Update on our move (with pics of our house)

For those of you wondering, our plans to move to Seattle are coming along smoothly due to God’s provision.  We are in the final weeks before the move and are getting the last things settled for our big transition.  Here are the highlights:

1.  We just moved out of the apartment, moved our belongings into temporary storage, and moved our persons into my in-laws house.  We’ll be staying here for 4 weeks until we leave for Seattle.  Our move couldn’t have gone better thanks to the best group of guys from church who helped us out tremendously.  We moved out in record time and it just took such a load of my shoulders.

2.  I found a professional moving company to move all of our stuff out to Seattle.  Next to passing my licensure exam, this is what I was most stressed about.  Originally, my dad and I were going to load up a Penske truck and drive it across country (while towing my car).  But, after some serious consideration of that, we decided against it, and once again God has come through for us in another aspect of this transition, and provided a company that is trustworthy (I hope), and helpful, and comes at an amazing cost.  This also means that my dad and I can now enjoy our drive across country and do a little more sight-seeing along the way.  Our tentative plans include going to Mt. Rushmore and possibly Yellowstone.  We also hope to camp out a night or two, especially under that good ole Montana sky!  I’ll try to take pictures and post them on here in the near future.  Our leave date is July 28th.

3.  I finally took my PT licensure exam last week and that is a huge load off b/c that was really waying me down.  I studied for 3 solid weeks for hours each day and I’m just so thankful I’m done.  Hopefully, I passed that dang test and can finally put this whole school thing passed me once and for all.  If not, well… I don’t want to think about that.  I should find out soon if I passed and if so, I’ll let the whole world know!

4.  Emily and I once again have been take care of by God in that He has miraculously provided for us a house to rent.  This is a dream house for us b/c it’s 1 mile from my clinic, in an awesome neighborhood, it’s 3 freaking bedrooms, has a 2-door freaking garage, and it comes at a wicked awesome price.  Can you tell I’m excited?  I mean, I’ve lived in dorm or an apartment for the last 8 years of my life so I don’t know what I’m gonna do with a home.  To say the least, Emily and I can’t wait to get there.  We’re just so thankful that God provided it.  Here are a few pictures of it (with the current resident’s furniture):
