Beginnings and Endings

We leave Pullman on Monday, moving truck packed, cars loaded, waving goodbye behind us. It's hard to imagine taht we've lived in this house a whole year, and yet time has definitely passed. We are all feeling glad to be at the end of Aaron's doctoral program of the beginning. It's a gift that this season has finally come. But we are sad to leave dear friends here in Pullman, people we who become very important in our lives.

Last night I went back and looked at pictures of Maya and Sam when we moved into this house--And I can't believe how much they have both grown in the past year.

Here they are in August, just after we moved to Pullman. Maya was three and Samuel was just a few weeks old.

Now they are four and one--growing and changing every day. When I see the difference in their pictures, I am convinced that a full year has passed.

We have fun adventures ahead of us, but we will miss the dear friends we leave behind. This is a special place, and we are grateful for the opportunity to live in Pullman this year.
