Moving On

TR and the boyz in the 'hood!

The neighbors are moving, this is a tragedy or it soon will be once it becomes real for HT.  They are the only people in the neighborhood who have kids close in age to our boys and HT and Ethan have played together since they were babes.  And they are not just moving across town but to another state, so weekly summer play dates aren't going to be possible anymore.

I know that 4 year olds are very resilient, but every time it is talked about or mentioned HT starts to cry.

Yesterday while Ethan and Sam's mama went to mail off the papers on the house they have bought the boys played outside with TR.

There is a church parking lot just east of our house and the snow plow has piled up all the snow from the last several storms and the boys have had so much fun playing on it, pushing each other off of it and claiming their territory.  Yesterday HT was calling it his snow office.

EM wanted so much to play outside with the boys, but he wasn't happy being out in the cold and the snow so I took him back in the house and he cuddled on the couch with his Auntie.

I'm going to miss them too.  They have been good neighbors and friends and HT and Ethan are at an age now that they can play fairly well together without constant supervision and it has been nice to let them do so.

It's very sad. :( They aren't my neighbors, but we're going to miss them too.

It is sad for kids to lose their playmates. Hopefully they will find new ones too.

Oh no! That is so sad!! When our first daycare closed, we cried and cried over friends that we wouldn't see everyday, but at least we have birthday parties! Maybe skype?? I don't know. I've never done that. So sorry!!

You took some great pictures!

Sorry the neighbors are going. It's always hard to move or have friends move. When my daughter was 3 & 4, she would cry over a friend, pack her backpack, and say she was going to FL to see her friend. Now she barely remembers. I never thought she would forget, but she did.

Hopefully a new family with small kids will move in!

Moving is so hard on everyone. We just moved back home after being away for 1 1/2 years. It's good to be back, but we miss our friends in Texas so very much. It will be hard, but keep in touch and that will make things a bit easier.

Great pics, especially that last one. So cute!
