We have direction!

After much prayer, encouragement from friends and family, and advice from a trusted mentor, Brian has decided to play another year of baseball! He verbally committed to play for an independent team in Somerset, NJ. You can check it out at www.somersetpatriots.com. Our plans are not finalized. Brian still has to sign the contract, but we're pretty sure this is the direction the Lord is leading us. We have no idea yet what our living arrangements will be either. We've heard of a good host family that may be willing to have us. They live in Lakewood, NJ which is about 40 minutes away from the baseball field. The other option is to live in a hotel for the summer! I'm kind of hoping that the host family situation will work out. One of our good friends (former teammate of Brian) lived with this family a few years ago, and he said they are wonderful.

Brian will leave for a short spring training (10 days) in Florida around April 22. Then the season starts on May 4th!

Aww man! I can't believe we're moving down south and you're moving up north!! I wish we could be here to see both of you and watch a few of the games! Best of luck with your new team in NJ, Brian! Where will you be down in FL? Maybe we'll get to see you down there during your 10 days. We'll be moving around the same time.

I am so excited for you guys - and so excited for us as we will be close again. We'll be about an hour aways so that will definitely be close enough for weekend trips. Let me know if there is anything we can do to help you with the move.
