*We've MOvEd!!

MOVING IN....

(October 2007)









....AND MOVING OUT

(July 2008)










Boxes, Boxes, Boxes!!!

*This last week has been busy as we've moved...again! (This time from 4700 sq. ft to 1200 sq. ft.) I feel like moving is becoming a talent of ours! Actually it's been a really emotional month or so for me with everything going on in our lives. So Tim and I counted up last night all the places we have lived and we figured that this is the 11th place we've lived in together but only our 9th official move considering when we had 2nd homes. Thank You to Tim for doing MOST of the work on this move. I couldn't have done it without him!

*So now we are almost settled here in our quaint little condo in Mesa and we are missing our friends in Gilbert. We will be here for just a few months as we put in multiple offers on homes until we get "THE DEAL of Deals!" With the market like it is and us being patient, I feel like we can get an awesome deal. Meanwhile for the time being, I think I'll be homeschooling spencer & kaylea in this 3 bedroom condo...Oh Fun! Needless to say we'll be taking many trips to the library and even one "Trip"/History Lesson back east.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with the "moving talent". That's a great way to be optimistic...calling it a talent. Since we have been married we have never stayed in a place longer than 2 years. Believe it or not...we're trying to move the Gilbert area right now...not looking like it's going to happen but we're trying. I'm dying to put my "moving talent" to good use. I want to move so I can see my hubby more. His school is too far away!

And I am sure you will make that 3 bedroom condo feel just like home. You are always so good at making it feel that way so fast. I am glad you are finally settled. Be patient and you will find the right deal. Hey, we have a couple of "deals" right now!!!! Anyone? Please! Hang in there Audra, you will be blessed.

crazy...we've switched places...i moved so so much when i was younger, and now I've lived in this place I don't love for the longest anywhere in my whole life...5 years...I love how where we want to be and where Heavenly Father wants us to be can be totally different places...You are sure to get a great deal right now... we WERE looking especially since Lyal changes careers but Heavenly Father answered my questions with a new big ole fat calling...oh well...lol...at least you have less to clean :)

I'm sure you will have a great home. Lots of repos on the market too ... if you can find something that isn't trashed. Good luck with homeschooling too!

your poor thing...moving is no fun! Hang in there:)

Ezra & Kian said...

Homeschooling?! You certainly are ambitious! Sounds like the smartest plan though since you might be moving AGAIN pretty soon. :) Hopefully you end up somewhere close to us!

Your kids looks so darn cute with their lemonade stand! I can't believe how much money they raked in! They must be great at marketing and advertising! :)

Audra, you better be looking for THE Deal back here cause there is a big ol' empty hole with you gone. We miss you!

Tracey said...

Good luck with homeschooling... you are much more patient than I could ever be. You are a great mom - so I am sure you will have a positive experience. Have fun back East.

Stephanie said...
