R O A D trip

We just got back from a FABULOUS road trip to Utah to see my sister & her family. What a wonderful, much-needed break! It was a huge reminder to me that I really want to simplify our lives and PLAY more! We had so much fun... a rodeo, family, parks, rafting, Lagoon with good friends, a quick visit (too short) with my cousin... and time to play! We left the big boys there with their cool aunt/uncle for an extended week and drove the 14-hour trip back this weekend. The whole way, we talked more about where we want to end up and how much we want to be closer to family. We're thinking Colorado, Utah, Illinois or even Idaho. The plan was to start looking for jobs and get closer...

Well... this morning, Jim went to work only to check his email only to find out we have orders to move to Ramstein, G E R M A N Y ! What a shock! Now that it's sinking in a little bit, I'm getting super excited!! We put our house on the market three weeks ago so we could move closer to town and the schools, little did we know, we'd be moving out of the country! We've heard nothing but good and can't wait to start our new adventure... we'll be there NLT November 30th!
