A Bitter/Sweet Day

Today was one of those bitter/sweet days. My sister Amy left today to move to PA. Her husband, Luke, was accepted into Med school at Temple University in Philly. We don't know when we will see her family again, since they will be poor med school students, so that is the sad part. I am so happy that he was accepted to a great school and everything is working out. We have done everything possible to stay in contact on a regular basis, since my neice and nephew will grow up not knowing us well. Kyrie is almost 2 1/2 so she may or may not remember us. But Ryan is not quite 3 months old, so he won't remember us. That makes me sad! But we hope to see them next summer, so we'll see how it goes. Just part of life! But they will be close to some family in PA and MD, so we are glad they will have someone that they can spend some holidays with. We will miss you Amy!

What a cute family!
Just send pictures frequently and make sure (AMY!) shares them with her kids. My children know their aunts and uncles and cousins that they don't see very often becuase they see lots of pictures. It helps, plus then you know what's going on in each other's lives.

I agree with Tanya it is important that they see pictures and you need to talk to them about their family that is far away. I live far from my family and we get to see some of them often but others we don't see so much. My boys love to talk about their cousins and uncles and see them on the blogs. That way when they do see each other they already know who it is.
