Goodbye to the Rutmans

When we moved into our house 8 years ago, our next door neighbors had the most adorable 2 1/2 year old girl we'd ever seen and were pregnant with a little boy.  Since that time, we've watched Jordyn and Jared grow from a newborn and toddler to "big kids" literally at the end of our driveway.  Ben (and now Lincoln) have spent many hours standing at our windows waving or yelling to them while they played hockey or basketball outside, got in the way when they threw the lax or softball, convinced them to search for worms around the side of their house, and expected them to share nearly all of their outside toys (to which Jordyn and Jared were usually very generous). :)  

We will be sad to leave them as our next door neighbors who were always so sweet to us and our kids.  Thanks, Wendi and Neal....our first real neighbors who have watched us change from a young engaged couple who bought a house on a whim to a family of four giving loads of advice along the way and who have given us endless recommendations for doctors, schools, painters, etc. over the years.  We will miss you guys!
