We have been in Utah for almost 2 weeks now so I thought would fill you in on what we have been up to. The move went really smoothly thanks to family and friends. We have been so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives!!
Ryan was able to find a job with in 2 weeks which was amazing - he is working for a large construction company out of Salt Lake. He is currently working on the Montage in Park City. From what I hear this is a huge Ski Resort project at Deer Valley. The Hotel actually sits between two ski runs - it is going to average around $3,000 a night. He was offered great pay with benefits. Once again we have been so blessed. he is tired from the long hours, but feels grateful to even have work. We hope to have Ryan in school within a year and working towards his Construction Management Degree.
Taylor started school this week and so far loves her Teacher, the kids and the school. She keeps saying, "everyone is so nice". The girls across the street both go to her school - one is even in her class - they have been great to her. She already wants to have a slumber party this weekend - my social butterfly! She had to go back to elementary school to finish sixth grade here, but I think it will be a good transition to Junior High. She starts Piano lessons next week -she is so excited! She loves to be busy!!!
Chase has been sick but seems to be on the mend this week. We are hoping to get him into tumbling or something he can do during the week so he doesn't get bored of just Mom. He is loving all the snow - and he keeps saying, "Sun Out!!!!" I guess this is something new for him :-)
He does not call it home yet, it is the New House. Overall he has done really well with the move.
And I have been trying to make a house a home. Each day I add a few touches that make it feel more cozy. I'm sure it will take no time at all before it looks like we have been here forever. I am learning my way around again and exploring all the new places that have sprung up all over.
Below are some pictures of our new house and neighborhood. Once again we are so lucky for our families. Ryan's family has let us borrow a car until I get one, and my family for this beautiful home we get to live in. We love you!!!
What would our house be without a church out the front door?
