An opportunity at his previous employer presented itself to us and we decided to take the leap. We are both very excited and very sad at the same time. I have been really anxious to move up there over the last few months, but now that it is official, the reality of it is sinking in. Obviously, I am so sad to leave my family and friends , but I am surprisingly really having a hard time leaving my job where I have spent the last 9 years. I know I will love being a stay at home mom, but I have always worked and I don't know how it will feel to just rely on Troy for everything and not make any financial contribution to our family. The idea seems so weird to me. I dont want to dwell on all of the obvious negative things about leaving Utah. Some of the things I am most excited about:
*Getting to spend more time with Troy's family so they can be close to our kids and vice versa (I am counting on still seeing my family alot since I know they will come to Boise often, RIGHT????)
*Being one step closer to getting my dream house in the country
*Living in a more rural/down to earth place
*Getting into a more affordable home so we can have more resources to play and do the things we enjoy
*Troy having a job that he ENJOYS so he is happier and can be home with us more
*Camping and playing!
*The chance to get to know and explore a new city and state
*Not having to work so I can focus on being a wife, mother, and having the chance to explore new hobbies that I have wanted to learn about for so long.
Utah, you have had a good 10 year run, but I am excited to take on a new adventure...Idaho, you better not let me down!
Such a handsome boy. Uncle Scott, how do you like his shirt???
I can't believe how white his hair is getting. I never imagined I would have a toe-headed baby.
He was running around with his hands in the air, just laughing and laughing.
Is it just me or does he not look exactly like Troy in this picture just with blonde hair and blue eyes?? From the look on his face, to the way he is walking, and even his style. All he needs is just a Boise St hat to wear backwards and you wouldnt be able to tell the two of them apart. :)
He loved touching the water,
but then decided splashing was much more fun.
He wasn't too excited when mom decided he was wet enough.
After we got home, he enjoyed a good game of peek a boo with me and his Auntie.
