We're on our way ....

Soon we will be seeing these sights every day ... Ryan will be working here ... he is thrilled and I am happy for him - he has worked hard and tirelessly and it got him here ... not sure how that happened!
We are heading to DC for the next several years. We are excited, nervous, and sad for the people we will miss and leave behind. It all seems surreal still, of course with each box I pack it becomes more of a reality. Everyone we have talked to has said, "I LOVE DC!" So for all of you - please come visit, stay with us, explore with us - we'd love to see you.
If you've been here please give me some suggestions on places we MUST visit!

What?? Now I feel like we haven't taken advantage of you being so close... uggh! I'm sure going to miss you guys, but I would love to take you up on a visit! Phil and I went last summer and absolutely loved every minute there. Our favorite was the Smithsonian Museums, and you'll definitely need to take the boys to Dulles to see the National Air and Space Museum, the Metro was so nice to get around on. My cousin works @ the Pentagon, so if you want a personal tour, let me know and I'll hook you up ;) Do you have time to do lunch before you leave?? Let's get Koe and Becky and get together before you're that much further away... missing you already.

I know I never see you but I like knowing that you are here.:) I'll miss you but am so excited for your new adventure. You're going to love it. I have only been once but I LOVED it. I could spend my entire life just in the Smithsonian Art Museum. Glad you'll be there to keep Washington in check.

We're going to miss you guys! Hopefully we can come visit. I've only been to DC once, but I thought it was a really cool place, it will be very educational for your kids!

Hey Kara! I've been wondering if you guys were going to be moving since Mike got elected. How exciting and like you said scarey! But if anyone can handle it, I'm sure it is you! So do you know where you will live yet? A suburb or in the city? And it does stink to move right in the middle of the holidays! But I'm sure it will be great! Best Wishes to you and your fam!

I am so excited for you!!! I am certain your family will love the Dc area. i know you will make fast friends but here's some info on my family there. So...
If you happen through McClain, Virginia (sp?) look up my uncle and his fam. Judge Stephen Swift. They are a fantastic family and You'd love my cousin Stephanie. She's in Maryland just on the other side of DC.
Your family will be missed!!!!
