going {home}

We're packing it up
and
 heading home.


Well, not truly HOME-home, because neither my husband nor I grew up there,

BUT, Texas is where:
I moved to in 8th grade ... and stayed
 (my dad was military, so I was used to moving EVERY.three.YEARS).
Where I fell in love back in 1993 with my amazing husband,
had our first born,
and then our second,
and then eight years after our second decided, "Hey! let's have a third".
Where we owned our first and second home,
made many friends that became "our family",
started my first (and second, and third) careers.
Where my brother recently moved back to (even though he'll be FIVE hours away)
 and my other brother is moving to this Spring.
(Now we just need to pack up mom and get her there too.)

so yes, 
we are going HOME.
Back to the same city.
Back to the same schools.
Back to friends and "family" we've known for
all the years we've been married,
 celebrated many holidays with,
and who watched our kids grow up.
Back to an area we know and love.
Back to the CI team who diagnosed Aiden and his first
AH.MAZING auditory verbal therapist.
(you know, the one who doubled as my own personal counselor for the first 8 months of A's life)
Back to Kat and Thomas and Sid.
(all I can say is wine+a great friendship between us AND our kids+sunshine and patios and pools=pure bliss)

All my kids are excited.
especially aiden who truly has no clue,
yet tells me nearly everyday,
"Mom stop {insert whatever it is I'm doing}. We have to pack for Texas!"
oh and Ryan.
Beyond excited to go back to the friends he's known since he was SIX.
and Kailyn.
well, she's a little more apprehensive. She left in 2nd grade, now she's in 6th
(enough said).
she's been reconnecting with all her friends there through texts though; she's excited too.

We're all excited.

As another chapter comes to an end,
another book begins to open.
Life is a journey.
Enjoy the ride.

I'm sad and happy at the same time. Sad that you are leaving Ohio, but happy that you are going home.
I look forward to hearing all the amazing things that Aiden will do. I am so glad we had a chance to meet in person and that Jordan and Aiden got to play together.
Best of Luck to you and your family.

Since eyes are the most important organ of a human body and so vision is the priceless gift of nature. Many ignore to care for their eyes in regular ways and ultimately require going for eye treatment or even go up to surgery level. The other terms of "eye surgery" are "ocular or Orogolomistician surgery". This type of surgery is typically done on the adnexa of an eye or on the eye by an ophthalmic surgeon.
