The last post doesn't exactly suffice for the last two months! Although this slideshow is long, it doesn't have everything...Don and Cindy had a wonderful visit with many hikes with natalie, kalani went to girls camp for the first time, Raymond had a fabulous time at cub scout day camp, Chris visited Texas and found a job and took MANY pictures of houses for me...Even to our last day in utah with David working hard to pack our truck in a way only my father could duplicate, kathy cleaning mom's house and helping to get us out the door and the Leavitts providing a sanctuary for us...and so very many more people than that... some day we may unpack the camera cable and post the pictures of my parents visit.

5. We felt the Kelly family needed a tougher image, so we moved to the "don't mess with us" state.

4. Our skin was cracking in the utah dryness so we decided to try for some humidity...in August

3. fire ants, bigger spiders, more snakes, larger everything creepy crawly...oh this is supposed to be a reason you say? hmm we're studying biology this year in our homeschool.

2 KITTENS...we wanted a home of our own to bring our kittens to

1. There is that little thing about Chris getting a history teaching and coaching job here...and we do really like being WITH him.



We have read in the scriptures about some of the travels of God's people. My first thought with the Exodus, considering our situation was gratitude that we didn't have 40 years between homes but I'm still looking for milk and honey sources.
