New Job AND new Home!

It’s been a fast two months since we have arrived home. Lots of adjustments and changes  too.  The great news is, as of this week, both Jeannette and Richard are now employed! Richard continues to work for Broulim’s (and has still not adjusted to night shift) and Jeannette started her first day of work today as supervisor at the Kennel at Spring Creek Animal Hospital in Jackson, WY.

We have also decided recently that we will be moving out of our current home and will officially become residents of Idaho. Jackson is right on the border of the two states so it is very typical in our area to live in one state and work in the other. There were many challenges with our current housing when we returned home- thankfully we were not caught unaware of the situation. We were hoping to avoid the most delightful task of moving (dripping with sarcasm there!) but we are very excited about the place we have chosen to move into. It is set up very well for horses complete with pasture, corrals, round pen, barn, riding arena, and immediate access to forest service! A horse lovers haven! The house also is far larger with 3  bedrooms, an office, 2 baths, plenty of storage, and an unobstructed sweeping view of the Grand Teton Mountains! We are very excited because our new home will have plenty of room for guests! :)


  1. glad to hear you are home and getting settled. Sorry you had to move but your new abode sounds absolutely wonderful.
    Hoping to hear more about your plans for the future and the Ranch.
    Take care,
    Much love,

  2. Looks like things are starting to fall into place. Congratulations on the jobs. It sounds like Jennette has found a job she will love.
    Your new home sounds wonderful. I got to take a trip with my Grandma, Aunt and cousin when I was 16 to Yellowstone. I have never forgotten how beautiful the Tetons were. How wonderful it would be to be able to look out and see them everyday.

  3. Wonderful news :) You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. We enjoyed a quick visit to see your folks – wish you were there, too. Enjoyed visiting your brothers – meeting Shawn for the first time and of course your sisters-in-law!
    I know what you mean about the Tetons – spectacular – and what a gift for you to look upon His Majesty each day.

  4. I have been busy with a variety of things, so I have not checked on status here for a few weeks. This is wonderful news! I believe Libby M is correct: God has provided another (big!) step towards Hearts Up Ranch changing from vision to reality!!

    I have never been to Yellowstone or the Tetons. They are on my list of places to visit.

  5. Great to hear you’ve both found work, and your new place sounds ideal for you!
    Love you! Chris

  6. Hope all is well…just wondering what happened to you guys…I haven’t seen any updates on the blog or facebook. Is the ranch open?

    Read more here: http://www.kansas.com/2012/09/28/2507004/butler-county-cowboy-preacher.html#storylink=cpyButler County cowboy preacher Dan Boyd is a man with a mission.
    At age 62, he is headed off on a journey by horseback that he hopes will eventually cover 48 states. He will be doing it as an old-fashioned circuit riding minister with the motto, “Stay safe in the saddle.”
    On Sunday, at 10:30 a.m., Boyd will lead a church service at the Butler County Cowboy Church, followed by a free lunch at 2 p.m. and a 4 p.m. concert. The church is located at 5118 SW 100 Street, 11/2 miles east of Augusta.
    The minister said his goal along the journey is “to mend fences, fix a porch, replace windows, patch roofs or whatever else needs fixing.”
    People who have horses and would like to join him on the day’s first ride are encouraged to accompany him as he rides off into the Flint Hills. To chart his progress, go to http://www.the-last-circuit-riding-preacher.com.
    Boyd will be accompanied on the trip with his wife, Gracie, and their son, Gary.
    Reach Beccy Tanner at 316-268-6336 or btanner@wichitaeagle.com.

  8. Summer has came and gone. Sitting here thinking of past things and you came to mind. I can find nothing new in news on Richard and Jeannette. I hope life is being good to you. Wondering if your plans have had to be put on hold or changed as far as Hearts Up Ranch goes. It would be nice to hear from you two. You are still in our prayers. Whatever doors needs opened for you may God open.
