I guess I am missing my friends, ward, and home tons this week. The kids are starting to adjust and make friends in their school and ward and things are going fine, but I miss the familiarity of it all. I have met some nice moms at the park after school and I know it takes time, but I just miss my friends. I miss working with the Young Women in our ward. Those girls are so AMAZING!

Yes, believe it or not, I miss Sierra Vista. I miss looking out the window and seeing the mountains and the waterfall after the rain or snow. I miss seeing deer on my morning walks and sometimes javelina. I don't miss snakes, scorpions, or vinagaroons. Yuk!! I don't miss cacti either or the dryness of my skin.

I know I need to give it time, but I just want to send a big hug to all my friends in Arizona. Please come see us anytime.

I love you Andrea! I know it does take some time, but it's still hard. Kids make friends so quickly. But for us Moms, it takes a little longer. I miss Sierra Vista too and I was only there for 1 year. It's a beautiful place. You are so adorable, you will make friends quickly! You always do! :) Here's a hug from Mesa, Arizona!

Hug from Hawaii too.
I missed LA when I came to Hawaii. Weird, I know but its whats familiar. I missed family, friends, car...etc. Now I can't imagine leaving Hawaii.
You would miss it here too if you came. I am not gonna give up. Get that bucket and start filling it with money for your trip to see us Rueckerts!

You said what i am thinking. We just spent the weekend looking at homes in Vancouver and I couldn't help but think about how hard the move is going to be for me. I am going to miss my friends and this area so much. My only consolation is that they would all move anyway and leave me stranded in the next few years.
