here we come

remember when we took a fabulous vacation to brasil and argentina two summers ago.

well folks, we are packing our bags and heading out for a hopefully equally as fabulous, yet significantly longer vacation to brasil. we have about a month until we move to south america. i still haven't wrapped my head around all this craziness, but ready or not, we're coming. trae graduates the first week in may and we leave the next week.

we're still not sure how long we will be living in brasil but as of right now we're thinking it will be 8 months to a year, depending on how the work goes and when trae decides to start grad school.
i have to keep telling myself that this experience is more for trae because it probably wouldn't be my first choice of residency but i am so ready for the challenge and know that we will have so much fun on our little adventure. what a blessing it will be to have trae's family down there...and what a party it will be when all of trae's siblings (minus matt) will be living there at the same time this summer.

i can't believe i thought that moving from provo to logan was going to be a challenge. that was a piece of cake. but like i said, change usually is for the best and i know that we will grow from this experience.

to look on the bright side, we are moving to the exact place where trae served his mission, he is going to love that.
to look on even the brighter side, we will literally be living on the beach for the next year, good thing little ave loves it!

now all i have to to is start packing, and cleaning, and moving, and shopping for a year round summer wardrobe, and saying goodbye to all our family and friends, and learning portuguese....

looks like we'll be ready to go in no time.

Good luck! I think moving cross-country will be tricky, but I think you have me beat. I'm sure you'll have great adventures and I love that the whole family will be there. It's all the benefits of an adventure, but with family built right in!
