In January 2013, Tony was offered the opportunity to take a position with Cessna in Bangalore, India for two years. This meant that we would have to move the family to the other side of the world to a new county and a new culture. We exhaustively discussed the idea….and I do mean exhaustively. Everyone seemed excited about the idea with a few reservations. After talking with a family with children of similar ages who had done the same thing just two years ago, we decided that we would accept the adventure.
We will be moving to Bangalore in June 2013 and returning to Wichita in June 2015.
As our adventure begins, Annabelle is 10 and just finishing 4th grade. Lillian is 7 and finishing 1st grade. Bennett is 4 and looking forward to pre-kindergarten next year and Flynn is 1, climbing everywhere and generally destroying the whole house.
Just in case you didn’t figure it out, the person writing this blog is Laura, aka Mom, the person completely frazzled by the overwhelming idea of moving a family of six to the other side of the world.
