Just to add to my previous reply...
Now that she's almost 5, she and her older brother will be spending the whole summer vacation at GP. She CAN'T WAIT! She makes plans with her grandma on the phone. Sure she will miss us. Maybe she'll even cry. But I'm sure she'll make memories that will last for a lifetime. We can't afford to send them over every summer... it's very expensive. It would be much easier (and cheaper) for me to keep them here. But I had amazing childhood experiences at my grandmother's and I love her dearly. I want to give my children the gift of time spend with their grandparents.
I can so totally relate to this!! :) So glad you're doing this, I'm sure they will love it there!

It's the kind of childhood I had and would really hope for my children to have the chance to have similar experiences, although that may be hard if not impossible.
