So Long, Farewell..

So its come to that, my last post officially living in Saskatoon. As of today we have 2 days left until we pack up for good. My parents are coming from Alberta with a big covered trailer on Friday and then after that we will be gone from Saskatoon and on to Barnwell. Yup, soon we'll be calling Barnwell our home. Jeremy will be working in Taber and Lethbridge at 2 practises owned by the same dentist. So its a good in between place, plus it's my hometown and well as much as we both weren't set on living there, we know its where were supposed to be and we are really thrilled now!! It will be so fun to have my mom and dad just around the corner and also 2 of my brothers live there too. Elias will have his cousin Joel to play with all the time and i will have a sweet babysitter whenever i need her, my neice Saige who will be 12 soon!
Amid all the boxes, and cleaning we've been able to enjoy a little of having Jeremy FINALLY DONE school forever!! We went out to celebrate on the weekend with friends at "John's Steakhouse" and seriously had the best steak of my life. We also went out for our last walk by the river yesterday.. we will
miss those walks.
Night out on the town to celebrate both being done school and Dyck's b-day.
Too bad Amy had to leave early.
our last stroll by the river.  

As much as i am excited to move onto this next phase in our lives.. I will be sad to go, more sad i think when i am settled and looking back. I will miss so many of you that have been such good friends.. hopefully most of you i will see often enough. And i will miss this city a lot and this home, even if its a 753 sq foot, 2 brd condo with 3 flights of stairs and a balcony we call our "yard"haha. Its the home we have so many memories in, the home we brought both our babies from the hospital too, the home of birthdays shared and the home that we had "ups and downs" going through school in. I am grateful to this home, but i am also VERY grateful to be moving on and UP from this.

this garage literally saved us, storage wise and from the freezing COLD!
So Farewell Saskatoon, you have been good to us!! I better get back to packing...
Nixon loves the boxes and sat on this one for a good 20min without moving.. it was pretty funny. We would leave the room and come back and he would just be sitting so cute doing nothing.

This post makes me miss Saskatoon so much! It's such a great city. How lucky though that you get to live so close to home. We will have to come by for a visit sometime on our way to Taber. Hope all goes well with the move.

Nice post!! So many things you'll miss, I'm sure, but so many things to look forward to too!! We'll all miss you guys so much! Thanks for all you guys have done for our little family since we moved here!

That sure made me miss Saskatoon too! It's a special place!
I am excited to hear Barnwell will be your new home! Who knows....maybe we will end up in that area in the next few years. I think Anni and Nixon (or Elias) might have to hook up....hehe
Good luck with the move and congratulations on the big accomplishment for you guys of finishing dental school!

Awe, have fun in AB! We didn't know each other THAT well, but you were a great VT! Good luck!

PS- Say HI to my cousin Lindsey, she lives in Barnwell and I'm pretty sure she's married to a cousin of yours! Maybe?? (Brant Hansen)

this makes me sad and of course this (packing) is what my house looks like right now! I'm happy we'll be in the same-ish city. I love this picture of Nixon what a cutie.

Sad day for us but happy day for you! And just when Nixon and Wilson are old enough to start playing with each other. Bummer. We'll have to get together sometime this summer when we are home. Hope you are enjoying Southern Alberta!
