Why We Left California

This is my man, Chris.  i totally respect him and think he is amazing in so many ways.  He's pretty much the reason we live where we do.  He is a unique blend of brains and wit.  When i met him in college i knew he was funny but didn't know till later exactly how smart he was.  

(See, when your first assignment in a college speech class is supposed to be a well planned out informative speech and the cute guy in class comes up with a last minute, "How to eat an invisible Twinkie" your initial response is laughter not thoughts of, "Wow, what a brain!") 

Ok, back to the point....  He is an impressive mixture of a math savvy structural engineer that really loves being around people.  We moved to Dubai when our kids were littles.  

After time in the Middle East we another made move to New Zealand.  (i don't think there could be two more polar opposite places.)

Now one of my kiddos is taller than me and they both have perfected the teenage eye roll.  They have more stamps in their passport than i did at age 25. 

   We have the incredible blessing of seeing parts of God's great Earth that i never would have imaged possible as a family 10 years ago.  

This blog is my take on our family adventures...

Navigating through the good, the bad and the unknown.  
By the grace of God.
