Our new house









We moved from St. Margrethen to Gams, Switzerland. The whole move was a lot of work, but well worth it in the end. We are much closer to the girls' school, Kent's work, the gym, and our friends, the Jacksons (who live two houses away)! Our favorite part of the move has been the amazing views out all of our windows. We are up on one side of the mountain looking across to another. It doesn't hurt that it only takes seven minutes to drive to the ski resort, too...

Kent moved all of our house with the help of some friends and missionaries. Turns out that the day they moved in November was the only blizzard we have had yet! What troopers! My mom came back here after our vacation to the states for Christmas and helped us unpack and set up the house. I really am lucky to have one of the hardest working mothers in the world! Thanks, mom, Kent, and all our friends for helping us get settled.
