Portland, Ho!
So Jeff was offered the Clackamas position, and we will be moving in one month so he can begin work July 9th. Now all the wheels are turning and we begin the mental and physical move into the next chapter. We are so thankful for some friends who have offered half of their duplex for us to live in until we are able to buy a house. This makes everything so much easier and less stressful! Speaking of houses, there is one I have had my eye on for the past month, if you want to check it out, go to RMLS.com, then select the number search, then enter 7032867 to have a look. Pretty fun to start dreaming a little. Anyway, our internet has been down at home for the past couple of days, but I am at the library today to give the update. Thank you for your prayers for these decisions. The whole job search process has been an extremely positive experience for Jeff. He was actually offered three of the four positions he interviewed for, and even the one that turned him down really wants to keep contact with him as a networking resource-- what a confidence booster! We could definitely use your continued prayers as we pack up, bid our goodbyes and try to resettle, all in such a short amount of time!

Great conclusion to the job search! Nice that Jeff could find out he is so much in demand. Walked through the house your are tracking on 72nd St. (Maybe 'spun through' would be more accurate!) Cool fireplace and window in the living room. (It looked like a bay window, but I couldn't tell for sure because the angles changed as it rotated.) The leaded glass cabinet in the dining area looked nice too. Even though remodeled the house has a old classy look, one of the things you and Jeff liked about the S. Pas. apt. Let us know what else you wind up looking at.

Hey Ariana, wow! I'm so excited for you guys but not excited to have you leave!! It has been so great to have you, Jeff and Amelia here. You will be VERY missed!
That house is way too cute. It has so much personality and such a great price. Maybe that will be your new home?
See you tomorrow!
