It's Been Three Years!

Our last family photo before we moved to Arizona - taken in April 2005!

Today marks 3 years since the Bosley family made the trek to sunny AZ. Who can forget the trip?

ASTRO VAN filled with Me, Carson, Morgan, Cousin Colby, Uncle Griffin and Grandma Karla! Of course there were many other items piled in all around us. The definite HEROES of the whole trip without a doubt have to be Grandpa Gary and Uncle James who not only drove the BUDGET rent a truck, but sat on the side of the I-10 freeway for over 10 hours because the truck was broken down. Then they had to endure blaring RAP music at 2 a.m. when the tow truck finally arrived! How can we ever thank them enough?! Ryan had already been in AZ, staying with the Mangisi's, to start his job.

Grandma Karla and Uncle Griffin, I am sure you have not forgotten the crazy ride in the back bench of the ASTRO VAN, to pick up dinner!! How many U-turns do you think we made?

Well we have been very happy here in sunny AZ. Right from the start or even before the start, I knew that this was the right place for me and my family! When we were apartment looking in Mesa, the assurance that I felt, in one particular apartment,was unmistakable. I grew so much in that ward, and in my calling, in the short 10 months that we were there. I will forever be grateful to the Lord for directing me and my family to the Kingsborough Park ward.

We have loved Buckeye, and our family is very happy here! I cannot believe that we have been in sunny AZ for 3 years. We all have changed and grown so much! Good things: we are very happy together, we have been blessed with a beautiful home and our family has grown! Bad things: I miss my parents and siblings like crazy, I am not close enough to serve my sisters and parents like I would like to. We would not change anything, especially only being 5 hours away from our parents! We love Arizona!

3 years already? I can't believe it's been that long! Just so you know, I don't think that anyone here has gotten used to you not being here for family functions. You are still missed. But, it's good to be where you're supposed to be and living a happy life! We love you all!

I wish we still lived in California. It is really hot in AZ.
