Learning that I was moving to a completely different state was one of the hardest and weirdest things for me. During the months of September and October my parents dropped a bomb on us children saying, ¨ So we are moving to Colorado for yours father 's job in a few months.¨ We were in such a state of shock that we didn’t know how to react.
