Are we really doing this?
well...it appears the time has come & the time is now...we are going to be bloggers! we (what am i talking about...I) have been thinking about doing this for awhile but now that we are moving it seems like the right time. i'm sure we'll post pictures on here but i think those of you who receive our shutterfly pictures can still look forward to those! :)
a quick update on life...
on september 5th we plan to move from chicago to corvallis, oregon where mike will begin grad school in engineering. we are making a trip out of the move...spending some time with friends in minnesota, taking in a national park or two, visiting my sister in idaho, introducing calla to family in portland she has yet to meet & landing in corvallis around october 1st. we have a place to live, but we have yet to secure jobs so pray for us as we figure out how we are going to make things work. we trust that things will work out, but we'd be lying if we said it wasn't scary. we are scared to leave family, scared if we won't like it, scared if we can't find jobs...yet at the same time we look forward to pushing ourselves & experiencing life outside of chicago. and we remind ourselves that we might love corvallis...we'll wait & see.
i need to figure out how to work this thing so i'm going to try adding some pictures...we'll see if it works. if the pictures work...they are some favorites from the summer. calla being sweet, greta at american girl & then a family photo from mike's muddy buddy race.
