why yes, we are…

…moving to wyoming, that is.  and not only are we moving to wyoming, but we’re leaving in just over a week!  that was not in the plans originally.  we knew we were moving to wyoming, but the original plan was for jonathan go to before us for his 10 week training, and then we would join him.  but yesterday that all changed…God had other plans.  now we are all leaving together…which means we have to pack up our place and leave on the 4th (yep, a week from monday!).  it came about so quickly, but we can definitely see God’s had in it all.  despite that, though, i’m still having a bit of a hard time wrapping my mind around it.  all this time i knew i had 10 more weeks here to organize & pack, and spend time with a few close friends here…and now i don’t have that.  it makes me sad.  but i’m so thankful we can all go together as a family and not have to be separated.  we even have a rental lined up and everything.  we were worried a couple days ago about several things, and then yesterday everything was cleared up for us.  we’re amazed and thankful.

oh yeah….we’re moving to a town called rawlins.  it’s near the bottom center of wyoming off I-80.  population of about 8-9 thousand.  from what we hear it is pretty self-contained.  there’s not even a wal-mart there…closet one is about an hour and a half away.  it’ll be an adjustment.  be praying for us.  we are really excited.  and i’m nervous, too.  pray that i find some women to connect with…and friends for the girls.  and for jonathan’s training and new job.  thank you, friends!

and of course i can’t post a blog w/out pics…

Wow! That is amazing that you have such a short time. I'm not sure where or how I would begin. Hopefully you have some friends/family to help you pack it up. It's really nice that you won't be separated from your husband though. That makes it worth it!
