Big choices and Big changes..
Sorry that I haven't posted in such a long time. Thank you Bobbi for your nice comment and checking up on us. The kids are both healthy and doing fine. We have just been wrestling with a big decision the past few weeks. In the end we decided late last week that we need to move back to where we were living two years ago. It is seven hours from where we live now and it means leaving a nice friendly small town where we have made some really good friends. The hardest thing for me is it means Alex leaving his school that we both LOVED so much this year. Jens job has not been what we expected when we moved here two years ago and we had hoped things would change or we would find a way to make it work. In the end it is not to be. I am very excited about living in a bigger city with all that brings again. We will be about 2 hrs away from Grandparents again so that will be great.
I have to say that I am so proud of Alex. I was literally sick to my stomach for two days waiting for Jens to give notice so we could tell Alex and "go public". This is a very small close nit town so we had to wait. Well we told him and he was very excited listing the things he missed doing that we did there. He has cried a few tears realizing that he won't be on the playground with his friends here in first grade etc...Oh how that hurts to see him hurt. I would give a lot for him to be able to stay. I do know that once we get there and he sees some friends from Preschool again and meets his class next year he will be OK. I am so proud of him and how well he is doing. So that is what is up in the Guatemama Two household. Anyone have any advice on how to handle a move with a 6 year old? I just pray that this is the last move and that he can spend his school years in one place from now on.
It just seems this roller coaster of a ride we have been on this past year is never ending. Hope this is it for a while. I am getting motion sickness.
