OKC Farewell

Where to begin… I have accepted a new position in Coffeyville, Kansas. 

Four years ago we packed up everything and moved our little family from KC (Kristi and I had lived in the Lawrence/KC area since we were married) to OKC. Not knowing what to expect, we moved to a new state with a toddler and 4 month old. What we were met with was a great city with so many great memories and firsts…

Noah’s 1st birthday

First day of school for both of our sons

First T-ball game

First church group – Faithmates

First swimming lessons

Family cruise to Alaska

Kristi winning best in show at the state fair

My first mission trip to the Dominican Republic

Extended family vacations to Colorado and Texas

First KCBS BBQ contest in Chandler, OK

First (and second) time volunteering with Habitat for Humanity

Kristi and I traveling to Europe for the first time

And so many more…

But what we will miss the most is you!  We have made great friends and been so fortunate that you have included us in your lives. OKC and you will hold a special place in our hearts. 

While Edmond has become home, we are ready to move close to family.  Kristi and I had been talking about wanting our children in a smaller school district and buying a house with more land.  So when this opportunity came up, it felt right.

For all my BBQ friends, I will probably miss you this Spring but hope to see you at contests in the summer and fall. 

Till next time,

The Oklahoma Jayhawk

(I’ll probably keep the name)
