The Times They Are A-changin'- Part 1

Wow!  As September comes to an end, I can hardly believe what awaits us in October.  I have referred to big things in past posts, but I couldn't really discuss them until now.  Several months ago, Jolly Green Daddy was offered a job working as a United States Public Health Service officer at the Centers for Disease control.  This is something that he has been trying to achieve for a long time.  And now that it is actually happening it is rather surreal.  After many months of correspondence with other government officials, JGD will officially be a Lieutenant in the USPHS and begin his position with the CDC in October.  He leaves for the Officer Basic Camp (mini bootcamp) in 2 weeks.  He then spends 2 weeks learning how to be a PHS officer and then heads off to Atlanta to begin working at the CDC.

So what does this mean for the rest of us?  Well, we have all been busy getting our current house ready to sell and will be taking another trip to Atlanta to look for a new house.  Sprout goes back and forth between being excited about this new adventure and bummed that she will miss her friends here.  I feel for her because I have been feeling the same way.  I know that this is going to be a great new start for our family, but am a little intimidated to leave the known for the unknown.

If anyone has any tips for moving or selling your house with young children, please add them to the comments.
