Dad's farewell lunch!

After several months without a job, my dad recently got offered a teaching position at Tuskeegee University in Alabama so he will be relocating along with my mom and my sister; they will be moving to Auburn, AL within the next few weeks. Needless to say I am completely sad about it, although I know it is the best for them. I get incredibly teary eyed by the sole idea of having my family so far away since we've never been apart... but I guess this was long coming...
My parents are torn as well since this means they will not be able to enjoy their granddaughters and we won't see each other as often... it's a sad thought!
My father will be the first one to leave since he has to start work this coming Monday. He will be driving off tomorrow and is expected to arrive in Alabama on Saturday. As a farewell, we went to have lunch with him at "On the Border", where my sister works. It was nice to spend a few hours with my parents and sister; we talked about all the expectations my dad has about his new job and what this change means for our family... it was bittersweet....
I have plans to go visit my parents in Alabama within the next couple of months, however for now, I can only wish them well and get used to the idea of missing them!
Good luck dad! I will miss you so much but wish you so well in your new life!
