My Dad got called as an LDS mission president to the Rostov Na Donu, Russia Mission. WHAT?! That’s right. My mom and dad will be leaving me for THREE whole years. Isn’t that the saddest and most awesome thing you’ve ever heard? Not many people get to just pick up and move to Russia. Talk about an awesome experience and opportunity for them. I am so super excited for them and so super sad for us! And I say us because not only is my mom my best friend she is also my photographer and crafty helper. The blog will suffer. Brian will have to take the hairstyle photos and videos from now on… I can’t promise they’ll be awesome ha ha!! Anyway- more to come on that later.
The second and most exciting thing-
We’ve been living with my parents for the last three years waiting for Brian to get into graduate school. Well get this- he got into ALL four schools he applied to! I am so proud of that man. He is such a good husband and dad and the last three years have not been easy on him. All that crazy hard work preparing for the GMAT and struggling through crappy job after crappy job is finally paying off.
So what will we be?
Ohio State Buckeyes, Notre Dame Irish, BYU Cougars or Boston University Terriors?
We are movin’ to Provo to be BYU Cougars!
Wasn’t he the cutest little nugget?
Ha! Silly Provo. We’ve already lived there once! I know it’s not super exciting and believe me if it weren’t through the power of prayer we would probably be going somewhere else. Somewhere exciting and new! Apparently the Lord has something different in store for us and we are confident BYU is where we need to be. We are so blessed to have gotten in as this is an opportunity few receive and we’re counting our blessings every day.
So that’s our awesome news. Parents are moving to Russia and we’re moving to Provo. This busy home of ours will be completely vacant in a few months. Makes me kind of sad to see this chapter of our lives close. I have loved living with my parents. They’re the awesome type of parents. Ones you can handle living with. Ones you don’t want to live without! I am definitely excited though for a change and to finally have a place of our own.
