current blog status: on hold due to current dahle family status

current dahle family status: in transition.

official blog announcement: "ahem. may we have your attention please...We would like to announce that we are currently in the process of heading across the country to try our hand at being New Englanders"

the details:

who: All members of the dahle family.

what: We are moving.

where: Vermont, which is "somewhere close to the North Pole, but still in the United States of America" (as I overheard Ella explaining the move to a friend).

when: ASAP, exact timing TBA.

why: Jacob was offered (and accepted) a job with IBM's technology development team.

In the meantime: I did manage to finish our annual family slide show only a few days late.

Congrats on the change. I know what you mean about feeling in limbo. We're contemplating a shorter move (across town, we hope) into our own home and not knowing exactly where or when is driving me crazy!
Lorilee and Kimball's family lived in Vermont for several years. Sadly they moved away about a year ago or you'd be close by them! They really enjoyed it there. If you want any tips on surviving Vermont, you should talk to them! I know they'd be delighted.
Gorgeous slide show of course :)

With this change, you're going to have killer blogging material... I still remember being welcomed to our new ward in NE with a pineapple. It's a tradition from the sailors I guess? Plus, all the B & B in Maine decorate with pineapple borders, so it goes?

Loved that area. Too much to see and do, and too little time there for us! Wishing it's a somewhat smooth transition! Your family will be missed.

I can honestly say that I have been waiting for this. I almost emailed you the other day to ask when it would be posted! It was great fun to watch. We wish you the best on your move but, we will miss you!

Ashlie said...

Congratulations on the moving news! We're living in Connecticut right now and we really love it here. Plus, the proximity to Boston, NY, etc makes it a great experience. I don't know how far away you'll be from us, probably somewhere around four hours, but if you need anything. . . we may be your closest family.
(your cuz) jenni.
