I’ve been putting off sharing this on the blog mainly because I am not quite ready for it to be true, but alas the time is coming quickly upon us for the Army to move our family out of our sweet Savannah and on to a new adventure. We knew that another move was on the horizon but for months were waiting to see where we would end up. At the beginning of the this month we got the official word that our family is Missouri bound!
Long-time readers might remember that we were actually stationed in Missouri before moving to Savannah so this assignment is one that is familiar to us! In fact, Emmalyne was born there so I have fond memories of our time in MO. However, there will be some big adjustments for our family in the months ahead. We will have to re-adapt to small town living because our location is quite rural. I am SO bummed to be saying goodbye to the delicious restaurants of Savannah and I foresee many weekends spent in St. Louis to get our foodie fix 😉
I am excited for this next step in our lives. Chris is super pumped about his job as he will be instructing junior officers. I am pumped to know where I can look for a job. One of the pros in our minds too of small town life is the emphasis on family time and the friendships that you create when the outside world doesn’t sneak in. Some of our very best friends from our time in Texas will be stationed there with us so I am envisioning BBQs, play dates, and lots of laughter in the months to come.
We don’t leave until April so in the meantime we have our work cut out for us. Our house goes on the market in a week, I have 59 days (!!!) left of PA school, and boards will quickly follow. We plan to make the most of our remaining time in Savannah and check off some of the restaurants that remain on our wish list too!
Any-who … I am excited to finally share this news with you all! Positive thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated over these next few months because I have quite a bit on my plate!
