We made it to Utah safe and sound and are enjoying being back with Drew! You never know how much you'll miss them until you don't have them around.

Good news, after the HUGE hassle Doug has had to go through for boards, he was finally able to schedule his exam. The only thing that sucks is that he doesn't get to take them until the 28th. So that means we are in Utah until then. I'm kind of ready to be on our way. It sucks being in limbo. But I have enjoyed seeing my family. It's been way too long!

The time has come

I can't believe the day is here. After a busy/frustrating day of loading the moving truck, (which Doug and I had to do all by ourselves since nobody from our ward showed up to help), We are leaving Iowa...forever. Ok, we might come back and visit! We are headed to Utah to pick up Drew and then heading on to begin our adventure in Nevada! It's a little scary, but we are ready. I sat down and thought of all the things I will miss of the place we have called home for the past 3 years, and I came up with quite a bit. I will miss the Farmer's Markets. I LOVE the Farmer's Markets. They are so big and exciting! It makes me want to have a garden so bad. I will also miss the people here. Iowa has some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They accept you instantly.

I do have to say that I will miss these two girls and their little boys like crazy. Good thing they are from the west and maybe they'll come and visit someday.

All three of these boys are within 2 weeks of each other. They are so adorable. I'm sad that we didn't have them a year ago so they could have a chance to play. I love you girls!

So, farewell Iowa. Our time here will always be remembered.

Sorry for the lack of posting. We've been trying to pack everything up. My house looks like this:

Just a little update on Drew. He's having a blast with his grandparents and with my cousins, Tanner and Brenner. (They are 5 and 4). He's being spoiled by going to movies and flying with my brother-in-law Jason on his airplane. Apparently Drew wants to be a pilot when he grows up!

A huge thank you to all who are looking after him while we aren't there. Can't wait to see him. Both Doug and I miss him like crazy! Love you Drew!! See you soon!

So, due to moving and not knowing what's happening at the moment, I'll post when I get a chance. Might not be for a while. But check back, who knows, maybe I'll post when I get to Utah.
