Wow what a week! We got here late Thursday night (Thursday morning US time) and we’ve been going non-stop since. We’ve had welcome briefs and cultural adaptation classes. We’ve been on a tour of downtown and we’ve walked and walked and walked some more.
We went to housing this morning and got ourselves a house. We can move in Monday. I’m glad because temporary lodging is getting old. We managed to get one of the 4 bedroom townhouses. It’s a little farther from the commissary and exchange, but still a manageable walk until we can get a car.
Lauren started school today. She’s in a classroom that has both first and second graders. They’ve also got a pet rabbit that is free to roam around the room. They have a waiting list for preschool so Miss Katie doesn’t get to go. That’s about it for now. It’s rainy today and all I want to do is curl up with a good book.
