Well, here goes nothin!

This view.....



Well it'll be our view for the next 3 years?!?!  That's right we're moving to Colorado!  We're still in utter shock mode because we really never thought Brian would get the job at the Academy, but he did!  It's still not for sure yet aka we don't have orders in our hand yet but as far as we know now, we will be moving there! 

 I've been going through a roller-coaster of emotions. Excited to expose our children to all that is Colorado (mountains! skiing! nice summers! no deployments for awhile! friends we know there!) but so very sad thinking of the fact that we'll be further away from home and having to say goodbye to all of our friends here. I was a mess and a half last night as I told some of my good friends here that we're leaving. I'm sad not only for our sake but for our kids sake too. They love playing together and are going to be so sad when they have to part ways.  Such is the life in the military but it sucks. Just plain sucks.  Good news though is that we are coming back here to Offutt AFB (once you get on it, you can never get offutt!) in 3 years and chances are, a lot of our friends will still be here. 

So we have a lot to do before June or July when we PCS (move). We have to sell our house, find a new preschool for Brady, find a house to rent in Colorado, and move all of our stuff. So if anyone has any insight on living in the Colorado Springs area, I'd love to hear it! And even though we're not there yet, I'm hoping we get a list of visitors just waiting to come see us in Colorado! :)

Congratulations! I'm sure there will be both good and bad things about moving but you're off on a new adventure! Enjoy! :)

That's exciting!!! Yay for no deployments!!! And comforting too that you'll be going back in the future. I hope your friends are all still there. :) (Love the joke about the base's name!)

Also, you would move right after I wrote your address in pen in my address book. I know, I know, cardinal sin in the military wife handbook, right? ALWAYS PENCIL. ;)

We have friends in stationed Colorado Springs. I love seeing all of their pictures, and I can't wait to see all of yours too!

Bittersweet emotions! Happy for your new opportunity, but sad to see our dear friends move! You are such an outgoing and sweet family, you'll make your new home in no time and settle in! :) Please let me know how I can help in anyway!
