I love this Blog. I recorded our adventures when our family lived in Mexico from July 2008 to July 2009. We then returned for 5 weeks in Summer 2010. This blog was and is our family history and also a resource for other families looking to raise kids abroad for a limited period of time.

Oldest Son is now in 6th grade and Youngest Son is in 3rd Grade. They are both still fluent in Spanish - we have created opportunities to maintain their bilingual status.

We start a new family dynamic in April 2012. Husband is commuting between Houston and Dallas weekly - similar to what I did the year we were in Mexico.

I am starting a new blog. I think I can help other families who choose the Commuter Family option. And once again, I capture our family history. And I just like blogging - when I have something of interest to say.

American Mommy in Mexico ends. For now. Tear Drop. Expect to SOB again some day.
"I am mid-40s Mommy to Oldest Son (age 10) and Youngest Son (age 8). I am married to Husband who is 50ish. We both earn a living in small independent businesses. We have a typical kid juggling existence but look for a slightly different life path when possible ..."

I am now Mommy with Commuter Husband.

How was your entire move to Mexico? Did you hire any professional removalists? When I moved to Australia, we had professionals to help us with moving and storage and they were good but we plan to move to another place again and we're thinking of hiring them again..
