Well they are gone...

My daughter and her family moved this weekend. We moved them to Ohio. This is one of the reasons I haven't posted lately. She's been busy packing, and I've been trying to spend time with the boys.

Ryan, who is four, and loves to stay with Granny (that's me) spent most of last week here. And Jessi (my daughter) and Myer (who is 19 months) came every evening to eat supper since her kitchen was packed up. And then they all stayed the last few nights here.

Everyone keeps saying Ohio isn't that far (it's 5 hours), but it seems very far when you are used to your family being less the 5 minutes away (and that's walking, not driving). Just keep us all in prayer as this is quite an adjustment for us.

Tomorrow will be a busy day filled with cleaning, then I hope to get into some kind of routine soon. I seem to do better when I have a routine.

Thanks for stopping by and I will have some things to share soon.

Awwww! Kim, I know how you feel. It's so hard when your kids move away :(. Five hours is pretty far away when you're a mom. I'll be praying for you. Go and stamp when you get a chance- that does help a little.

I moved 29 hours away from family and then we moved back 2 years ago. It was hard to be so far away but it made us appreciate family and the time we did have with them! Hugs to you, stamping will keep you busy!

OH, Kim. ((HUGS))

I live close to my parents (less than 5 min drive), and all my siblings live in the same town as well. A couple of years ago, we were possibly going to have to move 5 hours away, and my heart broke. I wept. People said "it's only 5 hours". But to me, it could just as well have been 5 states. I so want to give you a big hug right now, as I know the heartbreak you must be going through right now! I pray that it'll get easier as time goes on, and that other things will bring you "closer" (email, Skype, etc) I know it doesn't replace, but it'll hopefully help. :)
