|This was the view outside our complex! It was always so beautiful!|
|The craziness that was my room after the ravages of planning a wedding. Oh dear. Maybe I shouldn't post this online...|
|Sweet notes from my students when I got back from my wedding|
So after our crazy, hectic, and fun month of May, we had to say goodbye to our first apartment, both of our cars, and everyone in Utah and head East to Ohio! After much deliberation, we decided to sell my car to my little brother Michael who was still going to BYU. Tyler's car was totaled in an accident earlier in the year so we turned it over to the insurance company and claim the money instead. So my last day of school, we had a little last minute play that we performed for some parents, played some games, and I sent them on their way. ( I was so ready to be done that day, but looking back I miss them so much!! I wish I was around so I could see how they're doing!!) Then I had to pack up and clean my entire classroom (no small task) and take it all home to be packed into the UHaul with all our other stuff. Then we left the keys with Michael, said goodbye, and drove up to Layton to spend the weekend with Tyler's sister Jenn for her baby Sawyer's baby blessing. It was a nice fun last little family party to send us off!

|7 States later, we made it to Ohio from Utah!|
Well we only intended on being there for a month or so..........fast forward six months and we're still there. Hahahaha. It took longer than we thought to get licensed and find a job, and when I did it was only a part time job so we couldn't afford any houses or apartments. Then we thought the job would possibly turn into a full time job, but it didn't. SO now we're looking to get another part time job. While it hasn't been the most ideal arrangement, I have loved getting to know the Guys better and I am SO grateful for their generosity in letting us stay with them!!!! Thank goodness for great families!!! I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for blessing our family in so many ways already!!
