Chicago here we are!

Well, we are finally here in Chicago! We packed up the truck with MANY of our VA beach friends on Sunday, July, 15th. Thank you sooo much to all of those of you who helped with the loading of the truck and the cleaning of the house. You were such a blessing! We were able to get the truck loaded in an hour and 15 minutes. When we unloaded the truck here, it took us over 6 hours to get it all into the house! It was just Tim, Scott, and I. Yikes! What a day that was! I am glad that is over.

Tim and I have been furiously unpacking boxes and getting our little apartment set up. Tim painted already, the living room is guacamoli green and our bedroom flyaway blue. We will get some picture out soon.

The rest of this week we will be job searching here in the area. I have applied to Trinity for a few positions there and I am looking into some other private schools in the area. I was going to teach in the public school, but it doesn't look like my Illinois state certification will be all lined up in time. So we shall see. I will keep you posted.

We miss you all so much already! Hopefully we can continue to stay in touch through blogging, facebook, e-mail, and phone calls.
