If you haven't heard the news, we're moving to Chicago!  Andy accepted a job at the University of Chicago, as HPC system administrator.  Congratulations to Andy on his new job!!

We've been thinking about moving for a long time now, whether it was to a new house in the Champaign/Urbana area, or to some other city, but we had to wait until the time was right.  We considered moving two summers ago, but Faye and Drew were two weeks from starting Kindergarten and Andy had just started his masters degree in CS. About 4-5 weeks ago he decided to apply for a job at the University of Chicago.  We figured it would be at least a couple weeks before they would contact him, a couple more for an interview, and if he was offered the job we'd be there around January.  He was contacted in three days and had an interview in less than a week! This has all gone so unbelievably fast, my head is still spinning.

I'm excited for Andy to have this opportunity at this wonderful college. It is really beautiful too, have you ever seen the campus? 

It will be an exciting adventure, but I'm also very freaked out!  Moving to Chicago with three little kids?  Not something I ever thought I would do.  I can't say for sure what our plans are for now, or where we'll live, because we haven't completely decided yet.  We've changed our minds about where we'll live just about every day since he accepted the job. But hopefully soon we'll get it figured out - he starts working in one week!
