The reality of our upcoming move is beginning to dawn on the girls. Hannah in particular is feeling quite sad about the idea of leaving her school and friends. She knows that she won’t be at her school next year, but can’t really envisage what life will look like. Consequently she is feeling a bit stressed by the changes.
Of course everybody feels stress during times of change, but Hannah feels it more than many other children.
We have been talking about how we imagine life will be on the farm with her. She is looking forward to having chickens, riding her bike to her grandparents’ house, and having lots of room to play. She is not looking forward to leaving her friends in the mountains and moving away from her house and cousins.
I lived in the same house my entire childhood, and so did the Country Boy so we don’t really understand how she is feeling. I know that once we get there it will be a good thing for our family, but right now I feel a bit guilty about moving her on a whim of ours.
Help me please! How can I help the girls make the adjustment to the country life? All advice gladly received!
