So there was some serious 'moving on' in more than one sense over the past weekend. Moving on past the Bengals loss yes, but something much bigger than that as well. Jared's dad accepted a new job about six weeks ago, and he flew out there Saturday to start his new venture.

Plus it's hard not to think about future kids, and the relationship they will/will not have with their grandparents. Jared's parents plan on living in their new area at least another 10-12 years, and it may very well end up being a permanent move. It's weird to think that our kids (I know, I'm getting ahead of myself!) could easily be in third grade and only see their grandparents a couple times a year. Jared and I were both blessed to grow up having close relationships with all of our grandparents and we obviously want that for our future mini-me's as well!

So do you live close to most of your family? Just a couple family members? Or are YOU the ones that peaced out and left your family to miss you?! ;) It will be a big change for everyone, and I'm sure figuring out the holiday schedule will be one large headache and a half..... but I won't think about that. Not yet, at least.
Since this post got all kinds of serious, I'll leave with you a couple of awesome photo bombs from Charlie's going-away dinner ... completed by none other than my hubby and his brother.
Charlie- we are going to miss you!!
