Oregon, Part two, in absolutely no order. . .

thanks to you, blogger. We have tried everything in our power to fix our blogger problem. I can view all blogs, except those that are closed. I can't comment on any blog at all or even view comments, including my own.

I've never hoped that a student would forget their books as much as I've hoped for it this week:) If a student forgets their books, it gives me time to do a post here at school. Obviously, a little gal forgot her books, so you can thank her for this post:)










Important things concerning this post..............................
1) We spent a bit of time looking for an apartment--and I believe that we have a few very good choices to choose from. That was a blessing to me personally, because I felt like it was something I could cross off of my "possible move to Oregon" list:)
2) God allowed us to meet with the sr. manager of a FedEx station and he was so encouraging about the move/change of positions for Steve. Normally, a FE manger will give an employee 30 days to transfer to their new position--this man was willing to give us 60 if we need it. Only God could have worked that out! Oh, and most of the trucks are hybrids--Steve thought that was pretty impressive. . .but really, did we expect anything else from Oregon? ? ? ?
3) Yes, we completely cut off Mike and Steve's heads in the picture. And yes I am wearing my sweater. Mike is the Teaching Elder and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with his family. It was another thing on my "list" to cross off: meet Mike's wife and like her. I did! And I am so thankful for the possibility of us moving out there to learn from Mike and Susan Hanafee and the rest of GTBC!
4) I believe this will be my last post until after Thanksgiving, barring a miracle to our computer-tooter. So, Happy Thanksgiving! I'll be enjoying Steve's family and my mom's french toast recipe on Thanksgiving Day. . .Click here if you would like the best french toast recipe ever. It's become our tradition for Thanksgiving Day.
Love, Sarah
5) And p.s., Yes, I loved shopping--especially in the Pearl District!

  1. So sorry to hear about your blogger problems. How frustrating! Glad you had a few minutes to post at school though. =) I'm going to have to visit some of those shops you photographed!

  2. Well, you probably won't get to read this due to "puter problems", but I thought I'd jot a comment in case you did. I love all the pics of Oregon. I think it's a shame I always visit Eugene, Salem, Albany, etc. but only drive through Portland. It looks like it has SO much character. I have an Uncle who now lives in Portland. Unfortunatly I haven't been back since he moved there more than 2 years ago.(Isn't that sad!) I think I need to fix that, especially if a friend of mine is also living there. (Or may be there this summer. = ) )
