We are in the midst of many changes right now as we transition from our life in Ireland to our new (old?) life back in America. We’ve had a wonderful first two weeks back in America visiting family and friends and places that we have missed in our year abroad. And, just as we are starting to settle into our holiday here in Seattle, it is all coming to an end. Tomorrow Jon and our dog Bota (and Jon’s mom who will act as a travel companion) will drive all the way to San Jose, California in one 16-hour shot so Jon can start his new job on Monday morning. I will be staying on in Seattle with the boys for another two weeks while Jon adjusts to his new new routine at his new job. It’s all just a lot of new.
Along with all of this new, I have decided to transition most of my posts from this blog to my “new” blog at WeLoveTeachGrow.com (this is actually my other blog that I maintain in addition to “To Ireland We Go”). Now that our time living in Ireland is officially over (I’m still not sure how I feel about this little fact) it seems appropriate to re-focus my writing on my new direction. Those of you who have been following this blog have offered me such encouragement and motivation this year so, from the bottom of my heart, thank you! Even though I have never met many of you, you have been a huge source of inspiration for me and I hope we can stay connected through WeLoveTeachGrow.
On to the next adventure we go!
