Growing up a military brat, I learned what it took to move. All the preparation and all the stress that went into it. It seems like one of the worst things to do. Move. To uproot yourself from what you've know hoping that your roots will plant nicely in a new community. Some place you've never been before. Maybe you'll like it or maybe you won't. Who knows. But you certainly won't know if you don't move.
I for one hate moving because I seemed to move a lot growing up. Living in different houses, going to different schools. Making new friends, letting go and saying goodbye to others. It was hard. Just when you think you've made a friend for live. BOOM. Moving again.
But Elizabeth and I are moving. Currently we are looking at Tennessee, the Nashville or Chattanooga areas. They are nice, family friendly cities with thriving communities. Why not we said. But with the costs of traveling from all the way out in Wyoming to Tennessee just to look at homes; we have realized that is going to be expensive and we need to start looking at options to get us closer. Save money where we can because we will need it.
Thankfully because of my military stint, I am eligible for VA Loans which means that moving will be easier. But first we have to be closer. Luckily her parents live in South Carolina. Not too far from Tennessee; so for the purpose of finding and buying a home, we are moving from my parents house where we currently are, to her parents house. This move gives us the ability to explore the areas we want to move and give us a better feeling on the exact communities we would like to look for homes in.
We are excited and nervous at the same time as this move makes it so we won't be able to afford the second ultrasound. The ultrasound I talked about in a previous post. We understand though that this sacrifice is worth it in the end. We will still be trying to do our gender ultrasound in December; so if all goes well, on the 3rd of October we are moving.
I ordered new tires for my car to be put on the day before we leave. That way we leave with good tires for the trip there. I'm pretty excite to move, sad to leave my parents and siblings; but all in all excited for what the future holds.
I'll try to take pictures and post pictures after we move as well, so be on the lookout. I'll probably post them to a new section of the site called "Memories."
