Way back when, Robin and I began our efforts to return to Minnesota. Through job applications, interviews, daycare and apartment searches, I failed to realize how hard it would be to say goodbye to so many people that we love so dearly. The past week has been loaded with goodbyes, last times, and lots and lots of tears. I lack the writing skill to appropriately convey just how difficult it will be to walk away from friends, and there are few photos--rather than photograph moments during the past few weeks, I have chosen to participate. However, let it be known that as excited as we are to return to the place that never stopped being home, leaving Austin will be the hardest thing I have done in a very long time.

  1. Reflecting on how hard it was for us to say good bye to y'all tonight I started thinking about how you have had to do this so many times in the last week while at the same time planning a cross-country move and being the most kickass mom I have ever met ... You are an extraordinary teacher, friend, and mother and I consider myself so lucky to know you. To quote Oliver: We love you guys a green bus!
