Texas here we come!

We closed on our house yesterday and today the packers are packing up all of our stuff! I can not believe this happened so fast, but am so thankful.

These next week is super crazy for us. We closed yesterday, pack today and tomorrow, Sunday is an off day. Monday they load our goodies on the big rig and Griffin and I leave, Tuesday the cleaning lady scrubs our home down for the new owners and G and I arrive at Gillys. Wednesday Ryan and Ansley leave and Griffin and I sign our apartment lease and go to preschool orientation. Thursday our stuff arrives at the apartment and R and A arrive too. Friday is meet the teacher and dance class and Saturday tball practice!

 So, if we are MIA for awhile, this is why!

We are saying our goodbyes to our incredible friends that we have made over these last three years. It is bittersweet to leave.

Tonight while Ryan was reading Griffin some poems out of my old Shell Silversteen book, this fell out....
This is a 20 year old ticket stub from the Braves Spring Training from West Palm Beach, FL.  My Nanny and Pa took me when I was 9 years old.  It was such a fun time to spend with my grandparents.  They are such an important part of my life then and now. 

I love you Nanny and Pa!!  Thank you for all you have done and continue to do.

We took all the stuff off our walls for the move.  Looks bare! 

The kids like the bare fireplace :)

Big News!

Big news from the Beals Family.....we are moving to TEXAS!!  

Ryan has been given an awesome opportunity to relocate to Dallas, TX with his company.  Dallas is a huge roofing market!  He will not travel as much which is a huge plus! 

To recap...we found out a month ago that the move was "official."  We put our house on the market and literally had someone come look at it two hours later.  Those people MADE AN OFFER that evening (a good one too).  So, we are past the inspection, appraisal and all that worrisome stuff.  We close on August 23rd! 

I have been out to Dallas twice looking for homes.  Unfortunately, we didn't really find the "one." We are going to rent an apartment for 3 months and pray something turns up.  It will be much easier to house hunt in the same state.  We found an area that we like, just north of DFW.  Our apartment is very close to there. 

Griffin is already enrolled in a preschool and soon to be enrolled in Tball and Dance for Ansley! 

It is with mixed emotions that we leave NM.  I have truly made some awesome friends here and will be so sad to leave.  But, they have already committed to visit (likewise for me). 

I look forward to our next adventure as Texans!  I will keep you posted!!
