A little bit of red...and a bit of the "blues"


As everyone knows, our granddaughter, Caralynn, was born on January 8, 2010. We are so excited to have her in our family....the only bad thing is, our daughter, Britnee, lives in Olympia, Washington and we live in Fort Collins, Colorado. We moved to Colorado almost 4 years ago, to help our son, Bradley, get through some pretty tough situations that he was in. Bradley is doing very well now, and as a matter of fact, has moved back to Vancouver, and is attending Clark College. We even got a letter from Clark stating that he is in the top 5% of the student body in grades. My dilemma...do we move back to Vancouver and be near our family or stay here in Fort Collins? I know it is very hard for teenagers to move...Bristyn is very torn, she is 15 and does not want to move, it took her 2 years to get used to Fort Collins and doesn't want to go through moving again. Brenton wants to move...and I just want to be near my older kids. I know that we won't always be near our kids and grandkids, but I so miss Vancouver and I also have some very close friendships there. I NEED HELP!!! Oh, and Mike, he will do whatever the rest of us decides!! He is the best husband!!

That is a tough call, but I think if it were me, I would move...there is nothing more important in life then being with family...you won't always have the chance.

Diana, I think you already know what you want to do!! Bristyn has TONS of friends back in Vancouver so she will ajust very quickly. Vancouver is home and you know that's where you want to be the most. You know I'll be jealous, but I'll also get to see you more if you do move back. Love you!!

That is a tough one...I know there are a lot of people that would be happy to have you move back. I would if I still lived there. And to be close to your grandbaby...good luck! I have a house you can buy :)

I think you should move back to Vancouver! This is your TRUE home... isn't it????? I can totally understand how Brityn feels though, so THAT is hard!

Good Luck deciding!!!!

That's a tough one! When we talk about moving back to Vancouver Austin says "let's go" and Arianne bursts into tears... Good luck! You'll make the right decision!

You had your fun in Fort Collins. It's time to come home. My parents moved me my senior year in highschool to a place i knew NOBODY so I am a little less sympathetic to the kids deliema. Plus I can see you more. I'm going to start looking for you a home in my ward. Now THAT would be awesome! And you could be with JoDee too!
