Change...

The kids are in preschool in Gig Harbor for a month.  This is our last month on Raft Island before we move down to Mexico full time.  We have rented our house to a wonderful couple of gay, Jewish women with two kids. Couldn't be happier with the tenants :)  Solly and Dede start Waldorf education once down in Playa in November and soon will be fluent in Spanish!  What a gift!  Brad will "commute" to work, which is to say he will do as much as humanly possible from Mexico and when he needs to be in WA state for his job he will stay at Gam and Pa's house and take care of business :)  It is a big change for all of us, and not everybody is thrilled with this decision for various reasons.  Ultimately though, Brad and I need to do what we feel right for us as a married couple and for our kids.  Some might think it's strange that we are living apart to be "closer".  It isn't...  We need this, Brad needs this, I need this.  So wish us luck!  Here we go grabbing on to the seat of our pants and flying into the unknown...


I love you all,
Mama

Well, I will admit to not being thrilled because, selfishly, it means I will see you less often! But visiting you will now involve taking a sunny vacation, so I can't really complain about that. :)
Glad that you guys have decided what is best for your family and are able to move forward with it!

Thanks Katie, hard life decisions. Can't always make everyone happy all at the same time. I appreciate your support :) also, cannot wait to have you at our home in Mexico!
