A few weeks ago I shared our news on Instagram...
Finally, after all these weeks of processing and packing and saying goodbye, this was the week we actually moved.
What’s next? We will visit our family and friends in Washington for a bit before heading eastbound. Then we have a week to get settled in Michigan and then Brent will head back to work. After going through reorientation and training, he will work in the main office until he is assigned to a long term project. We might be in Michigan for two weeks or for two months (or more!). Since we requested to “travel,” we could be sent to a job site anywhere outside the borders of Michigan state. It’s exciting to think of all the possibilities!
Here’s [all the selfies we took in] our everyday lives this week:
My last coffee date with Amanda, my “sister” on so many levels; I love you and miss you already!
Our last dinner and playtime with the Tomlinson family. I look forward to recreating this picture in years to come. L-R: Baby Elsie (9 months), Big Girl Elsie (3 years), Gavin (5 years), Samuel (2 years)
Our last play date with Zion & Cassey, our close friends; The whole Dickey family holds such a special place in our hearts.
Atlas and Elsie
There’s something amazing about the bond that forms when friends go through hard stuff. So thankful to have this woman by my side as we journeyed into motherhood together. I love you, dear friend!

McKenzie and Heidi—the best babysitters/aunties! These two women are irreplaceable.

Brent and I attended a preview day at the Seattle School of Psychology and Theology while my mom watched the babies. I like to dream about studying for my Masters in Counseling Psychology at this place. Maybe someday!
