Those who've moved away from family...how hard/easy was it?
My husband and I have been married for 18 years and 43 years old. We have 2 kids, both adopted, who are 8 1/2 (ds) and 5 (dd). I have lived in this county since I started 1st grade, so that's 37(?) years. I didn't even move off to college because there is one within a 15 minute drive from here. My parents are a 25 minute drive away and his are a 20 minute drive away.
We will be moving in the middle of June to a city that's around 5 hours from here. I'm excited but nervous too. I guess I'm just being sentimental just thinking about the kids not seeing the grandparents as much. Other than this, I'm truly excited!
For those of you who've moved far away, is there any suggestions on making an easy transition for the whole family? Looking back, is there anything you wished you had done, didn't do, or whatever?
Thanks in advance!
