When we moved to Chandler, AZ over 7 years ago it was with the intention to put down roots. Having stayed there 7 years is the closest that we have ever come to accomplishing that task. However, we are now on the move again. I started a new job in Ogden, UT on May 1st. Wendy and the kids are still in Chandler as Colby will be attending EFY in Flagstaff and his Young Men's group will be hiking Havasupai in June as well. With any luck we'll all be together again in late June or early July.
The move brings us closer to our adult children Aubrey and Colin who are attending Utah State and BYU respectively. It also brings us closer to my brother in Salt Lake and my parents in Park City.
Most people shudder at the thought of a Phoenix summer. I have come to learn though that if my office and home are about 72 degrees, and my pool is 91 degrees, it doesn't really matter that it's 115 degrees outside. I'm hoping to survive the Utah winter but I am looking forward to being able to spend more time with my family in area.
We will miss the friends we have made in Arizona, but look forward to making new ones.
