I think this is my first post out of friendslock, but we're planning a big move to Ohio in 6 weeks. mr. flea was offered an excellent job rather suddenly, and we'll be moving to Cincinnati. This has many excellent aspects - we will be closer to family, especially the children's cousins (only an hour away!) and grandparents; mr. flea gets a nice raise, a steady job with excellent benefits and a fair amount of tenure doing work he really likes with excellent people; we have many friends still in Cincinnati from when we lived there in the late 1990s. On the down side, there is a lot of work. On the serious down side, we will be leaving the wonderful neighbors and elementary school community we have had in Athens.

I wrote to the kids' teachers today to tell them about the move. And now I'm crying at my desk because Casper's art teacher wrote such a sweet note. "[Casper] has a real gift in art and I truly hope that she continues to pursue it. She is really special." "I would love to see some pictures of Casper’s art as she grows up."

(Like we could possibly stop Casper from continuing to make art. But we're taking her away from lovely Miss D.!)

Ohhh, that teacher's note. How lovely and how sad.

Enjoy Cincinnati; that's the Big City my parents go to when they want to have fun. (Well, that or Indianapolis.)

Congratulations! Moving is awful but it must be a relief to have a definite plan in place (and such a good one too). I hadn't realized you had lived in Cincinnati before.

Wow, big news! (Am trying to catch up after months on Internet hiatus.) I'm sorry that you have to leave your lovely house & community, but hope you find something just as good in Ohio.
