Saying Goodbye

Why is saying goodbye so hard?  Tomorrow morning my brother and sister-in-law set off across the country as they move to a warmer state.  Up to this point, we have pretty much lived in the same community our entire lives!  Saying goodbye is hard ... and, admittedly as they trek to their warmer, arid climate I am a tad bit jealous.  We still have snow on the ground, and winter clothes are not yet put away.  Oh to be able to keep flip flops by the back door year round! 

While parting is hard, the boys are already scheming and trying to plan a visit next spring as their new home is quite close to MLB spring training!
We will certainly miss seeing these guys regularly but are so thankful for technology ... now, we just have to teach my mom how to use Skype (Sister, I hear ya laughing!  Mom, watch out!  Between J. and I we are going to have you using technology in no time so that you can "see" T. and K. regularly!).

Oh so sad..... But it gives you an excuse to go somewhere warm. Are they going to be moving to Texas????? Just curious....... Then it would give us an excuse to meet.

Awh...So sad. I feel your sadness. Praying that God blesses you all more than you expect through the change.

Moving away is never easy...but gives good excuses for family to travel, hehe :). Between us (T & K) and cousin B, we are trying to figure out how to get the boys down so we can teach them some desert cowboy ways! Of course, we won't teach them any new shannigans to come home with, yea-right!
