We recently moved from Georgia to the Chicago area. We actually moved three weeks ago, so we’re still in the middle of boxes, packing material, putting things away, and learning all we need to know in our new area.
We love it so far, but it has been hard on all of us, and most especially on our little boy. He’s three, so I don’t know how much he understands. What made the move a little easier is that his Gram came with us during the drive and stayed a couple of weeks with us. Buki had such a good time with Gram that he didn’t seem to notice that everything around him had changed completely.
But now that she’s gone home and we’re settling in a little more, he is having a harder time. The hardest part is that he is so desperate for friends. He loves being with other kids, and we simply don’t know that many people here yet. If he hears kids outside playing, he runs to the door and wants to go out. It’s cute, and also a little heartbreaking. I want him to have friends!
We’re also late getting on the ball with the school system here. We didn’t have the internet for two weeks (two weeks!), and that hindered us. But we’d like to get him tested through the school system and see what happens from there.
