We're Moving!!!

You heard it correctly...the Jaeggmeyers are gettin' outta Dodge! The sun has set on our years in the condo, and after much deliberation, saving, and planning, Tony and I have found a place that is perfect for this next phase of our lives. Almost serendipitously, a frriend of mine from work announced that he was going to be renting his home. The location was perfect--Granada Hills, which is as close to the Santa Clarita Valley without actually being IN the SCV--, the price was right, and the size was great (3/2.5 PLUS a pool/spa...yippee!). We jumped at the opportunity, and we'll be moving in first weekend in June.

Our current home, not surprisingly, is a total disaster and life is a little bit chaotic right now. Being that this is the end of the school year, I am also frantically trying to tie up loose ends here as well. On top of which, I am also trying to pack up my classroom for the big move to the new campus (for those of you who don't know, I am moving to a brand new campus this coming fall. I am a member of a pilot school design team and will be teaching history at the new school. Exciting stuff! More on that later). Thankfully, Tony is almost finished with his first semester back at school, so he will likely get the lion's share of the final packing and unpacking for the move. Lucky for me, he's amazing and is just as excited as I am about the big move.

To tide everyone over until I update again (and we all know how often that is!), here's a shot of Sophie helping me move...

~To be clear, she's reading books to her mimi (blanket) and the bucket. Everytime I pack a box, however, she insists on sitting in this one. Cute.~
