Saying Goodbye

So, after four years of living in the great state of Texas, we are finally moving home to Canada. It looks like the song "I'll be home for Christmas" really rings true for us this year. And while I have been longing to go home for a while, it's a little bittersweet really.

The boys have made some really great friends here, and it seems so cruel to pull them out of school half way through the year. And then moving during the holidays is going to mean that this is a VERY modest Christmas for them. Plus, this is truly the only home Ryker knows.

But then I remember the great things: the boys will be close to their cousins, aunts and uncles and grandparents. I will too, be near my mom, siblings, nephews -- something I've been sorely missing.

Not really sure where I'm going with this post, and I know that is so not typical of this blog. But I'm really at a loss for what to say. There's a lot I will miss, but I'm so happy to be going home.

I am so sad that you are leaving Texas because it looks like Ryan and I will be moving there the end of Jan. (if things go well this week in Austin!). But, you can't stay in Texas for me. I am sure the your decision to move was not an easy one to make. I wish you all the best as you make the move. What a great Christmas it will be to be home with all your family. Keep your positive attitude and things will be alright. You're in my prayers! Love you!
