Big changes

This is where I spent last weekend....

Plum Island
Actually, all these photos are just from Sunday at the coast. 
Plum Island in Newburyport, MA to be exact.

Try to tell me this isn't absolutely gorgeous!

So, what on earth were John and I doing in New England?

Plum Island
Besides getting up at 5am (on daylight savings time, so it felt like 4am)
to watch the sun rise over the ocean....

Plum Island
Besides seeing coyotes and snowy owls....


Plum Island
Besides collecting shells for Coralee and Haakon.....


Ray's seafood

Besides eating awesome food at Ray's seafood....

Plum Island

and enjoying some time without the two 'big' kids.....

Plum Island

Mainly we were there to look at houses.
That's right we're moving!
In just a couple weeks, 
we'll be hauling all our stuff half way across the country
from Minnesota to New Hampshire.
It was less then two years ago when we did this move, and then this move, 
and now here we go again.
Only this time, we are committing to settling down.
We have about a year and a half before Coralee starts kindergarten, 
so we plan on spending the next year renting, while we figure out a good neighborhood 
and school district, to eventually buy in. 
And that will be the END of moving for (hopefully) a very long time. 

Never in my life have I had such strong opposing feelings about something. 
New Hampshire (all of New England really) is so beautiful, with so many fun things to do.
I still get four seasons, there are mountains, the ocean, and some really cool cities, all reasonably close by.
It's amazing.
BUT
It's half way across the country from my entire family :(
The kids will be half way across the country from all of their cousins
and their Grandma and Grandpa.
It's absolutely heartbreaking. 
I'm so excited to go, and at the same time, 
I so badly want to stay.
