We moved to Kansas for two reasons.
First was we needed a change. Our marriage and lives were in a bog. If change did not come in one way, it would come in another. We loved Flagstaff. We were close to extended family. Our children had excellent high school experiences there. Seven years and a great deal of investing in the community was only producing negative results.
Second, we needed different jobs. Getting hired in Flagstaff, for my husband, was next to impossible. He started to teach school, but was so overloaded with troubled student whom no one else would take, he was done in a year. He needed someplace that offered the type of work that he was interested in and enjoyed.
That is how we ended up in Kansas.
