In Utah!

We've been in Utah for 2 weeks now!  I feel like there is so much to say right now that it's overwhelming and yet there are so many things that I really probably should be doing instead.  So, I've decided that it's only fair to take a few minutes to give a little info on the past month to give myself a little personal fulfillment.

In my last short post I mentioned the dissertation and house.  Dissertation went well!  The house didn't actually get an offer for another week and we accepted.  Unfortunately, the contract fell through a week ago, so now we're working on that again.  But, all will be well.

There are a lot of great things to say about my life- the move was full of miracles because we made it safely and the boys did AWESOME in the car for the 4 day journey; We are back in Utah where all of my family is for the first time in 4 years; and my mom survived a fall from a poorly placed ladder trying to get to our roof (she had 7 broken bones, 8 stitches in her ankle, 9 staples in her head, and wrist surgery, but she did survive!); and we get to come back "home."  And yet, I'm still missing that home feeling.  I guess it's hard to let myself settle without knowing how long we'll be here.  But, I know I'll enjoy it and already have enjoyed it.  It's just hard leaving Tallahassee because that was our first home for our family and the only place we've ever felt was "ours."  If that makes sense.  But, it still feels right to be here and I an so excited to see what the future brings.

We're in that development phase of finding a routine and getting on schedule right now, but hopefully soon I will find a good time to put up pictures.  There's lots!!
