The singapore saighs are moving back to minnesota.
Minnesota has always been our home, but our 4-year-old has spent a majority of her life in Singapore. So, this news is bittersweet and we're now having to explain to Linna that we won't be returning to Singapore. I know that kids are very resilient, and we'll make this transition extremely positive for Linna, but we're currently making a lot of big changes and decisions. We have to get Linna registered for a new preschool, find a new house, etc... All while preparing for the arrival of Baby Saigh #2. Nothing like cramming some major life decisions into a few short weeks, huh?!
Some people will be hearing this news for the first time, while others have known that this was a possibility for a little while now. We'll have a lot more to tell you all in the coming weeks, but we just wanted to share this news as we start our move back home to Minnesota. Our family has been incredibly lucky to have had the experiences that we've had during our three years in Singapore. We've made lifelong friends from around the world, traveled to countries that we never imagined possible, and have experienced a life that most will only dream about. Our daughter has also experienced three years that I hope she'll always remember. We are SO incredibly lucky.
But the time has come for us to move back home. The life of an expat family can be filled with unexpected moves, job changes, and difficult decisions. It hasn't been easy living 10,000+ miles away from our loved ones, so we are excited to get back to our "simple" Minnesota life.
Stay tuned for more to come...
