It was a gorgeous day today here in Moscow. Garrett had to work, but got off at 2, so we decided to go to the campus's Botanical Gardens. It was so pretty. We walked around for an hour and then came home for dinner. I made cheeseburgers and corn on the cob. Yes, that is right, corn on the cob! I was so excited when I saw in the grocery store. It is one of my summer and fall time favorites!
I think we are about to watch a movie and then will call it a night. Tomorrow Garrett has off, so we are going to try a church in Pullman, WA (7 minutes away) and then we are going to go up to Spokane to visit. It is only 1.5 hours from here.
We have taken some photos, but can't find our battery charger, and our battery is too low to load the pics on the computer. That means I have to buy a new one and then I can take more pics and post them for you!
Well, that's all for now.
Miss you all- so much. :)

We Are HERE!

Well, we made the 5.5 hour drive up to Moscow in one piece and now we are in our new apartment!
We had such a busy past 4 days that the time has just flown by! I still have a lot of unpacking left to do. I hope that within the next 2 days I will have this place looking and feeling a bit like home.
I am so mixed with feelings right now. I am excited for this big step in our lives and how this move will effect our future, but I am also very sad to be away from all my family and friends.
I really am praying that God will provide us with a good church and friends while we are up here. I also am praying that I can find a good job quickly.
Our apartment is so roomy compared to what we were living in before! I actually have counter space and a double sink! Oh, and an actual bathtub! Woohoo! haha.
I will post pictures soon, once I get everything looking how I like it. :)
Thanks to everyone for all the thoughts and prayers for us. We love and miss you!

Moving Stress

I can't believe how quickly the time is passing. We are leaving for Moscow this Monday! Only 4 more days living in my beloved Boise. :(
I must admit that I starting to stress a bit with all there is to do.
Tomorrow is both Garrett's and my last day of work. Weird.
I just got done having a "goodbye lunch" with my dad. Sad.
Still left to do:
1. Pack
2. Pack
3. Pack
We also have to pick up the U-Haul, load it, clean the house, load the church's furniture back into the house that they had before we moved in, dinner with friends and two different dinners with family.
I am trying not to worry and trying not to be sad yet, but I am. So, I am praying that God would calm my nerves and help me to be excited for this great step in our future!
