Thank-you Grandpa and Grandma!

Today is my last day at work and it's hard to believe how fast the last year and a half has gone!

When we were debating which job I should take back in the spring of 2007, this job in Weyburn seemed to make the most sense in so many ways.  But one question lingered – where should we live?  Should we commute from Regina?  Rent an apartment in Weyburn?  Stay with Shea's parents during part of the week?  The whole week?

We'd always had a great relationship with her parents (none of those in-law horror stories you so often hear) but it's a different situation to live with someone five days a week for over a year compared to visiting for a day here and there or going on weekend camping trips or whatever. 

But ultimately, for our finances, we opted to live with them full-time during the week once I decided to come to work for Southeast Regional Library.  (For our sanity – and theirs – we did decide to go back to our house in Regina every weekend! )

And in the end, the year couldn't have gone much better.  Joan and
Dennis have been beyond generous and helpful to us.  They've loved having their first grandchild right here for them and Pace has thrived with having his extended family in such close proximity.  They camp at Nickle Lake, a regional park just outside Weyburn, all summer so that's been great for Pace as well. 

It's going to be tough to say 'good-bye' later today but I have a feeling we'll see Grandpa and Grandma in Regina more than we ever did before.  And the trips to Weyburn won't stop either – we know already they have a comfortable bed for us!

Here's a little video I put together as a thank-you to them for all they've done for us…
