This can only mean one thing......



Oh goodness....is that a for sale sign that I see? Is that a For Sale sign outside of this house:




That's right!! We are selling our house....but why are we selling our house? Could it be because we are MOVING TO TEXAS??? Oh yes... you see, Texas missed US and we missed Texas. Walt has been transferred and we will be living in Houston! We move in a month. We can't wait to go from this


to this:

I can't tell you the excitement I feel knowing that I will no longer be looking at this flag outside of my work place

I will now be looking at this one, blowing so beautifully in the wind....

I will be leaving Sooner Country

and actually be returning to a place where people support OUR BAYLOR BEARS

Now of course Walt and I will miss several things about Tulsa....(take note I said TULSA, not Oklahoma) We will miss Stone Horse, Garlic Rose and my wonderful hair salon.....

But we do have La Madeline and Central Market to make up for it!

Walt and I are so excited that we will be finishing a chapter and starting a new one.....Walt will no longer be doing International Audit...he will now be an Economist for ConocoPhillips...so that means that HE WILL BE HOME!! I've packed my classroom, and now we are about to venture to London...and when we come back home....we will make TEXAS, HOUSTON TEXAS our new home!

Meredith - this is so exciting. I am sure you are ready to start the next chapter of your life! No wonder you were upset leaving your kiddos!! I teach 6th grade (in an elementary school) and totally know how it feels to become so close to them. BTW, I am one of Nichole's friends from Baylor and read your blog all the time:)
