Off we go....

Sorry about the lack of updates, I promise to be better once we're settled into our new home.

Especially since I won't have any friends.
No friends = more free time

Josh did indeed recover from his illness and made good time getting to Monterey. He's been there for a couple days now, checking out the area and looking at houses.
Today the kids and I fly out to meet him!
I'm excited about the new adventure, but a little sad to leave good friends behind.
Last night Alex said goodbye to her best friends. Before bed she asked to have the tissues next to her because she thought she might want to cry a little.
This is new territory for us; we've never had a kid old enough to really understand the concept of not knowing when we might see friends again.

Hopefully the beautiful views and new environment will distract her until we can help her meet some more kiddos.

I think we're all ready for our flight-- I've got games loaded to my iPad, movies to watch, coloring books, and enough snacks to feed the whole plane.
But I'm still not looking forward to it.
I keep reminding myself that I need to be patient, because there will no doubt be some whining.

And to be honest, by the time we hit the 5th hour or so,it will probably be me whining! I dislike long flights.

Wish us luck! The next entry will be posted from California hopefully!

Godspeed!!!! Though I dislike long flights - they usually aren't as bad as the anticipation. I do hope this is the case for you, too.

New and exciting adventures await. I am excited for you!!

Take care and keep in touch! (I have enjoyed getting to "know" you through your blog!)

Prayers and blessings, Anna from NC
