Are you ready?

**Already read this post?  See the addition at the end!**

Be prepared for a long blog post, because I'm going to attempt to catch you up to what's been going on! 

Oh goodness...how far do I go back? Ummm...we moved out of our house about a week after this post. Maggie & I stayed with the Howers for a week, while my parents and Josh lived in the church travel trailer.  During our stay at the Howers, Alyssa, Linnea, Maggie & I decided to have a girls night and went to see Cinderella at our local playhouse.  Can you believe that it was the first time I had even been to our playhouse after living there my whole life??  I can't either...oh well!  The play was great and we had alot of fun spending that time together!  I hope to start going to the local playhouse here!

Once Josh got into an apartment, Maggie and I moved to the travel trailer for a few days at least.  That week was busy getting ready for Washington DC, as we were leaving that Friday night.  It was also my last week of work...it was very bittersweet.  I'm so blessed to have been able to work/minister at the church for the past 5 years with a great staff team!  I couldn't have asked for a better job!  They threw a farewell luncheon on Friday and got me a really neat blanket with a map of Whidbey Island on it, as well as some delicious chocolates!

On the day we left for DC a certain someone celebrated a birthday.

We were in Washington DC for a week.  A very busy one at that!  Once we got there we pretty much hit the ground running!  We were busy morning to night with lectures and sightseeing.  Lectures included: How World Views are Formed, Humanism in Public Education, Islam, Martyrdom, etc.  We were able to visit: Monuments & Memorials, Smithsonian Museum, Holocaust Museum, USS Barry, Macedonian Embassy, night tour of the Capitol!, etc. We were also able to meet several different people from different organizations such as Concerned Women of America, Focus on the Family, etc and we also had the opportunity to lobby with Senator Cantwell!  It was an awesome week.  I learned alot and was really encouraged to get more involved in politics and becoming aware of what's going on in the world.  Along with the pictures I'll post, here are links to more pictures as well videos!


Are you still with me??  It wasn't as long as I was thinking it would be, but that's pretty much what's been going on leading up to the move.  Come back tomorrow and I'll have more on that!

**Addition** We made it in the paper!  Here's the link.
