For some unknown reason, Jason and I can never manage to make major life changes in what any normal person might consider a reasonable amount of time.  It's like everything we do ends up being this huge in-a-hurry deal.  Let's just say God doesn't give us much advance notice when He calls us to do something.

It all started when we met.  2 weeks after our first date, we began planning a wedding.  Since there's clearly no need for a long engagement, we were married 6 months after we got engaged.  6 months later, we found out I was pregnant.  Towards the end of my pregnancy, we decided Jason should go back to school (immediately, of course),  which meant moving when Micah was only 5 weeks old.  When we moved to our current house in 2003, it was b/c Jason was called to a church in July of that year and we had to move fairly quickly.  Jason actually signed a contract on our home before I ever had a chance to see it.  

Fast forward 5 years and here we are on the brink of another move, Jason going back to school (for his Masters this time), finding new jobs, selling a house, finding a house, and all the other stuff that happens when you relocate.  But the kicker is that this is not something we've been planning for the last 6 months or so.  That is SO not how we roll.  Oh no- this brilliant idea started all of 3 weeks ago.  That's right, my friends.  3 weeks ago, Jason had a conversation with a friend that set this whole plan in motion.  In 3 weeks' time (one of which we were out of town)  Jason applied to seminary, I applied for jobs in the area, Jason got accepted to seminary, I set up an interview for a job, and Jason has some job leads of his own.  All of this so we can bust-a-move in time for school to start in the fall.  Not fall 2009, which would be what a normal person might be considering.  Fall 2008.  As in, a few short weeks from now.  WEEKS!!!!  And with 3 children.  We must be out of our ever-lovin' minds.
