It was a relaxing time and nice to see the states after nearly 2 years. The shopping overwhelmed me at first, with so much stuff in every store … especially craft things and books that are hard to find. In the end I did get a few things.
We spent most days playing out in the fresh air and doing some schoolwork. One day it was warm and springish and the next it snowed 6+ inches! We had a blast sledding and then it warmed again.
Of course the most exciting thing was news from Bryan that he knows our next assignment. It’s at the NATO school in Spain! I don’t think the news has really sunk in.
A week later and we found ourselves at BWI trying for a spot on the rotator to Ramstein. Mom and dad waited with us as the 156 seats weren’t a shoe in. In fact, it filled up! And we were aboard, ready for our next continent and a visit with Bethany.
