The other day I asked you why I was sharing photos of my home town in New Hampshire?
Well, after much soul searching and an emotional 6 months we've decided that once I have my 25 years with Albuquerque Public Schools, which will be in 2015, we are moving back to New England.
In New Hampshire live my mom, two sisters and two nieces, one that has three boys around Sam's age. In Maine I have a cousin, and in New Jersey I have a nephew with two little girls around Sam's age too.
Also living in the east (Tennessee) are my mother-in-law, a sister-in-law and her family and in North Carolina is a brother and his wife.
I also still keep in touch with many friends from high school who live in the area.
We will probably stay in my home town of Lincoln, New Hampshire for the first year, just so we can get settled, learn the area better and figure out where exactly we want to live, but I am guessing it will be somewhere around southern New Hampshire, eastern Vermont or northern Massachusetts. My home town is a little too far north, gets TONS of snow and is too far away from the other relatives.
We want Sam to have a small town atmosphere to grow up in and to be around more relatives. I also miss the green and the beautiful foliage in the fall.
So, I know it is a long way off, but we are starting to save and plan now. One of our big decisions is not to put any more money (then necessary) into this house and start saving every nickle and dime.
It's also time to see if this is God's plan for my life. I hope He shows me clearly if this is the right path. I need a lot of guidance on this one.
If there is anybody else out there that has made a giant move, I'd love some advice.
