We thought that moving to Connecticut was a good idea.
We knew that Amanda would miss out on the experience of our backyard swimming pool. We knew it would be hard for her to leave friends and family in Houston.
We also knew that she'd probably enjoy the snow, skiing, the four seasons, and being closer to our family in Virginia.
All things are true.
Even though she's now lived away from Texas for five and half years (here and in Oregon), and only lived in Texas for four years, she considers herself a Texan. She loves Texas.
We were just watching Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader. The second grade question posed was "In what U.S. city is the Alamo?"
Terry turned to Amanda and asked for her answer. "What? I don't know. That's not a second grade question. What's an Alamo?"
Oh dear. At least I think that she knows what a bluebonnet is, and she does bleed maroon and white.
