Change of plans?

We were about to head to NV next week to find a place to live ( we seriously did our homework and had a 3 ring binder full of homes we were excited to look at), when Yesterday  afternoon we got a call from ISU (OUR top pick school that we were on the waiting list for) Saying t hey had an opening for Jason (two weeks ago they said it didn't look good as far as people dropping out)! Phew- seriously we had a dead line of next week to give up on ISU! Nothing like Last minute. So we have been in Limbo for the past 24hrs not knowing what to do- the obvious answer would be ISU- we'd save over 60 thousand $! Or is it? We were so stoked to live in sunny Henderson- It'd be a two year trip! Not to mention we'll have a lot more visitors in NV! (Don't lie you'd come visit Las Vegas but not Pocatello-HUH).  All in all we prayed about it believe ISU is the better choice! Come one wit the money we buy a small island for a vacation! Nothing like having Patience and faith! Now I have to tell all the Realtors after they worked hard-sorry it was all for Not!
Ok done with the boring stuff since you aren't reading any of this and just want to see pictures:
We took Heather to this really pretty field by our home with our friends.
She just ran around while I took pictures


good smile
this one is my favorite
we got a few sitting
smelling the flower- but its more a snuff!
Our friends lil boy- what a stud

Oh good! I am glad you got into your first choice! But Kristin and Benny are moving to Las Vegas, so you would have at least had one friend relatively close by. :) But thanks to praying you willbe happiest where you have chosen I am sure!!

PS when you buy your small island I want an invite... :)

Congratulations on getting into ISU! Perfect timing I guess. Are you going to be buying a house in Pocatello or just rent? It sounds like you were maybe going to be buying a house in NV. Just wondered. Good luck with everything!

That's great news. Chad said that ISU is the better choice to help Jason pass his big board exams. So, are you still in town?

Cassidy said...

WOW. That's awesome!!

Emily said...

Ashley Rae said...

That field is beautiful!! Wow. And I'm glad you guys got that other offer! That's nice it saves money for you.

And yes- I want an invite to the island, too...

Justin & Janell said...

Yay! I am so excited for you guys! It is definitely the better choice, although I would have liked you guys closer! Oh well. Yay for drop-outs!

Wow! So crazy how life is at this stage huh! A few months ago we were most likely moving to Vegas for Brian's work but then other stuff opened up and now we will be staying. Always up and down! Cute pics!

good luck with everything...I'm way jealous! You're only 1 1/2 hours from my home. Bear Lake is a lot of fun. You'll have to go visit.
