changes.

I hadn't really planned on posting anything about this until after the weekend. But word travels fast on the Internet. And this is as close as I can get to telling some of you "in person." 

I quit my job yesterday. And accepted a new job. (not quite in that order, though.) 
So sometime this summer, we are leaving here... 



And heading here...


More details to come. It's a really good story.
And it's an absolute God-thing. No doubt.

In the meantime... anyone want to buy a house? =)

Wow!!!!! I hadn't heard that yet -- on the Internet :). That's awesome -- not that you guys are leaving but that you're hopefully pursuing what's best for your family :). I hope your house sells fast! (And, thanks for your nice and encouraging comment on my blog)....

How exciting!!! Turns out that we are down to choosing between Newton and Hutch and will be moving next summer - I would so buy your house because I love that neighborhood! Can't wait to hear the backstory!

The page has been turned...so happy for you! Can't wait to see what God has in store for your sweet family and happy that we'll get to live closer again!

Oh my goodness, Amy!!!! I knew you had said it would happen at some point but when we last talked, you weren't ready for that yet. It sounds like you're okay with it now and it's the right timing. I'd love to hear more! Hope everything goes so smoothly for you! I do certainly miss Newton often but there are so many perks to living here as well. I'm sure you'll feel the same way!

We knew it was coming but didn't think this quick! We need to chat some time and hear the story. If is a God thing - I can't be anything but happy for your family!

See you around for one last summer - London will be disappointed she was just mentioning we needed to babysit Gretchen again.

Holy Moly! This is so exciting! And you know I totally understand the "it's a God thing"...and believe me, go with His grace and peace! You'll be blessed in amazing ways, and so will your family. So glad you have this blog so I can keep up with the Jones's! ;)
