yes...it's true that I haven't updated my blog in nearly three months. for the record, I did try to update on March 3rd and gave a thorough and insightful post regarding my ending job at the elementary school in Wichita Falls. but my internet went out while typing and didn't save, which I didn't notice until I lost everything. in bitterness I haven't been back since. however, since then, we have moved states and can no longer call Texas home. we love Tucson so far, but everyone's detailed warnings about the rattlesnakes have got me...well...rattled and I pray to God that I will be the miraculous exception and never see one. we moved out of our house on base in Texas and went straight to Fort Myers to visit grandpa and grandma-Tyler had never been to their condo before and his 45 days off between assignments brought the perfect chance for some traveling. we enjoyed (as the pictures indicate) a trip to watch the twins at spring training (it's been a long time but this might be the year I get to see the twins play in both Ft Myers and Minneapolis), a couple beach trips, happy hour and golfing and spending time with my grandparents, who make great tour guides.
After flying back to Dallas, we drove to WF for the night to pick up Ada (who got one final sleepover with Maya) and be on our way West to Tucson. We arrived and spent two days looking at houses until we found one we fell in love with on a Friday. We signed the papers that next Monday, got our keys Tuesday right before the movers came with our belongings and left Thursday for 11 days to Montana and South Dakota. We spent Easter weekend skiing at Big Sky with family and then drove to Rapid City to spend a week there. Finally, we were back in Tucson on April 8th and have been getting to know the city a little better.
