(Here's a link to Greg's take on this same subject)

It's been almost 4 years since we packed up and left our beloved Portland to live in a place I had never even visited. Yep, almost 4 years since we moved to Arkansas to take a job at John Brown University. My mind reels when I try to think of a way to sum up what it's been like to move across the country and live here. And while there are so many things that I could say about our time here (and probably will say in future posts), right now all I want to say is that our time here is drawing to an end. Greg has told his boss that he is not planning on coming back next year, and they are in the process of interviewing other people to take over his position. We don't know where we will end up come this summer. But the one thing we do know is that it is time for us to live closer to our family. We want our kids to grow up closer to their Grandparents (and Aunt and Uncle). We want to see our family more than twice a year. Greg is looking for a job (preferably in Student Development) somewhere in the Northwest. We would love to live in Portland again, but we know that we may end up somewhere else. There are a lot of things up in the air for us. Please pray for us. Pray for wisdom, and pray for a job! Thanks.
