Not such a great blogger these days...

So, I haven't blogged in almost a year! 2011 was such an intense, "project" year, that I just didn't want to talk about it anymore. Here's what we've been up to in 2012. -moved out of the project house at the end of April...We stayed with Brian's mom during an intense round of job interviews in Southern California. -rode a roller coaster ride of ups and downs during the job hunt. Interviews, second interviews, many trips to Orange County (some lasting less than 24 hours there and back)... -June 26th, Brian signed a contract at his new JOB!!!! Saddleback Valley Unified School District is the lucky district that snatched Brian away from Rivera. It was our original first choice because it is the school district that has Mission Viejo High School, which was where we had hoped our kids could go to school. -July 5th, we moved to Mission Viejo, California. -September, kids started their new schools! Corbin and Macy are at DePortola Elementary, 1/2 a block from our house, Brennah is at LaPaz Intermediate with Brian, and Alli is a freshman at Mission Viejo High School. LOVING IT! So, life is good, God is great, prayers are answered if you just hang on and trust. Now we're making decisions with God's guidance about when and what to purchase house-wise, and I'm sure in the next months we'll know about what direction that's going. Here are some photos of our 2012 so far...
