But here's something I can say. Though it was sad to leave, there are moments when I'm reminded that this is why we moved. Here's one of those moments:
My dad gives horsey rides to both kids and when he gives Jonathan a horsey ride, Elisa often joins in the fun. You can't quite see it in this picture but she has Itty on her shoulders and is following Papa all around the yard. I'm so glad that our kids have the chance to get to know their grandparents (and aunt and uncle too). That really is the reason we moved back and it's so good to be around our families again.
