Two and a half years ago, we made a huge decision and moved our little family 2,000 miles away. Away from our home. Away from our families. Away from our history. We wanted something different for our children than what one usually finds in southern California. So we packed up, said goodbye, and headed… Continue reading Helpful Ideas on Moving Long Distance with Kids
