I'm sure you've felt it - the overwhelming feeling of having so much to express, so much to say, so many updates to give. So many that you have to ask, "Where do I even start?" So, I'll start with some of the basics:

  • We moved to Maryland.

  • We had an amazingly fun drive across country to get here (above we are pictured in Philly, one of the stops on the trip).

  • I have more boxes and stuff than I know what to do with.

  • I have the internet - who knew a 2 week wait could be so long?

  • Our apartment has a washer and dryer - hallelujah.

  • We miss Idaho, friends, family, and loved ones.

  • We are grateful for friends old and new, families who care, and all the thoughts, prayers, phone calls, letters, texts, facebook comments, and e-mails we've received to let us know you're still there and you still care. Thank you!

Being away from home has definitely increased my need to be electronically connected. So never fear - more posts to come!

Glad you had a fun, safe trip and that you are feeling settled. Best of luck to you both in this new adventure!

Tim and Angela Johnson said...

Hip Hip Hooray on your move. I am so glad you are closer to us. You guys are the best and we miss you like crazy!

Bart and Krista said...

WAIT? Why didn't you stop at "Hotel Paxton?" Whitney is the BEST host! She'll wake you up at the butt-crack of dawn and climb into bed with you! Seriously though, it would have been so fun to visit with you. Let us ever know if you need a fun trip to OHIO. Speaking of guests.. would you ever want three and a half visitors?

Maryland!? That is wonderful! I watched the Boise state game last night and thought, "Ah our friends Jeff and Karla are there..." BUT I WAS WRONG! I hope you guys are doing great. We miss seeing you.

Dane and Jess said...

Congrats on the move! We moved to Texas last year, and I know what you mean about missing family and wanting to stay more electronically in touch! Thank goodness for blogs. Best wishes in your adventures!

You amaze me how you make the best of everything your life throws at you! I am so glad you are settled in and still smiling :) Just so Jeff knows, Kirk was pretty jelous when he called from the mall getting ready to listen to Glenn and Sarah!!!!

Yay Maryland. I am so excited for your new adventure. If you ever make the trek across the U.S. again, feel free to stay with us. We will serve you some awesome corn.
