Are we excited? YES! Will it be wonderful to be closer to family? YES! Is it going to be hard to leave Iowa City? Extremely! This is where we have made our home for the past 7 years, and where our first home together was, the birth of our children, and so many other memories we will have forever. We have been blessed with friendships that can't justly be described and the main reason we are preparing ourselves emotionally for this change. Fortunately, these friendships are ones we can continue to maintain long-distance, but this will still be difficult.
We feel God leading the way and are looking forward to seeing His plan revealed. I (Becky) will be working part time, most likely in the NICU at Altru, and am looking forward to more days home with my boys! We will keep you updated as the big move draws closer, but thank you for praying for us and please continue to pray that we will listen for God's wisdom and plan in a job for myself, daycare, and housing.
