Movin' Right Along

It's official - we are moving!
And we are moving quite a ways away!

Kyle was offered a job in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - which he accepted - and we are so excited!

He will be working for the Children's Mental Health division of the Department of Health and Welfare as a Clinician. 
This job came completely out of  the blue. Kyle had applied to a job for H&W here in Pocatello (online on the state website), which he didn't even get an interview for. But on the Friday, June 31 he got a call from the supervisor in Coeur d'Alene, saying he had read over his information from the website and wanted to interview him. Kyle had a phone interview that Monday, a video interview on Tuesday, and then was offered the job the next Monday. 

We are excited for this next little adventure in our lives!

It is crazy to think that we are moving somewhere that doesn't have a "timeline". Do you know what I mean? We were in Provo until we finished school. Then we were in Pocatello for two years until Kyle finished his graduate program. But you don't "finish" a job. We could be living in Coeur d'Alene for years and years! So crazy to think about.

A little about Coeur d'Alene. It is up in the panhandle of Idaho, and is about an 8 hour drive from Pocatello, putting it about 12 hours from Salt Lake and Utah counties. We were up there in January (read about that trip here) and thought it was so pretty, even though it was January and cold. According to Wikipedia the population is about 45,000. It's about 30 minutes east of Spokane, Washington, and is in the Pacific timezone. It is also apparently lower elevation, so hopefully doesn't get quite as cold, haha.
We are really excited to be able to explore the northwestern part of the states - Washington, Oregon, and maybe even take a few trips up to Canada!
(I am also excited that there is a Target....)

Again, we're excited! We are moving at the end of July, and Kyle will start on August 5th.
We are so excited and so grateful for this job. 
Feel free to come up and visit us anytime :)
