So our theme this year is CHANGE. I thought that last year was a year of change, but I'm really realizing that it's going to be 2012. Starting the New Year out with a brand new baby girl, and now, a move back to the South.... specifically, Lexington, South Carolina.
We are beyond thrilled to be moving back to SC, and to be closer to our families. It will be so wonderful for Reagan to be closer to her grandparents. :)
It will be so sad to be leaving our friends in the DE/PA area....especially my school community. I have been so privileged to have spent the last three years on staff there. I feel that the other teachers and staff have nurtured, guided, and supported me in so many ways, and I will always feel their influence and love. I look forward to many visits/emails/texts/Facebooks, etc. with them, and am positive that we will stay in touch! Knowing that Reagan and I (along with my mom) will be back up in early June for kindergarten graduation makes saying goodbye much easier....at least, for now.
In the meantime, I have a TON of things to do to get ready, including researching information on our new home. While I'm familiar with Greenville, SC and Charleston, SC, I'm not all that familiar with Lexington (or the Columbia area, for that matter).
On my to do list:
-copies of Reagan's medical files
-copies of my medical files
-stop the mail/forward it
-pack out the apartment
-clean the apartment
-turn in Reagan's heart monitor (after May 5th)
-find a pediatrician in Lexington
-find a church in Lexington
-find a new home in Lexington (working hard on that one already, thanks to my hubby)
-find a daycare in Lexington, one that does drop ins, so I can use it as needed
Also, we spent Easter with my in laws, and then spent about 10 days at my parents house. Well, I spent 10 days. Hubby had to work in Columbia, so he only came up on the weekends. We had a blast spending some quality family time. I could totally bore you with all the details...but a picture speaks a thousand words, so here are a few to give you a taste of our fabulous time there!
