Hello from the other side...

...of the world.

We're still here in Korea. In the winter. Being cold.

The kids are disappointed that we have not gotten much snow at all this winter. The most we got was on Thanksgiving morning, and since then it's just been flurries every now and then.

To make it up to them, we went to a nearby sledding hill where they make snow. Josh had taken a day of leave during the week and we were literally the only people there.

The guy running it was very nice, and tried to cater the music they played to us. Lots of AC/DC and songs from the Frozen soundtrack.

It's the thought that counts, right?

Between cheerleading, basketball, and AWANA, the kids' schedules are forcing me out of my hermit-hood. I suppose it's for the best since they tend to get a little stir-crazy hanging out in the apartment.
We've also met some new friends that we meet up with at the base gym to get more wiggles out.

Today I was contemplating this strange fact:
Any day now, Josh will get an e-mail.
This e-mail will tell him that he has a new assignment in the personnel system.
Then, he will log in to said system and find out where we are going to live for the next few years.

I know that's how the system works-- it's just when I stop to think about it, it seems like an odd thing to consider. Some e-mail arriving who-knows-when will tell me where I'll be living 5 months from now.

The military life is never dull.

Except, of course, when it is.

So. Speaking of dull.

My daughter married an army doc and while they know they'll be in WA for another 3 years, there's some sort of odd rotation next year that she's waiting to hear about. Lots and lots of waiting when it comes to military life. I hope you are headed somewhere you want to be headed : )

Come back to Michigan, we got plenty of the white stuff! Hopefully it was the last dump before spring arrives. So excited about seeing you all before your next assignment, wherever it happens to be?! Love you and miss you! Mama

Joyce, I've often wondered how strange the military life must seem to someone new to it! Hope she's adjusting well!

Mom-- we never said we were coming to MI. Are you trying out the power of positive thinking? ;)

How exciting, yet nerve wracking! I can't wait to hear where your next adventure is!

I know you don't know me! But I enjoy reading your blog and learning about a lifestyle that's different from mine. I just wanted you to know that I have been praying for you every time I hear news stories concerning Korea. Thanks for sharing your life journey with us!

Kristine, I am so humbled that you pray for us. Thank you!
