We are moving... again!

(If you are keeping track, this is our 6th move in seven and a half years... and yes we are crazy.)

We are moving to England!!  I can't believe I am typing out those words right now.  It has been such a whirlwind leading up to this, that it is hard to comprehend that this is actually happening... and soon!  I know you guys are wanting the details, so here it goes!

Ryan was offered an incredible opportunity in the UK with his current employer.  So we are moving to Warwick, Warwickshire in England which is about an hour and a half north of London.  The plan is to move out there at the beginning of January so that gives us time to get through the holidays and secure our visas/passports (yes, Maggie gets one too!).  I don't know the actually date we will be flying out yet but as soon as the visas arrive we are booking the flights.  

What is so great about this opportunity is that it's only for 18 months!  I feel like that is a prefect amount of time to experience England, travel, soak in the culture and not get too home sick.  It was a hard decision as we didn't want to take Maggie away from family.  But at the same time this is probably the perfect time to go before she is in school.  I am also so thankful for technology and the ability to factime!  

There is so much to get done between now and then.  Throw in the holidays and we will be there in a blink of an eye.  I am really trying to enjoy this whole experience and not let the stress overtake me.  Knowing that we have such a short amount of time over there it's just not worth letting the stress ruin the fun.  :)  This is a once in a life time opportunity, and we plan to live it up & travel to as many places as possible!

Anybody that wants to come visit us, are more the welcome!  But you better hurry as we won't be there for long.  ;)

Sorry this pictures are so blurry.  I can not get this girl to sit still these days!

We will be keeping you updated on all the fun times ahead of us!
