Fall (Change) is in the air...

Fall is definitely my favorite season and it always reminds me of change. The leaves changing and falling off the trees, weather changing, the time change (yuck to this though!), the beginning of school, and on and on. This year is no different. Fall is in the air and change is happening at the Greener household.

This Friday is Cam's last day at JD Clark and Company. He has accepted a position at Goldman Sachs in SLC, as their new Tax Manager. Leaving JD Clark has been a difficult decision filled with sadness, anxiety, and tummy aches!

Cameron has worked there since 2003-his first job-using his degree. He has been successful and JD Clark has been good to us. JD Clark is less than 3 miles away from our house. It is also "family friendly." Cam can come home early to tend the kids so I can be to work at 5pm, he could pick up Carson at school if I needed him to, attend activities, etc. Again, JD Clark has been good to us.

But change can be good and we hope this change is. Cameron is excited for his new job and new opportunities. He feels like this is a step in the right direction, when he thinks of where he wants to be in five years...

With this change, I have cut back working even more (if that is even possible!) I used to work 3-4 days a month, and now I am working only my required call each month (18 hours). Besides call, the next time I actually work a shift is on Jan 6th!

Cam will be spending (a lot!) of time in NYC training for his new job, and we are making a little family vacation out of a few weekends of it-which I can't wait for.

This change is also making us think about relocating. It wouldn't be for awhile (bad season and time to try and sell a house!) but it doesn't make sense for Cam to drive to work and for me to drive to the University of Utah for school...We really love our house though, neighbors, ward, Carson is in the best program at school, the list could go on. If and when that change comes it is going to be difficult.

But what change isn't?

I wondered if you guys were thinking of relocating. Of course you know how much you will be missed, especially by us, since we do have a shortage of young families on our street. Best wishes to your family and all the change ahead, (welcomed change is always a good thing!)

Change is always hard, but good things are usually in store with change. Like you being able to be home more, what mom wouldn't love that? Sounds like a step in the right direction. Good Luck!

I am glad to here you willbe able to be home more. You are the best mom around. Change can be a positive thing. But we don't really want you to go further south or further EAST! By the way we were talking about Hannah's party when she becomes a lady Shelby says that would embarrass hannah and she discourages you of doing any planning.
