I owe you.

explanations. clarifications. details.

first off: "beef and eggs" is a smashing [junky!] t-shirt that my beloved insists on wearing all together too often. we were going to a dinner with the new colleagues and I assumed we should dress up. or at least look nice. long story short: I painted my toenails (meaning I got alllll ready) and he wore beef and eggs. nice.

ok now back to the whole we are moving to Utah thing!

Andrew was offered a position at U.V.U. (Utah Valley University) It was offered to us and seriously we had our house on the market less than a week later. We left for Utah 2 weeks later. We left all our belongings there... in hopes to help our cute house sell a little faster in this d_r_a_b market. It broke our hearts to leave our house and our SD friends behind.

On to Utah: YES WE ARE HOME!!! ... a deal 7 years in the making! ...

We are *roughing* it here... we only brought what we could fit in our 2 cars. (that's not much.) We found a cute rental in *UTAH VALLEY SOMEWHERE * (don't want too many specifics on here -- ya know) that will do us just fine until we find a house to buy. Ty and Hai started school and are loving it. Our house sold last week (WHAT A HUGE MAJOR BLESSING and RELIEF!) so Andrew and his Dad are in SD right now getting all our stuff.

What am I forgetting to tell you all? I am sure a lot :)

And now: the pictures....

couldn't leave SD without stopping at Mt. Rushmore!
... it was awesome.  you must ... go ... see ....

so happy to be back in Utah!

the cousins meet for the first time
first day of second grade

proof that we are roughing it...
first day of Kindergarten

so cute that they found each other after school and were holding hands...

and second day of Kindergarten (this is the outfit mom wanted on the first day... wasn't worth the battle though :)

the end.

I painted my toenails and you are wearing "beef and eggs"?!?!

I don't think so!

I know I know I know... I have a lot of catching up to do. just had to let you all know that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. unless the earth is South Dak. and in that case I have.

Utah is lovely. it's great to be home.

more details and pictures later. soon. I hope.
