There has been quite a bit of upheaval in my life as of late.  There comes the expected chaos of the beginning of a new school year, when I'm suddenly more in demand as both a wife and nanny.  Added to that are a few life changes that are taking on a whole new dimension.  Richard has transitioned from his previous position as High School German teacher, to the Middle/High School librarian and computers teacher.   After some back and forth I'm now preparing to step into the position of Forensics coach for the Middle School.  These are all such good and exciting things, but the others are a little more bittersweet.

My father is transferring offices at work, from Wisconsin all the way to Florida, so it has been quite the summer preparing my parents for their big move.  My sister is joining them, hoping to further her education closer to the beach.  I'm excited for them all, and for the option of a beach vacation in the middle of a Wisconsin winter, but it will be sad to see them leave.  No more Thursday lunches with Dad, or a quick drive over to the house for a play date with Mom and Daisy.  With this move, it feels as if I'll be the last one left.  The only family that remains here is the one I have made and the one I have married into.

Everything is all so exciting and scary and sad all at once.
