This is a letter T wrote to her Nana:
We love you. We miss you. I am having fun with mom's cameras. We can't wait to see you next week.

This is a letter T wrote to her Nana:
Yesterday was our first full day in Indiana. We went to S's mom's house to surprise her and his brother. After staying there for a while, we went to visit my oldest son's grave. It had been a while since we were there. A.A got a little upset, but it was not as bad as the last time we went. K (my sister-in-law) put a small beautiful baby angel and a small baby with a rattle figure on the bottom of his headstone.
Afterwards, we went to my cousin's house. We hadn't been there in a while and A.A was a little disappointed that her son wasn't home. T had fun playing with her daughter though. After chatting with her for a bit, we decided to go back to S's mom's house.
Before going back to S's sister's house, we drove around town checking out different places we used to go to before we moved to Tennessee. Things sure have changed around here in the last two and a half years. People have been moving out left and right because the jobs that were here before we left are gone now. I couldn't believe how many empty houses there were. The city took out the park by the old police station. I did go by my aunt's old house. It hasn't changed much at all. I guess no matter how much some things change, other things stay the same.
Hi! This is a Double A post.
Yesterday uncle R said his two trucks are T's, R's and mine. He will pick T and I up in his white truck and we will fix the black truck today. I am excited!!

Hello! We made it to S's home town and are visiting with them for a little bit. It is so hot here right now! At least it's a bit better than it was last night. The kids and Spot were on their best behaviors. I was so proud of them! Once we got here, I made a video and T helped me edit it. She is going to be my little producer, I can tell already!
Spot found him a buddy and they play well together.
There is so much to do today, I don't know where to start.

It has been a while since I have posted to this blog, but I am back! A lot has happened in the last seven months. I have been working, my uncle has moved closer and I have been making time for my family. My nephew was born a little over two months ago and he is such a cutie! I am not just saying that because he is my nephew either. I have been making a lot of trips to Indiana and we have been getting to know each other. The last time I went to Indiana, he stayed up longer than he did before. We had so much fun playing together. I had him grinning, laughing and cooing at me. I didn't want to leave when it was time to go, he didn't want me to leave either.
I have a relative in Indiana that has been really sick for the last month and a half. In the wake of that, my family and I have decided to move back to Indiana to help her out. The last week I have been packing and am almost ready to go. It is so hard for me to leave this place behind. I have been so happy and blessed here. I have to keep reminding myself that I have family here, too and I can always come back to visit. When I remind myself of that, I do feel a little better. Moving back to Indiana is something that I need to do at this time and it can't be helped.
If you are reading this, mom, I love you and I'll miss you like crazy. I am glad that you understand why I need to move back at this time. Thank goodness for modern time technology. We have email, pictures and videos to help pass the time in between visits so look for them over crowding your email. I may even send more email to you than what you get in your spam mail. There is always a phone, too. I love you, mom!
I am going to finish the last bit of packing I need to do before we go.
