Brett and I managed to sit down and have a planning meeting on the couch to help us map out what the next month of change will look like. We're moving back to Springfield, MO very soon as this chapter of life with the Army comes to a close and another chapter begins to unfold. It's been such a long way off until this week and suddenly it feels like the days are speeding past me and the lists of things to finish before we leave only grow.
Despite feeling overwhelmed I'm hoping we can enjoy this transition as we venture back to familiar territory and to friends that are as excited for our return as we are. We'll be settling in right before the holidays start needing our extra special attention and will be celebrating a certain five-year-old (once in both towns).
Today we finally found a rental that we're really excited about, thanks in part to Elsie and Jeremy, who took a tour for us and sent us photos and notes on more than one occasion. It's a Victorian within walking distance to downtown and has almost everything I was hoping for to keep us cozy until we find a home to make our own. More about that soon but not before I call my mom and fill her in first.
In the meantime I'm going to take a cue from Ruby and have a little fun with things as we enjoy our friends and favorite places in Colorado Springs one last time. We are taking with us so many lessons and memories in the time we've spent 6,000 ft in the sky.
