On the Road Again


Hey, big news! We will be moving to Chicago the day after Thanksgiving! We are really excited about the move. Ed has accepted an Engineering job with the company he worked for when he graduated college, Regis Technologies. We will be apartment hunting in early December and hopefully find a place before Christmas.
We are really grateful for the time we've had out here in San Francisco, brief as it was. We're also excited for what the Lord has in store for us in Chicago. We are looking forward to being closer to both of our families, especially as we await the arrival of Baby #2.
So, to all those we invited to come stay with us in San Francisco, you may now consider yourselves more than welcome to visit us in Chicago.
Love to all,
Ed, Leah, Samuel & Baby Payne

WOW! Chicago, eh? How far will you be from both of your parents? Will Ed be full-time? Will he still pursue his doctorate? At Wheaton maybe??

Wow - BIG news! I'm really excited for you guys. I almost went to Wheaton for graduate studies after college and loved the area. I know you're going to love being closer to family too. Keep us all posted!!!

Yeah!! Samuel will only be 3-1/2 hours away (oh, and Ed and Leah too)!

wow, exciting! So that's the reason I can't work on cards with your mom the 28th... Hmmm. Well, selfishly, we'll be glad to have you so close again. Good luck with all the details of the move, etc. What a busy few weeks you have ahead. Thank goodness for 2nd trimester energy!

Wishing you all well and Godspeed. We'll be closer now too and we have family in the Chicago area, so maybe we'll be able to see you all.
