What’s the hardest thing about picking up and moving far, far away? Hands down. No contest.

Christmas last year with our Divas

And there’s Sean, a senior now at Sonoma State, grown ever so big and wise from that little boy I so loved, and Sam, who is just beginning a new phase and adventure and if our highest wishes can come true they’re his for the taking.

So. What I propose to do is regale them with tales of the Great Prairies and untold lakes, of the Aurora Borealis, and the SNOW!

Well, California kids think snow is a ticket to fairy land.

And then there’s that great extended family they have never met.

Cousin Debbie's North Dakota farm

And all the perks that go with family and farms.

The twins Nolan and Aspen and brother Alex

La Ditzy and Kjelsey (Cousins Debbie and Kjelsey)

Betcha didn’t know I had a cousin who is a clown? And who gives her grandchildren horse rides on her farm?

KIDDER (also known as Kenny)

And even has a son who is a clown! How special is that!

So you can see how much fun it will be when you come to visit Grandma and Grandpa. And here ‘s the house in Fergus Falls which will be your home away from home (minus the for sale sign – it’s already ours).

Mt. Faith

So today we are driving to Carmel to spend some quality time with Cassidy Rose and Haley Marie – (and Tony and Jenny and Sheila). I have to keep telling myself, it’s not the time, it’s the quality.
