Now this did not catch us by surprise. The world is shrinking. Global citizens are increasingly the norm, not the exception. It was actually just a matter of time before it (the move) happened. Our family had been preparing for it -- from my career choices and extra curricular activities to choosing Little Man’s preschool to giving our reliable household angel a head’s up. It was our hope that with enough preparation and proper alignment, the transplanting of our roots would be as seamless and painless as possible, particularly for our Little Man.
