Well, so far so good on our house inspection. It was actually really encouraging because all the inspectors said over and over, "How old is this house? It is in such good shape!" That made us feel really good and we're excited to close in late May.
Since we're all done with the house hunting/paperwork stuff, we spent Saturday wandering around the University of Utah campus and around Sugar House Park. At the university we spent quite a bit of time in the library where we got to see different art exhibits and the largest collection of usable type and printing presses in the country. We enjoyed learning a few new things and seeing all that is going on on campus.
After spending time on campus, we went down to Sugar House Park which is the park 3/4 of a mile from our new house. Brad made a slide show of the pictures he took to give an idea of what a neat park it was. It was really busy with lots of dogs, kids and BBQ's. We're excited to live so close to such a neat park!
Brad's job is going well. He's really excited that all he learned in Denver is so helpful in what he needs to do here. He's still in the beginning stages of getting to know his staff and making sure the people are being used in the most effective ways, but he's already had a lot of opportunities for training and coaching. He loves that. He has quite a long commute (especially compared to his 3 minute commute in Denver!) but he's enjoying listening to sermons and podcasts while he's in his car.
Addy Paddy tried bananas for the first time this week. Besides avocado, it was her first fruit. I had to laugh because we've been holding off on fruit so as not to develop a 'sweet tooth' in her. She made the worst gag faces yet with the bananas! She actually even emptied the contents of her mouth (repeatedly!) into her bib! She's never done that before! Go figure! Well, we eat a lot of bananas around here, so she'll just have to get used to them! :)
We're off to try to find a church home. . . not an easy task in Salt Lake. We'd appreciate your prayers for a church.
We hope you are enjoying spring! Take care!
