At a crossroads

Ok, so after a lot of coaxing by friends, family and co-workers, I am taking the time to start a blog for our family.
I've named it "byerscrossroads" as I've been thinking a lot about how many crossroads we face in our lives and the directions we choose to go in. Do we ignore the fact that we have other options to turn to and keep on the straight and narrow? Do we take a chance on a new road, not knowing where it leads or what is going to be around the bend? Have we even considered that we can tear down trees and make our own roads? 2008 has definitely presented it's share of crossroads to our family! While it's scary to think of getting off that beaten path that so many have gone down, I have found so much adventure in exploring new paths, although sometimes I do need a push from fate :)
These last few months for our family have been a blur between Bobby starting at a new store, moving to a new town, myself starting a new position and now Kyleigh starting school. For those of you close to me, I cannot thank you enough for your understanding of my craziness this summer...and sometimes continued craziness! While this crossroad is far in the distance, looking back I am glad we took the chance as a family to make our own way and step out of our comfort zone. I hope that you all will have the support of great family and friends as I do to take that chance and go down the road less traveled. And I hope you all enjoy our blog :)
