Here we go again...

We have been pretty busy around here lately. Over Spring Break two weeks ago, we heard about a job opening in Blanding UT (Tyler's home town). We have never really considered it as an option before, but for some reason it hit a nerve. Even though Tyler loves his job here, and we have felt pretty settled, thde temptation to live closer to family was too strong to resist. Tyler applied a day after the job "closed" and we found ourselves in Blanding for an interview this week. It has all happened so fast, that I'm still reeling a little from the news. We have decided to take the job and move this summer. My baby is due July 9th, and we have our house to sell and another house to buy when we get there, but oh well...bring it on. We have decided we will most likely live in Monticello which is in the school district. There is a temple there and I am so excited for that. What a crazy summer we are going to have, but we feel like it is the right thing for our family right now, and we are trusting that things will work out.

No way! That's exciting news. You guys are such an asset our stake will miss having you. Good luck with all that needs to happen.

Wow! Congratulations on the new job! Isn't it funny how these moves and job changes are so unexpected sometimes? That's how it was for us when we moved to Utah. Alan applied for the job just to see what would happen, he found out he got the job, and two weeks later we were in Utah. Let us know if you're ever driving up north (we're in Lehi). We'd love to see you guys and could take you to Thanksgiving Point or something like that. Good luck with everything!

Congratulations on the new job! It's crazy how these unexpected moves/job changes come up. Alan applied for his job in Utah, found out he got the job, and two weeks later we had moved from MT to UT. Let us know if you're ever driving north. We'd love to see you and could take you to Thanksgiving Point or something. Good luck with everything!

Sorry, I didn't mean to leave two (now three) comments - you can delete these last two. I expected it to show up and didn't notice the message at the top of the screen that you had to approve it first. Oops!
