Burgess Family of three...for now

A look into what we ordinarily do...sometimes not that ordinary.

It's official!!

Research shows that moving is one of the most stressful events in a person's life......well Clint and I can attest to that....we've done plenty of moving and for the most part not been thrilled about it....however we are pretty excited about this one.

We have officially bought a house!!!

We have done a lot of looking, bidding, we have been faced with A LOT of let downs....buying a house was harder than we thought. But we realize that there was something the Lord was waiting on us for. We finally had our patience tested enough and we are going to be the proud owners of a house!!!

It's a super cute 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1700 sf house in Mesa!! It doesn't have a garage so Clint already has his work cut out for him....he wants to enclose the carport so bad.

The decision to buy a house came after we felt that we shouldn't move to Tucson for school. So a lot of changes have taken place in our plans. Clint has switched to nursing and is going to try for the ASU program. He has to do a few more classes for that program, but the good thing is that his job is paying for them and he can do them online. I am going to continue to work full time....(so if you want to save money on your insurance give me a call!) We are excited to finally be at a point where we feel like we can throw down some roots. We are so sad to be leaving our ward.....really sad! We loved our callings, the members, the bishopric, and everything about it there!! We felt so at home! It will be hard to adjust to a new one.
