We are Moving!
All that is changing! We are moving, all the way across the country to Washington DC. Why you may ask? Jason will be working for the Episcopal Diocese of Washington DC, his official title is the Missioner to Young Adults. You can read more about that here.
This decision didn't come easy, we love our South Park/North Park Community, love our kids schools, and most of all love being close to family. But with all of that said, we have always talked about going on an adventure, so this is our chance. We are excited that I won't need to work (as long as we are frugal), we will get to live in seasons, we will get to explore the East Coast and Jason will have a great opportunity to build his career and work with an amazing team.
At this point, we are trying to narrow down the neighborhoods we'd like to live in. Much of this search includes researching neighborhood school for our kids to attend. If you know of anyone with a rental, we'd love to talk!
Since we do not have a home lined up in DC we will probably be staying in temporary housing which will allow us the flexibility to explore on our own. What this also means is that we will be be homeschooling Matt and Paige during this transition. We are not looking at this option for the long term , more just a temporary solution until we are settled, and we know the kids won't have to move again.
We are renting out our home in San Diego, and have already found tenants. We are moving with the intention of settling into the city, but keeping our home in San Diego allows us to come back in the future if we decide.
So this starts our journey, and hopefully I will be disciplined enough to document it all.
