So some of you may be thinking Bremerton? Where is that? Well to answer that question, it is in western Washington, right across the Puget Sound from Seattle. Your next thought may be why Bremerton? Well... very exciting news for our family...Adam got a job! Woohoo! We thought there was a good chance of staying in our little basement apartment in Provo forever, hey we could probably fit 5 kids in a 500 sq ft. apartment right...WRONG. Contrary to what we thought, we will be leaving Provo.
Adam will be working for the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, yup the Navy. So cool. The funniest part of the whole thing is he didn't even apply there. Lucky us. I think the Lord really wants us to go there, because it just worked out way too easy. It turns out my Uncle who works for the Navy actually passed around Adam's resume and it got picked up by the Puget Sound Naval base, they liked what they saw, called him up, and within a few weeks flew him out there to interview. The interview went so well that within a week they gave Adam a job offer. What a wonderful blessing, especially in this unstable economic time. Well we felt pretty good about going to WA, especially since nothing else was looking very promising. So we accepted the offer and will be moving out there at the beginning of September.
Bremerton is 1 1/2 hours from where Adam grew up so he is really excited. He loves WA and is looking forward to raising our family there. As for me, after getting over the initial dissapointment of not going to sunny Arizona and living near my family, I am so slowly getting stoked! When I'm especially longing for AZ, I just look at houses in the Bremerton area and I immediately get excited. I can't believe in the near future, hopefully, we'll have a house of our own! woohoo, and we won't even have to water the lawn, that is one of the first things Adam said while trying to encourage me about Washington.
The area we'll be living in is beautiful and it will be quite the adventure. We will sure miss Provo and the BYU atmosphere, but we're ready to enter the "real" world. It has been such a wonderful beginning to our life together and we have made many memories and friends. We will miss our little basement apartment that we'll have lived in for 4 years! We can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for us in Bremerton WA. If anyone wants to come visit, we'll be there soon!
For any of you that have never been to WA this is some of the beautiful scenery of Bremerton. I mean beautiful if you like water, mountains, and green trees that is. jk...
