The Latest

I apologize to all of you that have checked my blog and have been disappointed to see the same old post there. I am now in Southern California at my parents house. We are now adjusted to the time zone and the kids are having a blast with my family.

I owe a few pictures to the past few weeks.... so here it goes:

Among the many things a wife can be proud of her husband for I think graduating from school, preforming their children's baby blessings, follwoing through with household duties, and husbandly duties is a good start. I have to say that I am so proud of Taylor for all that he has accomplished. He graduated with High Honors, scholarships and with a successfull match to his choice of residency. All of his 20 years of shcool has led up to this point in his life, and I am so excited to say that he made it. We still have a long road ahead of us, but a girl couldn't ask for more. Taylor is a wonderful friend, husband, and father. Thank you honey for working so hard and for always making things work out for us. The lord has blessed us so much. We can't wait to start our new life in Arizona. Good job honey!!!! (Zoe walked across the stage with Daddy in her cap and gown.... it was so cute)!!!!

How is everybody out there in blogger land?? I am a little busy these days trying to tie up a bunch of loose ends. Lately we have been getting together with our friends that we are going to have to say goodbye to soon (sob sob) and visiting places we haven't seen before we move. When we got to Philly 4 years ago we saw a lot... Delaware, New York, and various parts of Pennslvania. But believe it or not we hadn't seen Washington DC yet. So we packed the kids up last weekend and went on our mary way. That was a lot of fun and pictures are on there way from that trip.

In the mean time, I am just trying to keep my head above water and prepare myself for the big move and Taylor's graduation.

Our timeline....

Taylor's Graduation: May 15th
Fly out of Philadelphia (Kids and me) May 20th -- then I fly to California (not directly to AZ)
Taylor and his dad pack up the rest of the house and drive Cross Country May 23rd-- he will drive straight to AZ
Then I fly out of California to AZ with my mom and kids on June 1st

I have a little less than 3 weeks to say my goodbyes, give my hugs, pack the house and fly to Cali, lets just say I'm experiencing a bucket load of emotions right now.

Also, I need to address my last post.-- My Aunt Vicki pointed out that I know more people in AZ then my new next door neighbor... and she's totally right. What I meant was I didn't know anyone in my immediate area, however, I do know quite a few people in AZ, and I am so excited to be close to them too!!! A big shout out to my cousins-- Heather and Joy. Heather is in Prescott Valley with her children, and Joy is in Queen Creek with her two kids. Both drives are totally doable and believe me will be done on numerous occasions. I can't wait to see you two.
Then.... one of my best friends - Kristi Tibbs lives in Tempe, where her husband is going to Business School. Also, some old time friends of ours the Kunz's live in Tuscon. Not to mention Taylor's life long buddy Rob Fisher in Gilbert. And I can't forget Kerry and Allen - Taylor's aunt and uncle on his dad's side.

So... all in all Yes... I know many people in AZ and we couldn't be more excited to be closer to all of them.
