Mom when is school gonna start?

Lexi was cleaning the kitchen last night like a good daughter when she asked me

"Mom when is school gonna start again?"
I said to her "why are u getting excited for school already?"
(or me summer had barely begun because it was soooooo cold for sooooo long).
She said "No it just seems like a weird summer."
I asked her why did she think its was so weird?
And she replied "Because we are usually packing and moving somewhere......."
Well I guess you know that you move to much when your kids expect to move at any given moment.. Since we have moved here and bought this house I have been asked by all the kids when we are gonna move again. I always say were not moving again for years and years. They always walk away with a disbelieving look in their eyes, like I am kidding and we really are gonna move the next day or something. SHesh! It might take a while for it to sink in. I still cant believe that were are here to stay YEAH!!!!

I know exactly how they feel!

I've moved one too many times in my ifetime and I'm not that old. Being a military brat has a way of giving one an obscure way of dealing and thinking about moving/traveling/making new friends/saying goodbye to soon to be old friends.

It's good you are giving your children roots. It's a better life. {in my personal opinion.}

Oh, I hate moving and have done my fair share. We live in Utah and still don't know if it will be permanent. Oh well. Fun blog. This was my first visit.

It looks like you all are having a fun summer! I know how your kids feel too, I get and itch every few years to move so I paint or redecorate or something to deal with it.
When we were at my parents house recently my dad mentioned that the best return missionary talk he has ever heard and will never forget was Jason's. I thought he might like knowing that he had a positive influence in someones life.
