Long awaited update from the Vatchers

Where do I begin....My little family has had so much thrown at them, it is hard to remember and keep track of everything.  I have gone from making the best friend I could ever ask for from Heavenly Father to a HUGE move. So let start out with the friend.
     Ashley Davenport must have been my ultimate best friend in the pre-exsistance. We met about a month ago at church. She had just moved in and was in the hallway with her beautiful little girl Cordelia or as we call or Cordy. Of course with my son I am ALWAYS in the hallway. Ashley, you could tell is not your typical LDS lady. She didn't grow up in the church, but did find it later in life after a fun and adventurous path, and is now a Great member with an unbelievable testimony of the gospel. As most people know, I am not typical either. We introduced ourselves and found that we have soooooooo much in common and that we should have totally have been twins. She is the friend I have always been looking for. She is just the cutest most loving, and quirky person ever. I love it! Well, of course I knew it had to be too good to be true. Two weeks later Michael gets offered a position as a chinese teacher in MEMPHIS TN!!!!!! Go figure I met someone amazing that I could actually do girl time with, like really girly girl stuff with, and we have to move in 1 week. I was going to be moving away from the best friend I never got. We both cried about it. We did however get to sneak only 1 girl time in there. I introduced her to Charming Charlies! LOVE THAT STORE! Had lunch then went home.

Did I mention that we had to move in 1 week. That was crazy! In that 1 week Mike and I both gave our jobs a 1 day notice to quit and said our good-byes to our fresno jobs and lives. We rushed around packing all of our stuff, contacting movers, trying to find an apartment, and getting in contact with the bishop in Memphis to see what we were in for. Well, we didn't find an apartment, so booked a hotel instead until we could find a hotel. Well, Monday, July 30, 2012 was the big day. We packed our car full, gave big hugs and kisses to our family members, and drove... and drove... and drove. We drove for 3 days to get to Memphis. We did stop for a while and stayed the night with my mom in Oklahoma. I was so nice to see her.  Anyways, we got to Memphis, found his school and found that is was farther from where we planned to live then we thought. Good thing we didn't get an apartment.

So we found the perfect apartment for us. it is a 2x2 and sooooo cute and big. The Bishop we thought we would get that had helped us out so much had us over for dinner after we went to church with him and his wife. They were such a great couple. We are blessed to have had so much help from them.

This last Sunday we did get to go to our new and for sure ward and everyone was so friendly. Well, the older ones. The people our age, didn't even come up to us to say hi or anything. It was weird. Oh well. We are so excited to be apart of this ward and to meet and get to know them all. They have been so friendly and have already given us dinner invites and yummy treats. We won't even get me started on this moving company. HORRIBLE first experience with movers. We are not even recieving all of our stuff. 1/3 of our stuff is still in Fresno. Horrible. It does look like we might get it this weekend. YEAH!!!! Then I will finally have something to do other then go crazy in a house with just me and a two year old.

Well, wish us luck on this new journey through life.
