What are we doing?!?

So here's the story...
This past February, as I was on my way out the door to a primary Valentine's Day activity with Kalei, Jay stopped me and asked me to read an email we had just received from my sister Tana and brother in law Curtis. The email stated simply, "We want Jay to come and work with Curtis". So come to Miles City, Montana we did! In only a few short weeks we had our house and bags all packed and were ready to go.

My brother in law is an audiologist and has his own practice, Hearing Connection. He has been in the process of opening more offices in some of the neighboring towns to Miles City, and was needing someone to help run these other offices. So Jay has been studying full time for the past 4 months in preparation for the giant licensing exam that will allow him to start his training as a hearing aid dispenser. Once he is fully licensed, his main jobs will be to perform hearing tests and fit people for hearing aids who need them. We are so excited about this new opportunity and chapter in our lives, and I am so excited to be living right down the street from my sister and her family!

These past 4 months have been an absolute whirlwind of insanity! There has been so much to write about, but so little time to do it. But we have been enjoying the adventure immensely, and have the pictures to prove it. The pictures will speak louder than the words would anyway! So without further ado, I give you...

Miles City Adventure, Part 1 - Our Trip Here

Hooray for the end of the cleaning and painting!!

Goodbye hugs for Nana and Bubba

Both of these pictures are from a stop at the most bizarre gas station I have ever seen. But we had fun playing "jail" and getting to see a high-centered truck was pretty crazy!

Kalei LOVED the snow! It was her first time seeing it since she was still a baby and too young to care. Now she can't wait for winter! (I, on the other hand, am panicking... :P )

Our fun little house :) It is right across the street from the elementary school where Kalei will go next year, and also the school's playground. Yay!

Hopefully you have enjoyed this first installment of pictures! Stay tuned for part 2...tomorrow :)

I ditto what Brittany said! I have been wondering if you fell off the face of the planet but figured you must be super busy. I am so glad that you have had such a fun adventure and you're living by your sister and her family now. :) can't wait to hear more from you. :)
