Wednesday was one of the longest days of our lives…literally-a 32 hour day! We were greeted in Seattle by friendly customs agents and Mandy’s family as we packed our year long possessions into the car and headed down to Tacoma. Back to T-town…I never knew how good the roads were here, how well-kept the sidewalks are, how clean the streets are and how nice it would feel to taste a root beer float!

We are yet to settle in anywhere yet, but are inching out way in that direction. We do have new phones, so if you want to give us a jingle, we’d love to hear from you.

Joel’s Phone #: (253) 302-1098

Mandy’s Phone #: (253) 302-2969

It looks like we are going to head up to the mountains for a few days to resituate our minds as we plunge into this transition. I can’t tell you how thankful we are for your continued support along the way.

It was an amazing year…not necessarily a “fun” year at all times, but a year that we will never forget. New perspectives, newfound gratitude and newfound relationships. We may be thousands of miles away, but these things withstand great distances. It is our continued hope that they will also withstand the tests of time and the American pace of life.
