo and I left Macon early so that we could unload the moving van full of goodies from her house and each of my grandmothers' houses in Macon.  The rest of the gang showed up later in the afternoon.  While Pop ran errands all over Columbia (he knows his way around as well as any local!), Nanoo was an unpacking MACHINE.  She helped us get the kitchen organized, and make some semblance of order out of all of the empty boxes and packing paper.

The Merritts in SC!
McIver's room took a little while to unpack and get organized, because his method was to just pull out the packing paper and let everything fall out.  Actually, it didn't take long at all to unpack, but it took forever to get organized!
Olivia, on the other hand, unpacked and organized her own room.  A place for everything and everything in its place.  And, I have to admit that, for the most part, she has kept her room in great shape!
Boxes, boxes everywhere!
Just thought this was a funny picture.
