Upping the ante

When we’ve described our upcoming travel and moving plans to people, some have said “How exciting!”  Others, perhaps a bit more blunt, have said, “You’re crazy.”  Two dissertations, two adults, and one child will be flying across the Atlantic to try to make the leap from graduate students to paid academics in a whole new country and educational system.  Clearly, however, stakes weren’t high enough yet: I wonder what the comments will be when we add that we’re expecting a second child, to be born next February in England.
