Changes


We have listed our house. About a month ago Dallas and I made the tentative decision to move to Logan to finish our education at Utah State. Dallas wants to be a Civil Engineer, and they have a great program up there (and they don't have an engineering program at UVU at all yet). I have been really excited about the move, but the reality is finally hitting me.

I am so sad to sell our house. I absolutely love it. We have worked so hard for it, we have learned so much from it, and it actually feels like a part of the family. I'm going to hate to leave it behind. I just hope whoever moves in loves it like we do, and treats it well. (I make it sound like a family pet or something). The market is slow, so we aren't expecting to sell it fast. We probably won't actually make the move to Logan until next spring (the EARLIEST would be December).

With the move comes changes in occupation, a new ward, new neighbors, new house, new life really. I'm going to miss living so close to Grandma and Grandpa Kaiserman, and I will miss some of our new friends (especially Lindsey and McKenzie!). I have felt so overwhelmed and find myself crying sometimes because it's the only way I know how to deal with it. It's silly because I really do think it will be wonderful! All the same, change is just hard sometimes.

So Sad you are moving all the way to Logan and not coming to play in Cedar City and get an engineering degree with Tyler. :( Also I saw pictures from your fun Fourth of July on Cami's page...I don't blame you for having your child on a leash, that parade is nuts!

I think our family might be the only family who is excited for your move. Change is hard, but it is also so much fun (especially if you live near the Hansen family).

I hope that everything works out well and is low stress. Love you.

Logan will be awesome! I love it there. You will be closer to me now! I remember how you feel. I was very nervous to move here and have to make new friends and be even further from my family. Changes are always a great opportunity for growth and really exciting actually!

Brody and Ashley said...

I did not need to tell you that. You have always been such a strong person and I can tell you are still amazing. Thank you for all your inspiring comments on my blog.

This sucks.

I couldn't have said it better myself. It is bitter sweet. I know what you mean about leaving the house. I just feel like this is where my life really started, at least my family life. You can cry all you want, I lose sleep every night thinking about all that has to happen and all the changes. Like I said, very bitter sweet.

Changes to life are good! Also, I love the changes to your blog. I have to say that I'm so glad I have the life I do--there are so many unexpected things I never imagined for myself, and I really think they've made me stronger and happier. Besides, I think you are probably the strongest person I know. You continue to inspire everyone whose life you touch.

BTW, I love your new layout!

katie said...

What! I was not prepared for this. We haven't even hung out yet (past blogging). You have to join me at the Jack Johnson concert. Let me know if your in.

katie said...

If there is a will there is a way. I will keep crossing my fingers you can make it.

Change is hard, but it sounds like this might be what you guys have to do for schooling. What a darling house. I love it! I bet you have so many memories. You'll look back and see it years from now and think that that's where your little man learned to walk and talk. I do that with ours in Santaquin. I AM SAD YOU ARE LEAVGING! You better come back! I had such a blast the other night!

Trent and Whit said...

What the?!?!?! That's great that you guys are going to Logan but sad at the same time! I had no idea that you were planning on doing that. . . If Heber was closer to the U, we'd buy your sweet house!

Trent and Steph said...

It will be an exciting time when you guys do finally move. I know what you mean about your home. I fell the same way about ours. Good luck on selling it.
