We are officially back in Ohio!
Its been a very hectic few weeks, but we are finally getting settled into a routine for the summer. Our routine is set to be disrupted yet again in late August, but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start back at the beginning.
Last fall, Meg and I decided we had finally had enough of Texas, and wanted to move. We considered Washington state for quite awhile, but in the end we decided to come back to Ohio to be closer to family while the kids grow up (we’d still like to end up in Washington after the kids are grown ). With the decision made we started applying for jobs like crazy, and early this year I got a job offer from GE Aviation. I took the job and we started on a whirlwind of activity to try and sell our house in this bad housing market and at the same time find a house to buy in Ohio. Our house sat for about 6 weeks with very little activity, and our first house hunting trip didn’t really lead to much. Thankfully God blessed us greatly one evening when a potential buyer saw our house and made us a good offer that very night. We negotiated just a little and were under contract.
With our house sale pending, we made the move up here, had all our household goods put in storage, and are currently staying with Ryan and Sarah (thanks guys!). We immediately restarted our house hunt, and found the perfect place. The downside is that we can’t move in to the house until the end of summer, so we’ve settled in to our routine at Ryan and Sarah’s, and so far haven’t killed each other yet! Austin and of course Xavier and Ali are there as well, so Ryan and Sarah have quite the full house.
We haven’t been taking many pictures given all the craziness, but I did do an album of all of our last Texas adventures several weeks ago. Check it out at gallery.joshandmeg.net.
Stay tuned for more updates, but I’m sure it’ll be pretty hectic until we finally get settled into our own place.
