Update 9/26/08

Hello everyone,
We are doing fine in Virginia! Our move here has gone smoothly. We arrived in Virginia on Monday, 9/8. We signed our closing papers on Wed. 9/10, the movers came on Thurs. 9/11, and our cars got delivered on Fri. 9/12, and then Dan started his new job on Mon. the 15th.

The first week of work, Dan drove to the Metro station (about 1/2 hour away) and then rode the Metro to work(there is a station right across the street). This week, he drove almost every day and the commute wasn't that much more. He has decided he will probably do a mix; mostly drive, but every once in awhile take the Metro.
He was given the honor of going to a Congressional meeting last Wed. having to do with FAA certification. He found it facinating to actually see what really happens behind the cameras of CSPAN!

I have been spending most of my time looking for furniture, calling utilities (we have some added services we require; pest control(the house has had termites in the past) and the house is wired with a security system. On top of that, we decided to get the cabinets and counter tops in the kitchen redone, so have had contractors out here. Other than that, I have been driving around and trying to find my way around.

Some of you may not know this, but, our house backs up to a state park and is all wooded. One of the extra blessings God has given us is that it is the home to ALOT of white tail deer, and every day, I look out the window and watch them either in the woods or in our neighbors yard. It is WONDERFUL!!! We have also had a woodchuck, a red fox, rabbits, and lots of birds keeping us company. God is so good!!

Keep in touch all of you! And remember, we would love to have visitors!!
