Can you guess....?

Let's see if you can guess where the Ryans are moving now....!

Here's a pic of Becca's new school "shoes":

And here's a pic of Tommy's new shirt:

Yee-haw! Did you guess.... Texas!? You're right! John is down there already- he's a working man again! We're moving to the Dallas area and we are really excited. Here's a little bit of what happened to bring this big change. But before I do, I must say that these wonderful people are our heroes:

This is John's sister, Mary, and her husband, Josh. (Thanks for letting me steal your pic from Facebook.:) Josh & Mary moved to Texas last fall when Josh got a job after finishing his MBA at BYU. To make a long story short, Josh decided to take a new job at Ford and needed to leave his current job. He recommeded John take his position when he left. He fortunately had built a great relationship with his employers and they decided to interview John. John did a few interviews via Skype and we found out about 2 weeks ago that he was hired!

Wow, what a blessing in these crazy times. We really appreciate all of you that prayed and fasted for and with us through these 9 1/2 months (yes, really) of unemployment. We appreciate those that looked for ways to help and lift us. It truly has been a trial of patience and faith. This is such a great blessing and a Win, Win, Win for everyone involved. Josh needed to leave his job, the company needed to fill the position and John needed work. Yay for all three! Isn't it interesting that we were in a position that we can just pick up and leave at this point in time as well. This job makes us feel happy that the others didn't work out! The Lord has blesses us and watched over us always... of course!

So we are leaving at the end of this month. John flew down to Dallas last week to start work and is staying with Mary and Josh. We love and appreciate them so much for their help and support! John will fly back here on the 25th and we will pack the truck on the 26th (it's nice that all of our things are already packed!) and drive the 27th & 28th. Then we'll be official Texas residents! We're so excited for the new adventures that await us.

Disclaimer: The pictures are not the "real" boots and t-shirt of B and T. I don't have my camera equip. w/ me so I had to improvise and steal some pics from the net!
