“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” – Andre Gide
You may have wondered why this blog suddenly turned silent. Our lives changed about a month ago, when my husband got offered a new job. We will be moving to Nashville, TN, this August, where he will be teaching and administering at Vanderbilt University’s Divinity School.
Although we are excited about this big change, right now I feel like this:
“All great changes are preceded by chaos.” -Deepak Chopra
For the last moth, we’ve been selling our house, trying to find one in Nashville, I’ve visited Nashville to find schools for the girls, and on top of that, we’ve been getting ready for a visit to South Africa/Botswana/Zambia, which we planned a long time ago.
This will be a summer to remember!
The MotherTongues website will stay open for business (most of the time!), with Kallie shipping the t-shirts, aprons, socks, etc. to their new homes all over the world. In August, MotherTongues will move south. If you are ordering MotherTongues gear as gifts, please plan on a few extra days for shipping this summer. And the MotherTongues blog will be back as soon as I get the kids settled in their new schools.
Now wish us luck on this roller coaster summer. Next on the agenda: 34 hours of traveling (me and our 2 kids), to a freezing winter vacation in South Africa…
