Very Thankful

As some of you know, we have been tossing around the idea of getting out of the Coast Guard for a while now. Sean has been looking for a job since the first of May and he has accepted a job with the O'Brien Group out of Plainsboro, New Jersey. So, a-packing we will go! It has only been 11 months since we moved to Naperville but we have felt very impressed that we needed to move on from the Coast Guard at this time. I'm not one for good-byes, so I hope that I haven't offended anyone but I couldn't cry because this has been a very difficult decision and true test of my faith because I haven't been able to see the light at the end of the tunnel like Sean has been able to with this move. We are in the process of trying to get to family reunions in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and Utah in amongst all of this moving and I just have to say that I am so grateful to everyone who has helped or will be helping us as we try to accomplish this monumental task of moving for the fourth time in 4 years and doing it with a 3 year old and a two year old (who is cutting 4 molars at once!) while driving across the United States from Utah to New Jersey (Crazy, I know!) I have a bunch of pictures that I will upload once we get to our new place in NJ. I just wanted to say thank you for all of the help and prayers we've received over the past 6 weeks.
