Life has been a little hectic lately. We are getting ready to leave for Atlanta, Georgia here in about 3 weeks. We are leaving a few weeks earlier than usual and its making things a little crazy. Jadi is busy, busy, busy with work. He's going to a million meetings, recruiting guys and going out of town on the weekends for pre-season selling and training. I have one hard working husband!! I'm already getting myself stressed out about leaving and getting everything situated. I feel so sad to leave our new house right as I just started to get settled in. I hate not being around my family for the summer, that's one of the hardest things for me. Every summer is a challenge for us and we always learn so much. I am really excited to see what Georgia will be like. I'm just getting anxious to get started so it can be over! I am really proud of Jadi for how hard he works and all the stresses he has to deal with. I truly admire his leadership skills and his patience. I love you Jadi!'s to the summer ahead of us....
