They've gone to a land down under!

My Dad, Mom and three youngest siblings have moved to

AUSTRALIA!

In case this is something new to you let me give you some background info..... My dad was recruited to be a Chiropractor in Australia. The recruiter asked "How would you like to live in Australia?" I think my Dad said something like "Wouldn't that be nice!" Little did he know he was serious. After a process of interviews via phone/web cam, taking the Australian boards and lots of prayer, they decide to go.

My Dad left in July to get things going and my Mom and the kids just left November the 13th (Friday!)

Here Are the pictures from when Dad left.....

Now onto November........

We got to celebrate Mom's birthday before she left. I made one of our traditional Hungarian meals, Stuffed cabbage. Happy Birthday Mom!

Goodbye

Watching them go :(

It was hard to watch them leave! It is so weird that I can't just hop in the car and go to my Mom's whenever I want. This will take some getting used to. I am really going to miss them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited for them and this AMAZING opportunity!


I woke up, just like every other day......but this day was different. As I went out into the world everyone went along with their normal routine. HELLO......DON'T YOU PEOPLE KNOW MY FAMILY IS MOVING HALF WAY ROUND THE WORLD TODAY! But they didn't. When my eye fill with tears they didn't know, they didn't care.


How often are we the people who don't know and don't care? There are people around us everyday who are hurting! I hope we can all try to not get so caught up in ourselves and try to think of others.

WHAT CAN I DO FOR SOMEONE ELSE TODAY?

Just a thought.

I know nothing is the same as having your mom close by, but Chad and I are always looking to hang out and we're family!
