We made it to Colorado!

We are another step closer to getting to Florida! We have had a busy few weeks since I last posted, so here's a quick update. We went to Florida For 5 days to look for a house. WE intended to buy a house while we were out there, but once we got there, we decided to rent for a year and keep looking for a house. We decided this for a couple of reasons. We wanted to be firm in what our budget will be and we want to test the area we picked a little before we purchase. We have rented an awesome 5 bedroom house, so we have plenty of room for friends and family to come and visit! Disney World is only a short drive!
When we got back to Jess' parents house, the kids were happy to see us! We played in MT Saturday, Cousin Hannah Beth Gray was blessed at church on Sunday and then we loaded up for the drive to CO on Monday. The kids did great in the car! I was really impressed with them. We made the trip in "before we had kids time!" The next day I went to the Dr with Summer and Matthew. Summer has lost one of her tubes that she got in her ear, and Matthew had really bad congestion due to allergies, we think. I had sinus problems as well as Bronchitis. I stayed in bed practically 2 1/2 days! That has never happened to me before! I am finally feeling better, but still have a really pretty cough. My kids are all taking turns with fevers, so we haven't yet begun to enjoy Colorado.
Jess did get to pick up his new Toyota Prius on Tuesday! He is having a great time learning all about it and challenging the fuel efficiency! He leaves on Monday to head to Florida. He starts work on January 28th and then we get the house on Feb. 1st. Hopefully Jess will have a great head start on the house by the time I get there!
