We're moving to Virginia!
Yes, you read that right. And yes, we know you're not supposed to do major life changes back to back. But for those of you who know us (really know us), know that's just sort of how God does things in our family. And though it's all a bit surreal at the moment, we're all surprisingly excited about it. Yea, we will miss many Utah friends (most of whom are truly part of our family), but in the end, God has opened too many doors in the past 4 weeks for us to question what's He's up too.
Kyle starts his new job on the 27th, the rest of us move out there on the 5th and yes, our house here is under contract - Praise God!!!!! It'll be interesting, I'm sure. We have no idea what's in store, but I know from many experiences that the crazier the path seems to be, the more joy we find along the way.
Jared will start HS in VA. He's excited about that part, and just wished we got moved before school started there. He's really hoping there is a good basketball team there in need of a point guard!
Corey will enter junior high out there, and thinks that sounds fun. I'm not sure jr. high is ready for him, but apparently I don't have a say in that one! Not sure where they'll start Jacob, but maybe he'll be there too. If not, he'll be a 5th grader...guess time and some testing will tell.
Kyle is excited about his new job and I get to keep mine (i love my directors!). We're also on the same page about school, home and kid stuff, so our anxiety level is fairly minimal. That says a lot, too, since as of right now he's living in an Extended Stay hotel and we don't have a home to rent yet! Yikes. He's got a week to start a job, find a lot to build a home on, get a rental in the mean time and buy a car.
Some of you may be reading this and going "Wowa...I didn't know you were moving!" Well, 4 weeks ago we didn't either and things have happened VERY fast.
My next post will be more of a "good bye" post, but right now I have 5 kids waiting to head to the pool. Their stuff is boxed, they're not starting school here and we need to keep our sanity :o)
