Here we come Elkton!

After a couple of change in plans, meeting with doctors, lots of résumé sending, emails and phone calls, we have decided to move to Elkton, Virginia (when Lee is done with his Army obligation). Well, prayer and pondering were the main factors going into the decision! 

Two doctors used to work at the practice in town, but after retirement they closed the doors just a couple of months ago.  The doctor who owns the practice seems very nice and is excited to get an optometry doctor back in town.  Lee and I are looking forward to the challenge of growing a business and for Lee to be his own boss.  This will be quite the experience!  If you're in the area and need your eyes checked or are camping in the Shanadoah National Park and your kid pokes his eye out or something....stop on by!  Something I am tickled about (and really, I don't know why) is that there is no Walmart in town.  It's kind of fun the town is that small.  Reminds me of Ely in a way.
