Our kids are all dealing with moving in their own way. They will eventually adapt and come to love their new home as much as their old one. In the mean time, some ups and downs.
Our oldest daughter had a rough time saying goodbye to her friends from church, school and gymnastics. We stayed a few days extra to go to her end of gymnastics season show and awards ceremony. She is level one and is doing really well. She was selected as MVP from her level one team (out of 8 little gymnasts). She was very sad to say good bye to everyone yesterday.
Our 5 year old son sometimes seems oblivious to it all, but everynow and then he shows his sensitive side. I think the move is stressing him too, but he shows it in other ways.
Our 2 year old is just coming to terms with moving. As our oldest reminded me tonight when Elizabeth was saying that she wanted to go back now, she said that Elizabeth has never moved before. (Heidi on the other hand is 6 and this is her 6th move).
Henry is cranky with a low grade fever and too much sitting in the car. He doesn't know what moving is, but when he got home Wednesday night and came inside he started to cry when he saw the empty house.
A few more weeks and we will be settled again!
