Ready or not, here we come!

I am still having computer problems (well, I'm not at the moment, since the computer is not in our posession, but you get the drift) but I had to borrow Kevin's work laptop to let you all in on the latest update about our family. Drumroll please...we're moving back to Texas! We have truly loved our time in Iowa, but can't wait to get back "home"! Kevin just accepted a new job with his company, and we'll be moving to Lubbock! We have some great friends who are there (hi, Angela!) and some of Kevin's family there. Truthfully, Lubbock wouldn't have been my first choice of locations, but we are still so excited to be moving back within driving distance of our families!

We have our first (and dare I say it, hopefully only) house hunting trip planned for next week. They want Kevin to be working full-time there by March 1, so if we don't have a house yet by that time, he'll be going back and forth between there and here until we can all make the move as a family. The kids are of two minds about moving. They are excited to be closer to their grandparents, but will be sad to leave their friends (especially Megan, since she's in school and all).

My head is swimming with house prices, cleaning out closets to get our house ready for the market and wrangling my kids, but ready or not, we're coming home!

Hey...anyone want to buy a house? It's a nice house, but the neighborhood is truly first rate! Whoever gets to move in next door to the Hill's (and in our awesome culdesac) is very lucky!

Congrats to you guys!

We will be there in the middle of March! If you guys are there already and have some time maybe we can get together! :)

Yay! We're so excited for y'all. Good luck with house hunting, I know what a daunting task finding one can be!

Karen said...

Hooray! Hurry up and get here already so we can see you more than once or twice a year.
