We leave tomorrow. We've been here for almost five years. When we arrived, my son was going into the fourth grade:
My daughter was going into PreK:
And now they're 14 and 9.
We've experienced your snow:
And your tornadoes:
We always had a blast at the zoo:
And the State Fair:
My daughter learned to ride a two-wheeler bike here:
And my husband deployed multiple times:
Not many people seem to know how to drive properly here. But they do know how to cook. We've enjoyed several restaurants. (This is from Nic's Grill. It was featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives and there's usually always a line out the door. Get there right when it opens at 1030! The burgers are worth it!)
We're leaving you with mostly good memories.
My kids did a lot of growing up here. And they'll miss you. We all will.
I'm not sure if we'll ever be back. But I do know if I ever hear about tornados?
I'll think of you.
