First lady Jenny Sanford and several other women moved clothing and boxes from the mansion in Columbia on Friday. In a statement, Sanford said she is moving to the family home on Sullivans Island, some 120 miles east, but will continue working on her marriage.
The first lady and the boys moved to the home at the end of last school year, a few weeks before her husband publicly admitted he'd been having an affair with an Argentine woman he has called his soul mate.
The Sanfords and their sons returned this week from a trip to Europe. The boys had attended a private school in Columbia.
