It has happened, my 6 year old daughter no longer wants to be known by her Polish name. She wants to be known only as her American name. When we ask what about (K), where is she? She says she's back in Poland. I've read this once before on a fellow blogger's blog, but I didn't think it would happen to ours since they're older. How sad, we've called her by her Polish name from day one, and her brother has called her that forever. Speaking of her brother, he keeps switching back and forth from which name he wants to use. How confusing this must be for them.
Otherwise, they're doing great. Just counting down the days 'til school ends and summer vacation begins!
Oh, and I start my new job on Wednesday! Yahoo!!!! Life is grand!

So much has happened, I don't know where to begin. I guess the best would be, as the song says, "start at the very beginning..."
One of my daughter's spirit fridays' at school was crazy hair day. Many of the kids did multi ponytails and colored their hair, but not my girl! She went all out with her craziness.
We then decided to move out of state and back closer to family. So of course the kids had to say good bye to their friends at school.
And we said good-bye to our friends and neighbors:
We had the fun of loading our moving truck ourselves amongst sun and snow. Fortunately, we didn't have to load while it was snowing.
We arrived to our new destination in time to celebrate Easter and Praise our Lord for all he's done for us and watched over us.
The kids are enrolled in their new schools and fitting in easily. They're both very social kids. Although it was a little tougher for Bartek this time around. But they're doing great.
Our house was up for sale and sold within 30 days, the buyers wanted to take advantage of being under contract by April 30th, so we have a closing to look forward to at the end of May.
And yesterday I was offered a job position that I've been interviewing for for the past month, and I accepted!
Life is good, and we're loving living it!
I hope this will hold people for a little while. I would imagine this summer we'll have plenty to post as we're closer to family and have a lot of things planned to do.
