We have been busy these past few weeks. We are moving to Dayton, Ohio in a couple of weeks. We had to find someone to rent our house before we could move. It was very surprising how quickly we rented our house. Our renters are moving in next week and we are going to move in with my parents for a couple of weeks before we make the big move. During those couple of weeks, Steve and I will be going out to Dayton to look at houses and get to know the area better. We get to leave our kiddos with my family for our trip. We have already found a house that we like. Steve saw it, I have only seen pictures, and we put an offer on it. We should find out in a couple of days if we got it.

On a sad note, we had to get rid of our dog Cesar. We will be staying in corporate housing when we first move out to Ohio and driving with Cesar, staying in hotels, living in temporary housing all would be HUGE headache. And we don't even think we can have him in the temporary housing. So we put up an ad to see if we could find him a loving family that would take really good care of him. Well this ad was also answered quickly. 15 minutes later we found someone who would be perfect for Cesar. He went home with them tonight and we are very sad and tears were shed for him. Poor Parker doesn't even know yet that his dog is gone. We didn't know how to break it to him. We will miss him, but we know he will be with a great family who will take really good care of him, probably better care than we would have even given him.
