Thanks! I'm missing it too! Well..............Michael made it to the second phase for a job in Tampa, FL.........and if he gets it, we'll be going all the time! We're REALLY praying that he gets that job (not because of Disney--the church sounds amazing and we would love to be a part of their ministry--but Disney would be a great bonus)! But if he doesn't get that job, then who knows. It probably won't be for years and years.

Oh--and I just saw that you have a new TR! I'm going over to check it out now!

Thank you so much!! I appreciate it! We feel like this would be the perfect time to move far away because we don't have any kids yet, and our parents are all getting close to retirement--7 years for my dad and a little more for his--so they can come visit a lot when we do have kids. Adventure is always good! Do you know where yall would like to move? We're really up for anything! WOO-HOO!! Have SO much fun at Disney World!

OH my goodness! Best recap I have ever read I love all of the things that you posted. Kona looks AH-maZING! I read your "wish we would have" list. You MUST see the Jammin Jungle parade! It is one of the best ones in WDW for sure. The music is amazing. Also, taking a train in MK is so much fun! They have small little hidden details (like an Indian tribe spot) that you can't see from the parks. So cool!

I have to say, we never make it to Tom Sawyers or Storytime with Belle either! Two things I always wanted to do. They are replacing Storytime with the new Tangled characters starting in October. I hope they bring Belle back after, though!

LOVE LOVE LOVE your TRs. When is the next trip??

Aw, thanks so much, Katie! I'm glad you liked it! It was fun to look over all of our photos and notes again. You REALLY need to eat at Kona someday. It's incredible. We didn't want to spend so much time watching parades this past trip, but I definitely want to see them next time!

Really? I hope they bring Belle back someday too. She's my absolute favorite! Tangled looks really cute, though!

Thank you! I have absolutely no idea when our next trip will be. It depends on where we end up moving. We're still "in the running" for two jobs in FL, so if that's the case, we'll be going all the time! And Michael told me last night that we might be able to go back to Disney World--or Disneyland, which would probably be my vote since I've never been to CA--sooner than we were planning! So maybe in a few years. I'll for sure let you know when we do, though! Thanks so much for reading along. I've loved getting to know you via the boards!

Just wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed your tr. I have read thru the entire thing, but just been a 'lurker'. I know you had a ball and reading all these tr's makes me soooo ready to go back. I have a six and an almost-two-year old, so we are planning on going back in about a year. We went when my daughter was 3 1/2 and it was great. Neither of my kids have been good travelers, so that is why we are waiting on Langston to get a little bigger. I am def. interested in renting points next time so we can stay in a deluxe. We stayed at Pop last time and it was fine, but my husband is dying to stay at AKL. (I say dying, but really he just commented he wanted to stay there. I made it my mission then to fulfill his dream. haha. I know he gives my every wish that much attention!) I would love to follow along with your blog or facebook page or whatever and see what happens with ya'll. I don't mean to sound 'stalkerish' but it seems like we have a lot in common, so I am interested to see where life takes you. Good luck with the job search, I know the Lord will lead you just where you need to be!

Aw, thank you so much for reading along and for your sweet comments! We did have an absolute ball! We loved every minute of it and can't wait to go back someday. 3 1/2 sounds like a great age for Disney World! I'm sure it'll be amazing when you all go back. You HAVE TO rent points!! We absolutely loved it, and I don't think we'll go to Disney any other way. It's an amazing deal, and we loved being at the AKL. I don't really keep up with fb at all, but I would love for you to follow my blog! It's http://ourfamilye.wordpress.com/ I update it pretty regularly. I wrote about our San Antonio vacation and pretty much anything that comes to mind. I'm anxious to know where we're moving so I can start blogging about that too. We don't want to tell our youth until we know where we're going--just so it's not even more tough by being drug out. Thank you! We're excited to see where that ends up being. Right now, it's pretty much been narrowed to a church in Beaumont, TX and one in St Johns (by Jacksonville), FL. We should have an answer by the end of next week. Thank you again for reading, and hopefully I'll see you over at my blog!

Life Update: We're Moving!!

Hi Everyone!

Even though my trip is over, I wanted to give you this life update. We're moving!!!

Michael and I went to Beaumont, TX this past weekend/week to have our final interview at a church and we were offered the jobs!! Michael will be the full-time youth minister, and I'll be his assistant! We're so excited that we'll be able to work together and I'll actually get paid for the things I already help him with now. And I'll be able to help a lot more since I won't have another job. And a big bonus is that I'll be able to use my degree and actually get paid to do what I'm passionate about! Everyone at the church is super nice too. We really feel like we fit in well there.

We've already found an apartment, and our lease officially starts Sept 17th (this month's rent was free because they're running a special in Sept, so we decided to take advantage of it) but we're planning on not moving until October 1st or so. Everything is just falling into place. Oh--and the pastor told us that whenever we have a baby, I can stay home and just work from the house since it's part-time. This is a HUGE blessing for us because we've always wanted me to be able to stay home when we have kids (none on the way, btw).

So that's a little life update for us! Thanks so much for your well-wishes, thoughts, and/or prayers!! Yall are so great!

And I'd love for you to stop by our blog sometime! I try to update it regularly (these past few weeks have been not as frequent because of my back getting messed up again and then us trying to figure out all this job stuff). It has everything from life news to recipes to travel to TV shows. Here's the link in case you're interested: http://ourfamilye.wordpress.com/

Oh--and please don't mention the move on FB or the blog until we announce it there. We're waiting until next Wednesday to tell our youth students, and I don't want them stumbling upon the news sooner. Thanks!


Thank you again for reading this TR and for letting me share about our trip with you. I'm so thankful for the friendships that have been made with you all!

--Staci



PS. If I'm reading your TR/PTR, sooooo sorry I'm so behind! It's been crazy lately! But I'll try to catch up asap!
