The big news here is that Jeremy has accepted a job offer as a police officer in the Tri-Cities. We're not sure if it's ok to put the specific city on the internet. Departments sometimes have policies that limit what you can write online.
We move next Monday (July 2nd). It's going to be a super busy couple of weeks. Jeremy begins work on July 9th.
We managed to find a nice house to rent in West Pasco. While searching for houses to rent, we found it's really hard to find a nice house to rent! We didn't want to get an apartment if we didn't have to, and we got lucky finding this place.
More good news is that we don't have to sell our house right now. Some friends of ours are going to rent it from us. This is very good as we bought the house in 2006 so it is worth much less than what we paid for it. I guess we'll worry about selling when our friends no longer want to rent.
Jeremy is very much looking forward to his new job! He'll be working 10 hour, 40 minute days 5 days a week. Then, he'll get 4 days off in a row. One weekend a month will actually be 5 days off in a row. We know he'll be busy with work!
The kids and I are looking forward to exploring what there is to offer in the Tri-Cities! It looks like there are a lot of great parks and river activities. It might be too late to sign them up for swimming lessons, but that would be good. I've also been checking into preschools for Nathan for the fall. I've found a few that look promising so hopefully they'll have space for him!
The next 4 days are going to be full of packing, moving, and address changes. Should be crazy!
