Yes, it's true - we're moving! At the end of the July, we will be moving to Sioux Falls, SD. This came up so quickly - it is hard to believe that it is happening. Justin was not looking for a new job, but an insurance company in Sioux Falls found him. At this time, we felt that we could not pass up the offer. Although we are excited about being closer to home (and Justin being excited about his new job), this is still difficult. We are leaving an absolutely wonderful community. We are leaving our wonderful friends, our great jobs, and a home that we love so much.
We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to live in Owatonna for about 2 1/2 years. It did not take us long to call this community "home." We will greatly miss our friends when we leave in July. Fortunately, we will only be 3 hours away - close enough to visit often!
We are praying that our house will sell quickly so that we can begin looking for a new house in Sioux Falls. Justin's family is coming this weekend to help him finish the deck. We are looking forward to the deck being done, but we are disappointed that we won't get much use out of it. Hopefully it will help with the resale though!
My sister, Kandi, is coming tonight and staying through the weekend. We are looking forward to having her here - and of course we wish that it would have worked for Kayla to join us too. I hope Kandi wasn't thinking this was going to be a relaxing weekend - I have a long "to do" list for us to complete. :)
Last night we had supper with some of my teacher friends - tonight it's supper with some of our Federated friends. It has been great spending time with all of them!
I am ending with a funny picture of Gizmo ... he must think it's time to go on vacation! He found an empty suitcase in a spare room and decided to snuggle in it!
