Jake is moving so we (the girls and I) decided we'd go with him - wouldn't want him to get lonely or anything!
Beale AFB near Sacramento, California....HERE WE COME!!!!
We'll be packing up and heading out that way mid-January.
We only found out last week.
Um...that's a quick one!
And we'll just pretend like we aren't flying to two different states for the upcoming big holidays or anything - even though we are. So, there goes over two weeks of prep time....gone. goodbye. see ya later. gone. (but for fun stuff, so it's ok?!)
If I'm just a tad sporadic on here, or spacey or stressed or weird...that's why.
Moving makes people be weird.
Moving when you were a military brat who married a military guy is even weirder.
You have almost no emotion left.
Makes for super awkward moments when you tell the friends that do have emotion left.
Super super awkward.
I wish I could fake cry...it would make the awkward not so awkward.
I'm not the only one like this....talk to any military brat (who had a good experience being one) and we are all weird like that. I have to cling to that otherwise I feel like a stone cold jerk.
I have done this before so maybe this time I won't be weird?

10 large moves
Lots of mid-west, Southern and Easter coast -
Such an odd story...my life...I always see the small purposes but I'd love to know what God was up to in the big picture with all of this!
Yes, we are excited.
TOTALLY STOKED DUDE! (just brushing up on my Cali' talk)
Jake is so excited and it's kind of a dream come true, we've been wanting this but had given up asking for it...no joke.
The word/assignment came OUT OF NOWHERE, which means we know EXACTLY where it came from!
Usually you have some sort of indication, or rumor, or know someone who knows someone who heard something or know there's a list coming out, etc....BUT NOT THIS TIME! This time, God wanted the credit all to Himself.
It's Yours Lord!
(total side note, I just found out that California pays people to homeschool/charter school there...$1600 per student....um.....excuse me!? come again!?)
