St. Johns, Arizona

I never thought I would say this but we are moving to St. Johns. Poor Ryan has been commuting two hours to work each day. He is in a carpool and only has to drive 1 day a week. So, Dallin and I are exciting to be closer to Ryan and to see more of him. I can't complain with his schedule right now. He works 4 tens and has Fridays off. He will start shift work in March or April and that will be a bear. He won't be able to carpool then. We decided to bite the bullet and move now. We love Snowflake and our ward which is making this move hard. But we feel good about this move. As Ryan says though, we are farther from civilization. We are moving to an even smaller town. We are now an hour from Showlow and almost 4 hours from family in the valley. But, as I told Ryan we are doing this for our family and this is where we need to be. We found a 3 bedroom house to rent so I am excited to have more room. This little apartment is getting really small but we love our rent. We just got back last night from a week with family. We are moving next Friday. So we have lots to do. I told Ryan I hope our life slows down and we don't have to make anymore big decisions for awhile. We have had to make enough of those this last year. We love you all and hope you had a great Thanksgiving. We sure did!!!

wow, what a big move for you guys! But it sounds like the right thing to do. And believe me, those few extra hours a day with your hubbie will really add up. I should know because I opted to live in Bagdad of all places to see my husband every day. It is well worth it!!! And, we even love Bagdad!!
Hey, our friend works at the SRP place in St. Johns, I wonder if your hubbie knows him. His name is Christian Pacheco. They live in Eagar, Az and do the commuting thing.
Well, good luck on the move. We send our best wishes.
