In my excitement, I guess it wasn't clear--oops. We are moving to Boise, Idaho, not DC. Mike will just have to go to training in DC because he works for the federal government and that's where they do most trainings. Sorry for the confusion!
And I just have to say thanks to everyone who is showing their support, especially those for whom this is really not good news. I keep going back and forth from excited to tears. I have so many wonderful friends here in the high desert and I hope you all know how much I am going to miss you. I have been brought to tears so many times by your emails and calls. Also, to all of my family who lives in CA--it its so hard to leave everyone. It really was a hard decision for us, but I know in my heart that it is the right one for our family. I told Mike that the one must have is an extra room for visitors--hopefully we'll have lots :)
Anyway, to all of those who have shown their support:
