We moved in last Friday, we got the paperwork on Friday, turned it in on Monday, and the kids went to school on Tuesday. Boom, boom, boom. Walking these kids to school has brought back so many memories. Do you see these two things below?
The sidewalks go up and down and are slanted sometimes because of the bulging root systems of the trees that line the streets. The trees are huge and strong. It's a gorgeous effect. In a month or so there will be Fall leaves dancing across the streets in the wind. The sun will still shine with force but there will be a crispness in the air. The kids will still be wearing shorts and t-shirts and our weekends will still take us to the beach. I'm so glad our path in life has brought us back here. My children, all five of them, will get to experience a little of my life and childhood.
Back to the present. . . we are starting over but we are not young. It's exhausting but I feel like it will be worth it. Jonathan will do what he loves. The kids and I will too.
