Eenie, Meenie, Miney, MO!

I have been asked to update on the happenings of the Dallin and Ashley Calaway family. So, here we go. Deep breath.

We've been in Ellensburg for the past 2 months. It's been an awesome experience and Dallin and I feel so blessed to be in the situation we are in. We love Ellensburg. The people, the area, the scenery, the fact that it's only a couple of hours from Pasco. We've loved our time here so far. But, it's coming to an end. Like now. Surprised? So are we.

Our life can very easily be defined in two words: "In Limbo". We are vagabonds. We have not and will not be settled in an area semi permanently probably until Dallin starts grad school, which should be next fall. He just started studying for his GMAT and will take it in May. He's excited and stressed, especially since we are totally being thrown out of our comfort zones and heading down to Salem, OR to start an operation down there for Jeff. It's going to be a challenge, but we can't wait. And the fact that Marcus and Ash are there as well makes it even better. Needless to say, adventure is becoming our middle names!

So, there it is. An update on us. Dallin will go to UW this Wednesday with a friend of ours who did the Executive MBA program there, tour the campus and meet with the faculty in the program. Hopefully he'll get an in with that program. If it goes well, then UW, here we come! If not, Willamette, down in Salem, is totally in the running still. As well as OSU in Corvallis. After our adventures in Seattle on Wednesday, we'll head down to Salem to find an apartment. We've already got a nice little list of about 15 places we want to look at so, we should be busy. Who knows where we'll be a year from now, but oh well, what's the fun in knowing where your life is going? :) But seriously, life is good (despite a few sinus infections we've been dealing with) and we're excited to embark on our next big adventure. Oregon, here we come!

That's some serious limbo and at least 2 moves in your near future! Good luck with it all.

Austin felt famous because he knew you......and worked for Dallin for a day! :) I just nosed through all your pics! Have tonz of fun with your adventures! The crazy times are the best times!
