Moving Update

Well, we finally made it to Texas!  We are staying with the Embrys, who are friends of Ryan's parents.  They have a beautiful home with a casita they are graciously allowing us to occupy for the time being. 

We found a cute little house in downtown New Braunfels yesterday.  It's about 1/2 mile away from the Children's museum, the farmer's markets, and only about a mile from Landa Park.  The downtown area of NB is in high demand, so we were really fortunate to get into this house.  Especially since the flood from last week put 100 families out of their homes!  Our wonderful real estate agent, Carrie Evans, outdid herself following every lead--but as soon as we'd look at a house, it was leased!  The house we have is one that she found by chance.  When she called, she found out that the app on the house had been rejected just 5 MINUTES before she called!  It was meant to be!  ;-)

The house, unfortunately isn't available until the 1st, but we're hoping that we'll be able to get in earlier.  In the meantime, I'll be on the lookout for 1950s furniture.  ;-)

Karen! I am so happy that you made it to Texas. I have been out of commission for a few weeks and finally got a chance to pop over here and catch up on your life. =+)
Biology almost killed me - 12 papers, 4 labs, 9 test, and over 50DQ's all in 7 weeks. Wwhheeew! Now I am trying to enjoy a few weeks off before lighting the candle at both ends again.

Your new home sounds WONDERFUL. I am excited for ya'll. I am sure your children are chomping at the bit, ready to be in their own rooms, etc... and I am sure you and your husband are ready for all the boxes to be unpacked, the house be in some sort of order and to collapse on your couch as you sigh with relief. You will have to post pictures.

Be safe and enjoy all the wonderful things your new city seems to offer!
