    So, where’s the place? When are you guys moving back to NYC?

  2. Daniel says:

    The place is in Washington Heights, not far from where we used to live. We’ll be back in the same ward again at church.

    We’ll move back on June 30.

  3. Sherpa says:

    Yeah, I know where Washington Heights is.

    Wow, that’s quick. Good luck with the move!

    So I’m guessing Jaime got the principal job? The last I saw on Linkup, she was debating which suit to wear to the initial interview – and I bet she looked awesome for 372 bucks!

    That is a super-fast move. I’m glad it’s close to where you lived before so it’s not entirely new territory. Good luck with everything!

  5. Daniel says:

    hey Paige,

    Yes, she did get the job. We’re pretty excited about moving back to the City. However, for the next couple of months—depending on how quickly I can find a job there—I’ll have to commute out to Pennsylvania to work. 😦

  6. Paige says:

    Well congrats to Jaime! Good luck in your job search, Dan; we’ll be praying for you. I hope you find a job quickly so you don’t have to commute for too long.

    And can I just tell you (again) how absolutely beautiful Ava is? Adorable, I tell you. I love looking at her.

  7. Jaime says:

    Thanks so much Paige!! I hope he finds something soon too. He may have a surprise interview tomorrow 🙂
