Home is Where the Yarn Is



It's official!  The KPG fam is moving to Southern Vermont! I'm sure you all have noticed that I've been notably absent from the Rav group and podcasting.  My blogging and social media have waned as well.  Well, this is one of the reasons (along with a death in the family).

Hubby accepted a wonderful position with a pretty terrific company in VT!  Last weekend we toured the area to scout out neighborhoods.  And although we could've lived in Mass. or NH as well, we chose VT because of their NUMBER 1 Ranking in the US for Developmental Disability Services (ie.. our son's Autism).  If we thought PA has been great, VT will blow us away in terms of special education and (free)health services for our son. In fact, the school our son will attend is SO pro-active, we've already begun the process of them reviewing his IEP (even though we haven't officially moved yet - they are on top of things!).

Also, DH is in love with the company he'll be working for.  He knows many of his future co-workers already from the industry and is very excited to join the team!  And I'm excited for him!

As for me - I'll go wherever DH goes. :)  Home is where the heart is.  And certainly, home will be wherever the yarn is. ;)  Now it's time to scout out the local knitting scene!!! :)

So hang on, loyal KPG fans!  I'll be back to socializing online and podcasting this fall when all of the dust has settled and the kiddos are in school.  I'm excited to come back to podcasting and look forward to it!!

Knit On!

  1. Sounds wonderful! I know when our son was diagnosed with autism we got a HUGE amount of help in the UK. It really helped in the early years. Now we're in South Africa and whilst there is less help, the schools have been amazing! You have to go where your children can grow, develop and blossom! Good luck!!!! xxx

  3. I am so happy about the services Vermont offers. When I first heard a move was possible, your son was my first thought ~ transitions are difficult for kids in the best of circumstances. What a wonderful thing for all of this to fall into place!

  10. Yes, you are right, home is where the yarn is. Believe me, I know, I went all the way from MA to Germany 18 years ago and have been here ever since. We can always make the best of every situation as long as we have our family with us. hugs!!
