Bolling AFB, Washington DC!
Woohoo! We are going to the East Coast. We will get to see sites we've never seen before (except for Scott who visited DC on his senior class trip). We will once again see four seasons and colorful fall leaves. We will be wearing shoes and hats, coats and mittens. We will be driving in the snow and the ice. We will be suffering in the cold and and wondering why the days are so short. WAIT! What are we thinking?!
No, really we are excited; this is a good thing. We have loved our time on Guam and hope to come back some day but it is time for Scott to move forward in his career. Scott will be out of his current field of pharmacy and entering into a new direction, at least for 4 years. Scott's new title will be Chief of Homeland Defense Operations. Scott will be working for the Surgeon General in the Medical Readiness Department. Kudos to Scott for being competitively selected for this position. We're so proud of you!
I think we all have things we are missing and ready to enjoy once again back in the states. I am excited to think of so many homeschool field trips we can partake in ~ really learn firsthand. We have so many restaurants that we miss and can't wait to visit too. Best of all, we have friends who currently live in Alexandria we are excited to see again and family in Ohio who will be able to visit us much more often than they have been able to the past 6 years.
Now I have to ask: who can provide me with all the important details about where to live, where there are good schools (if we should choose to stop homeschooling), and all those other must-know-before-moving-to-DC tidbits? Scott and I would appreciate any information that can help us avoid making a bad decision in our rush to set up our new household.Mark, Amy, and Kari: We did try to call you several times with our news before we posted but we just couldn't hold it in any longer!
