The End of and Era

My youngest sister was telling me a story a month or so ago. She's in college and moved at the end of the term (as college kids do) and my mom asked for her address for her address book. Apparently my mom told her, "I'm writing that with pencil… Kim and Cameron are in pencil too."

Well guys, we did it. Well, Cam did it and the rest of us made it (or as we like to say "made it happy" which can be much more difficult than the nuance implies). He has a job starting next month. So although I've got all our stuff to get packed up (again) in the next couple days… It looks like we may be settling.

 When we tell people they always say, "you must be so excited to be settled somewhere." But to be honest I'm feeling a little bittersweet about it. Yes, it will be nice to have long-term friends and maybe even a regular babysitter, but I think i'm going to miss the change of pace and the impossibility of getting tired of our surroundings.

 Cam has already promised me many trips to cool adventures since we won't be able to move next door to them, and hopefully that will expand our horizons to places that we wouldn't want to stay more than a week ;)

Before we leave we want to give one last shout-out to our Seattle-area city of Issaquah that we've absolutely LOVED.

Goodbye Seattle!
