U-Haul

Now that all our family knows..

Kent is probably going to apply for a computer job with another institution. If he were to get the job we would be moving.. 5 hours from here. It would be a huge, huge change. And I'm not one to take to change too kindly. I hate it. However, it would be a great opportunity for Kent with his career. And it's only 5 hours away.. right? Family could easily travel that and so could we. But still.. No family, no friends.. A new place.. an unfamiliar place. New church, new doctor, new dentist, new house.. All new. I'm excited about it but scared. The good thing about this is that the government would buy our house and reimburse us all moving costs. The bad thing is this house, our house, would belong to someone else "outside" the family. That's the big downside. I'll let y'all know how it turns out. The job doesn't close until the end of the month and then it will be probably another month before the decision is made.

Wow. Big changes coming it sounds like.

But you're right...5 hours isn't so bad. I moved 3000 miles away from my folks. LOL

XOXO

Sounds like you are being open minded about it. Just leave it in the Lord's hands, and He will guide and direct your path. I know it must be very consuming in your mind to think about all the changes. Just take one thing at at time... don't forget to breathe.

Take it from someone who has moved A LOT!!! it's not that bad, but the first move away from "home" is the hardest. Best of luck, I hope it turns out how you all want it too.

Maybe I'm a little crazy but I guess being a Navy brat change makes me excited! I mean I always love coming home there is nothing like "home" but to see and feel something new is fun!

I know whatever is best will happen but I'll be thinking of you guys.

Hugs

Well, I'll keep my fingers crossed that things work out in the best possible way for you guys and if you move that it's a smooth transition with lots to look forward to :)

It'd be a big change but girl you'd be good without a doubt!!! Take it from this army wife! :) It's not always easy to leave, but the new adventure can be exciting and your family could grow in ways you NEVER dreamt!! Praying for God's will here.

An exciting, scary, new adventure for sure. Sounds like it would be a good opportunity for Kent, I hope it all works out well for you. We have loads of family that live almost 5 hours away and it's not a bad drive at all!
