The Richins have had another banner year! Christopher got the prestigious Jefferson Fellowship to study at the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia, so we quit our job, sold all our stuff, and moved 2,800 miles from Maple Valley, Washington to Charlottesville, Virginia. We were able to spend most of the summer with both families, vacationing in California and South Carolina. We have settled into our new town and our new home, and are loving all the opportunities Charlottesville has to offer. Megan and Gavin started their new school, and I have stayed busy as the family COO. We look forward to 2008 and all the changes and excitement it will bring. We are happy that we have been able to spend time with family, reconnect with old friends, and make many new friends. The Lord has truly blessed us, and we continue to be thankful for everything that we have. Merry Christmas!
