Change Is A Comin'

Ok, I admit it.  Having a kid makes life really busy really fast.  Blog posts have been severely lacking. I have tried (unsuccessfully) to get my wife to contribute every once in a while but she insists on using all of her creative juices to make crafts and clothes for Ady.  I think it takes all the humor and stamina she can muster just to put up with me every day.  But the winds of change have been blowing and here is what they have stirred up.

I will start work at an orthopedic company in Warsaw, IN on May 16th.  Didn't see it coming and I'm still not sure the full realization has actually hit me.  It means that we will be packing up the family, attempting to sell the house, and starting a new chapter of our lives in Northern Indiana.  I'm very excited about the new opportunity but it doesn't come without some trepidation.  The transition will be quick and it won't be easy but we know God will see us through. 

Leaving has brought on a whole host of emotion.  I didn't realize how attached I was to our house and how much I will miss the daily challenge of public accounting.  I'm sure I will be challenged in a corporate setting but it just won't be the same.  Now I will have to split time between Colts games and Bears games on Sunday afternoon and it won't be as easy to sell/use my season tickets or see a playoff game.  I'll also have to find a new slow pitch softball team.  Yes, I know all of those things are probably small potatoes but I'm the one writing so I get to say whatever I want.

In the end we are still very excited.  We will really miss all of our friends from church and Anderson but we know we have a great support system and can't wait to meet new friends up in Warsaw.  No matter how you slice it change is a comin' and we are going to see where it takes us.

Ady Update: She rolled over for the first time today.  Emily is nervous because that means mobility...but I'm pumped!
