Helping Kids Prepare for a Move

In case you haven't heard, sometime this month we will be packing up our home of the last six years and relocating to another state. (I say sometime, because we don't have a house to move into yet. House buying is challenging. Someday I will fill you in on our saga.) I have decided I am in a state of denial. I know we will be leaving, but I just can't dwell on it. However, I also know I need to help our children get ready for the move. Here are a few things we have done to help ease the transition.
1) We have visited the town we will be moving to and the school Peachy will be attending. This way the move is not just an abstract concept we talk about.
2) We have been trying to spend as much time as possible with our friends.
3) The girls and I sat down and made a list of everything we wanted to do here before the move. I wish I had taken pictures of all of the activities, but we have been having a blast visiting some of our favorite spots in town.

  1. We did this too and the kids still remember the "lasts" before moving. The list made for great memories. Savor them!
