Updates, Updates...

So, the ball has been continually rolling since the Silver State deflation, and we have lots of updates for everyone!

First....it's official! Noah is enrolled with Quantum Helicopters in Chandler, AZ and will be moving to Mesa on March 12. He is really excited, because he will get to be at school for 4 hours everyday--2 hours of flying and 2 hours of ground school. He'll be living with Nik and Anissa from March until June. If you haven't already checked out their website, there's a link in the last post. Here's what the facility looks like...it's roughly 20 minutes from Nik's house, so when I move down in June, we plan on looking for an apartment somewhere in between Mesa and Chandler.
I found this cool picture of downtown Phoenix, and I just thought I'd put it on here...
But this may give you a better idea of the Arizona we will be growing to love!
Another cool update is that I have found a studio where I can temporarily teach and take class. I will still be heading up the Ballet and Tumbling programs at Body Motion, but replacement teachers will be hired until I move back. Also, since I'm so close, I'll be visiting often and teaching classes here and there, choreographing dances for our competitive teams next year, and of course running our summer dance program with Billie Jo this year.

This is Dance Connection Too...the studio I'm currently in contact with to work for. They are one of the absolutely top studios in the area, and it's located in Gilbert, AZ about 10 minutes from Noah's school, so it's really close, too!
They have 7 studios, and this is their main one. They're planning on having me be a major part of developing their Ballroom program, which is currently in it's growth stage, and I'm going to TA as many other classes as I can so I can become an even better teacher for my Body Motion kids!

I'll be staying in our house until June, and between now and then we are going to decide if we want to sell or not. Most likely we will work with a property management company to get a good renter in and continue to build our equity while we let them pay our mortgage. The market is just not that great right now, and the only people that are selling are those that have to, and we'd probably suffer for it by at least $20,000.

Anyway, that's the latest. Pipe in with what you think!!!
Love, Giselle

Wow, reading that made it feel so real. It is actually happening. I can't believe you guys will be here!! We are so happy to have you and help in ways we can. Happy Valentines Day. Love, Anissa

Billie Jo said...

I still don't want to talk about it! You haven't updated me about the studio there! That is really great. I will start planning my visits.

It sounds like it is all working out for you two. The studio sounds good and when you read their email to you, it sounds like they seriously are really looking forward to your skills and talents. Maybe the heat and the sun will dry up all those boils and you can get over that. Of course, just graduating, getting competition over, and a few of those pressures off of you will probably also help. I am happy for Noah!

Pretty exciting. In August when we are freezing in the 115 degree heat can we come down and warm up in the 120 degree heat?

Giselle and Noah Rasheta said...

Allen, sure you guys can come down and enjoy the beautiful weather! This winter in Utah has been a mix between extreme bitter cold and insane snowstorms. Utah County winter is usually so nice! Although I'm extremely happy for the moisture, I am more than ready for a little heat (don't quote me on this when I'm complaining about the summer in Phoenix!).

This sounds pretty exciting I hope things go well with you guys and your move.

Wow! I am so happy to hear that everything is working out for you guys. That will be hard to be apart for those few months though! I was really worried when I heard what had happened. I hope everything works out smoothly with the transition from school and state.
