Leaving Utah!

So after almost 3 years together here in Provo, we're finally moving on! Paul accepted a job with Monsanto in St. Louis, Missouri, and we're both really excited about it. Benjamin has no idea what he's in for, but he may just have suspected something when we dismantled his crib in front of him and showed him our totally vacant apartment after the movers had gotten everything out. He really liked the moving truck, and especially walking up and down the ramp about 100 times. It was pretty funny to see our stuff in the enormous truck, filling up MAYBE a quarter of it.
So this is our house! With a fenced-in yard, and a garage and a washer and dryer and dishwasher and air-conditioning and everything! It's about 50 years old, so we've got a few fixer-upper projects ahead of us, but it's an adorable house. We're excited to be living on our own, but will miss all of our good friends and family. There's an open guest room for anyone going on a church-history trip, driving across the country, or perhaps even coming just to visit us.
