She also has course work to complete in the next couple of weeks too and will also be wanting to catch up with everyone she's missed the past months!
Where is your original home? Will you be traveling a lot on your furlough? How about kids....in some ways they're the most resilient and in other ways have the toughest adjustments.
We are traveling quite a bit. We start off in Florida for about 2 months at my inlaws', then from there we have friends, family and churches in Mississippi, Texas, California, Washington, Idaho, Missouri, Arkansas, Wisconsin, and Michigan, and we're taking a little family breather trip to DC/Virginia too.
California is home to me, but my parents moved to Idaho after I got married, so it's just church family there now.
We have 4 kids, who aren't really excited about going to America, since they've lived longer here (3 were born in the States, but they were 4, 2, and 16 months when we moved here, and they're now 10, almost 9, and 7... #4 was born here and he's 5 now). Hopefully they'll enjoy seeing the country, and I'm praying they'll be able to make some friends along the way.
