More BIG news!


We are moving back to Oregon!!!! Something I wanted SO bad and wondered if would ever happen is going to happen and SOON! Grant accepted a job at Nike World Headquarters this week and starts April 4th! We are so excited! I can't believe I will get to share this pregnancy with my family and friends and raise our baby as an Oregonian! The beach will be within reach! We can go to Duck games, we can play on Mt Hood and hike in the Gorge. I CAN NOT WAIT!

Of course, it is sad and scary too - we are leaving our little world here. We have good friends and our house and jobs we both love. But I am certain this is the best thing for our growing family and that makes it all a little easier to swallow and prepare for. I'm really hoping this is the start of us finally settling into life a bit and not constantly having to brace ourselves for another hurdle. I feel like our life has always had so many big hurdles. I'm ready for a few smaller ones and to have more local support to help us work through them.

SOOO excited!!
