I've been thinking about this so much lately because we have just moved our children across the country to a new home for the 5th time in 7 years. Such is military life. I often wonder if it's a happier childhood to stay in one home (as I did until I went away to college) or if happiness can be found in each new location. I'm a bit of a worrier, so I worry that my kids will lament the lack of a "family home" when they're grown. My childhood memories are mostly about the house I grew up in, my neighborhood, and the same group of kids from Kindergarten through high school. I worry that my kids will miss out on that type of memory. I worry that my kids won't have an answer to "where are you from?" and that it will somehow make them lacking.
