My big (& only) brother Bryan, Setou, Clara and Baby (debuting in late October) moved a little over an hour away last weekend. It is a little sad but we are so happy that he has found work teaching French in a high school here in NC so reasonably soon. We are so fortunate not only that we will be able to continue to see them weekly but that we are a family that wants to see one another on a regular basis.
I am of course sad that they will now be a little further down the road than they were before but the last time my brother moved away it was a distance of 2 days’ travel by airplane. As usual, it’s all about perspective, and as usual I know that we will be just fine.
After a long day of moving Clara put a then-empty box to good use.
