The official announcement

It's official. L-3 made the announcement today that Brent was being named the new Controller and Director of Finance at CS-West in Salt Lake. What that means is this -- you salt lake folks get us back. We're moving back to the Salt Lake area mid July. Brent will be commuting back and forth beginning June 1st, so all you fellas, keep him in mind when he's done with work and bored. I'm sure he'd love to golf or have a home cooked meal once in a while... hint, hint...;)

The kids are taking the news pretty well so far. Sarah's only request was that she have a blue or green room, and a neighborhood that had a girl her age. Geoff is just ready to be out of this middle school, so he jumped at the chance to leave (surprisingly!). Jake seems fine with another move....that is, until he learns he'll be leaving behind his buddy Matthew.

Our bishop already threatened to call his mob connections in his big italian family and see to it that we don't leave....

Anyway, the next 2 months will be quick, stressful ones. But, this time our move will happen knowing we're not planning on going ANYWHERE for quite some time. The kids will be settled before they get to high school, so that's good.

Alos, there's a few new posts done. I still have all of Gilly's trip out here to do, but I'll get to that when I can.

Oh my gosh! That was a surprise. I didn't realize that was coming so soon. I'm happy for you guys though because I know you've been wanting that. Congrats to Brent and his new job. He's quite the hard worker and totally deserves everything good that happens.

I'll call you this week and get more details.

We are getting lucky out here. Chelsey is moving to the Wasatch Front while Adrianne is going to be a short 8 hour drive away from us in Colorado Springs. Now we've got to figure out how to get Lindsey, Lance, Dave, and Jason a little closer... -Jess
