So where are we going?
That's right - we are heading back to where it all began for the two of us. Chris was offered a position at our alma mater and we are hoping to make this new move somewhat permanent! I'll be honest, four moves in 3.5 years (not including the moves into storage sheds, garages, and basements) is more than I ever anticipated, and I would certainly welcome something a bit more on the permanent side.
Chris will be starting his new job a week from tomorrow and we will move all of our stuff as soon as we can get it all packed up (probably a week later). We're planning on renting a storage shed to store everything until we can get our living situation squared away. My commute to Richmond is going to shorten by approximately 50 miles/day - which I am sure you can imagine, I'm thrilled about.
As always though, moves are bittersweet. I have become friends with some wonderful women here, and I will miss our church and especially my Bible study I've been in while we were here. I'm sad I won't be here when friends' babies are born and be able to participate in friends' holiday parties. Chris has really loved his boss and co-workers and they will be missed, as well. We are both very excited for this opportunity, though, so we're packing up and heading out. We would love and appreciate prayers for all the details, because, as always, there are lots of little details to work out in a move.
