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)
