DC here we come! (Again)

Well, it's finally official. We are heading to Walter Reed for the next 4 years at least. If you had told me this a month ago I wouldn't have been so thrilled. But it feels so nice to know what our plans are. It feels like a big load lifted. Sorta like the last month of pregnancy, where you just don't care anymore how or what happens you just want it to be OVER! So my concerns with the DC area have also started to fade since I have been looking at the falling housing prices. It would appear that we can actually afford a decent home there. (Depending on what you call decent). We thank our lucky stars that we sold our home there 3 years ago before the market changed. Somebody up there must like us. Hope He is still smiling when we try to get the stars to align in our favor when we go looking for a home with: 3 great schools, a good ward, good commute for Troy, and not too pricey. Could we actually be that lucky?!?

Yes, you could be that lucky/blessed! We are excited for your family, time to settle down a little bit.

Take Care

Thanks Danielle! Yes it is nice not to be uprooting every year for a while. And, hey... If you gotta move around you may as well keep moving back to the same spots over and over. If we keep this pattern up it will be Korea after this. Hmmm...

Congratulations on "knowing". My sister bought a house in Woodbridge, VA last summer. I think she really likes the area.

That's great Kelly! You'll be able to be settled for a while. Have so much enjoyed reading about you and your family - oh and Tad got orders and we're all heading back to Korea for two more years!

Have a wonderful week!

Thanks Michelle! Are you guys really going back to Korea! How exciting. At least it will be less culture shock the second time around. Best of luck! I would love to catch up with you on your blog.

Send me an invite, it won't let me on as of now.

Wow...what a post! I'm so glad things have finally settled and you now "know". I definitely think everything will work out for you and you will be "that lucky". You're just too good for it not too. It's amazing how much the Lord is part of our lives.
