Last week was an exhausting week for us! We were very busy packing up, cleaning, getting our car shipped filled with what we need for 7 months, and spending the last few days with our families.
Luckily we got a non stop and arrived in Phoenix around 9 pm, then had to take a shuttle to Surprise about 45 minutes away. We rented an all inclusive place and we are so glad we did! Arriving to a nice clean place was so nice! We are living with two other roommates because they can charge 5x the normal monthly amount with everyone coming in for spring training. Tufts arrived Saturday night, and Bleier will arrive sometime next week.
Leaving our families back home was very hard! Jake is used to it every year, but that doesn't mean it's easy! Leaving our new home was really hard too! Jake wont be back until October, I'll come home off and on when I feel like it. My parents are flying out February 28. This is the first time my mom has been out for spring training! It will be fun for her to see what its like out here, and the games. Lynsay, Matt, & Kyler are meeting us over here when my parents get here too before they make their way to NC.
Thank you for all your prayers, and please continue to keep praying for us, Jake's arm, and career! We will keep you updated on how spring goes! We won't know where we are going until the end of March.
