The paragraph above is what I wrote a few months ago when I first found out about the move. Since then I have had time to chew it up and ponder the taste of change...and I dare say that I like it. Change is never easy but if it did't exist, the world would be slightly repetitive and a little boring. And this family has never liked being bored. I am sad to leave "my people" and "my city," but I am confident that my friendships with my amazing people are strong enough to stand the test of time and distance... (and thank goodness for Facebook and FaceTime!) My kids are starting to accept and welcome the change as well. We won't go until school is out, but it still has been very difficult for Busy to adjust to it all mainly because, for her, the anticipation of things is way worse than the actual thing. She is excited about the aquarium and the water and the mountains. And I am excited that it's Seattle and not Tim-Buck-Too, although we would make the best of that, too. The amount of adventures that the city has to offer is pretty much endless and our family has always loved a great adventure! So now, months later with smiles on our faces, we welcome the change and look forward to Oz.
Oz, here we come :)
