Our Decision

Well, the Harrmanns' will be getting a new address.

We've decided to take the job in St. Joseph, Michigan -- which means that we will be Wisconsinites for only a short while longer.

It was not an easy decision -- we spent all weekend mulling it over and praying, but in the end, it seems the best choice and we are VERY excited about starting our new lives across the lake.

For those who don't know, St. Joe is a lot like Sheboygan -- right on the lake, with a VERY similar community... just more touristy because that's where all the Chicago folks come to spend the summer in their bazillion dollar McMansions. My father grew up there and so we have some family in the area as well.

Anyway! Now life will be unbelievably busy as we get our house ready for sale (UGH), pack up, (double UGH) and move out. We'll keep you all posted on our progress!

In other news, Nate shot Rhy's 6-month portrait this past weekend and I'll be posting photos soon -- hopefully later tonight!

Oh yay! How exciting for you guys!! Closer to family and you're still on the lake. We'll have to make a plan to meet in Ann Arbor some time after you guys are well settled in and ready to explore Michigan.

Good luck with your move! You will have fun exploring a new state, though. That will be fun. You'll be closer to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. I'd love to see that someday! According to Mapquest, you'd only be about 3-1/2 hours away! Could be a summer field trip! LOL!

Congrats on the decision! As ones who have moved recently, we will keep y'all in our prayers for peace, patience and unfrayed nerves in the process. :-)

I'm both happy for you and sad to see you go. But it sure seems like things are working out for your family just how they're meant to, and I sure wish you nothing but the best in your new life!

Oh Congrats! Your kids will be St. Joe Bears just like my hubby! Go Bears!

Jen said...

Congratulations on your decision! I'm sure it was hard, and while we'll all miss you, we wish you the best of luck! We'll have to get the boys together soon! I'm sure you'll have plenty of time when it's just you and the kids, so anytime you want some company (or another adult to chase them all around for a while) PLEASE give me a call!

Wow! Big decision!! Congrats and best wishes for the move!

Kelly and I want to know if you could move your house down to St. Louis so we can buy it? :-)
