It began in December 2009
and it finally ended February 10, 2011

That's 430 days

A really long time in Shelly years...

We are so thankful for all your prayers, words of encouragement and friendship!

Yesterday, The Children's Clinic offered Jeff the position of Administrator.
They actually called earlier than they said they would!
Imagine that!
They have 25 Pediatricians and have been operating in Portland 100 years this year.

It will still be a long commute (but it's not Florida!)
We still have to pay Oregon income tax (that's why I drive over and shop tax free guilt free!)

We are so thankful to not be moving away from the beautiful NW!
We are so thankful this long, dark, bumpy, windy, confusing, frustrating journey is behind us! 

Have an awesome weekend!



  1. Congratulations!! SO happy that you will not be leaving to anywhere, not to mention Florida. *happy happy dance

  2. I love happy endings. God is good!
