Moving

Please excuse my long absence. I've been extremely preoccupied.

We are preparing to move. This moving process involves buying a house in a different part of the state and waiting for the house to be built. We are hoping to be moved by the end of July. Ben has already started his new job, so we are apart while I finish packing up the rest of our belongings in our St. George apartment.

We have a place picked out and things seem to be working out well, but I'll wait to post the specifics when things are a little more settled.

As we drove away to head back to St. George, after dropping Ben off at his job yesterday, Paige cried, "Oh, no! What'd we do with mine Daddy? I never get to see mine Daddy!"

She's been missing him. I've tried to explain that this separation of a week won't be nearly as long as the others, but I'm not sure a 2 year-old can really understand that.

Ah, that is so cute about what Paige said...it almost makes you cry. So where is Ben's new job? Where are you guys moving to? Mike has been asking about you guys and what Ben is up to lately. Probably been wanting to take him shooting and show him his arsenal. It's pretty ridiculous...One for every year of his life.

Quinn is totally this way EVERY monday and Friday morning. She whimpers because she thinks he is never coming back since he works for almost 24 hours on Monday and Tuesday and then again on Friday and Saturday. Dear me. And if Paige ever learns to say "my" instead of "mine" I'll die. It is too cute. i need that in my life.

I e-mailed you a furnished house for rent in American Fork. They said it was available June, July and part of August if needed.
