A great career opportunity arose for Jon in the Portland area, and it did not take long for us to say "yes". The last month has been surreal as we plan, pack, and say our goodbyes. Jon and I have both been here since we were twelve. Our immediate families are here. I was fortunate to have taught at a great school since 2005. Plus, I had an amazing group of students this year that I will miss so much! I would have probably ended the year thinking, "This was the best group ever!" My mom insists we will hate it up there. "It rains all the time. You will never see the sun." Despite the criticisms to get us to stay, I am pretty confident that this is a change we will absolutely love.
So, the blogging hiatus continues!
