There are basically 3 steps to moving - all of which may seem unpleasant to a family. The first step is packing.

The third, and final step of moving is unpacking. Unpacking can be a fun task if you make it that way. Especially if you are organized prior to your move. Each box should be unloaded in it's designated "home".
