You wouldn’t believe how crazy life has been for us lately.
(Although if you have ever tried to buy a home and sell your home at the same time, then you DO know how crazy things can get!)
So why we are moving from our beautiful home in Scottsdale?
Simply put, we are moving because of our son, Ryan.
He published a book at 13
Has been riding unicycles (on mountains!) since he was 9
He climbed Half Dome at 8
He’s been volunteering around the world since he was 7. And he has such a good heart. He’s confident and kind, and not afraid to speak his mind. His favorite organization to volunteer for is Feed My Starving Children.
He’s an athlete. And he likes being smart. He wants to be an astronaut for NASA and go to Mars.
He wants to learn everything!
Because of his thirst for knowledge, he wants to attend a more challenging high school than the schools in our area. (And we have some great schools in our area, but THIS dream school is a better fit for him on every level).
So we are leaving this neighborhood we love, home we love, neighbors we love, all because we want to move to a home closer to Ryan’s dream school.
Once we decided to look at properties closer to his dream school – imagine our surprise to find our dream home! Dream Home 2.0! Complete with 360 degree mountain views. It’s a retreat in the middle of the city. We’re calling it the Christianson Retreat Center. Also known as #homesweethome
We can host events for our favorite organizations like Dress for Success, friend’s events, and Ryan’s school’s fundraisers & get-togethers.
Isn’t it amazing how once you decide to do something, God opens up the possibilities for you?
There is only one problem with the new home…..
Ryan hasn’t been accepted into his dream school yet. It’s the only high school he applied to. It’s the only school we feel is right for him. We are moving to be closer to the school, but they are right now in the process of figuring out who will make the cut and who will be accepted into the class of 2022.
So if you feel inclined to pray, send good wishes, or positive thoughts, we would appreciate them.
Oh! And here’s a sneak peak of our new place….we close on it next week!
Thank you for your prayers and your love! Can’t wait to share more photos of the new place after we move in.
