Almost Wordless Wednesday


As the UK visa application and moving process rolls slowly and excruciatingly on, I am going to be posting a bit infrequently over the next few weeks. Please add me to your feed reader and you'll know right away if I've posted or not. (Just hit that big orange button at the top of the right hand column.) I promise a post explaining everything that is going on by Friday!

Meanwhile, I took some pictures of the Animal at his preschool yesterday. These are his two best friends. Already a ladies' man (as opposed to the more derogatory 'mama's boy'), if I do say so. We are going to miss this school so much! One of my best friends is the director there, I have a great connection with the staff, the Montessori program they run in unparalleled, and it is just a beautiful place. *sniff*

Wordless Wednesday brought to you by 5 Minutes for Mom.
p.s. Yes, I did blur out the girls' faces. No permission, no faces.

  1. First! (Because I can...)

    I've moved many, many times in my life (primarily as a child) but never to another country. I am so excited for you and your kids!

  9. I'm jealous. I would LOVE to move abroad. Probably just as well this has never worked out for us now that we're learning more about what our "special needs" boy will "need." But still...

    I can only imagine how hard it will be to leave a school that you love. I feel that way about our daycare. Our provider is like another mother to my kids and I love seeing how much fun they have at her house (plus - she is the only one who can get them to eat vegetables).

  11. Your lil' dude is so friggin' cute - no wonder he's a ladies man! :-)

    Good luck with the never-ending process of getting ready to move - it's epic what you guys are doing....right on.

    Okay Mrs. Bitchin' - hope you're having a good day and see you around as always....

  12. Moving would be so tough. Mostly because I would have to clean this house.

  13. I love the picture of the "animals"! Having a great preschool is most of the battle it seems.

  15. I still can't believe you're moving. I know you don't live anywhere near me, but I'm going to miss you dammit.

  16. Totally understandable woman. Moving abroad is endless work. I am looking forward to hearing your adventures along the way.

    You will miss the school. Letting go of my intimate connection with the kids' school was perhaps the hardest pill for me to swallow when we moved over here. I didn't speak the language here and conventions are far removed from what I was used to in the states. I had to just let it go and smile like I thought everything was fine. And it worked out.

Thoughts appreciated. Advice welcome. Douche-baggery scoffed at then deleted.
