We are back, and getting settled in...

Well, sort of... we are living in a hotel until post housing is available (there are 4 families in front of us for homes).  We will be living in a hotel, don't know why they call it a suite, it is one room, two beds and a kitchenette.  We will also have a inflatable mattress for our eldest child.  Hopefully we will be here for less than two months!  

Our homeschooling curriculum is in our Household Goods Storage in The North, hmmm, somewhere in the north... so I made it over to the post library and checked out:

  • Mathematics (High School General)
  • Spanish (Berlitz)
  • Anatomy (Skeletal Systems)
  • Art (Sketching the Skeletal Systems)
  • Government (U.S. Constitution)
  • Language Arts (Poetry and ACT SAT prep Grammar)

Beginning School in a hotel, will be a challenge, but what a blessing it will be to home school during this transition, what a mess it would be to get an 8th grader and a Sophomore to two separate schools with one vehicle, and not knowing our way around.  God is indeed good!

We are LOVING Fort Bliss, and ate an an incredible Mexican Restaurant last night.  The post bowling alley was really great this week too.  The weather in very nice and not unbearable.  I am so thankful God placed some great mountains around the post, it makes for great views as we go on our daily walks. 

I will try to take some time to re-cap the summer months that we spent apart.  I am looking franticly for my cord that connects my camera to my computer.

  1. Welcome, welcome!! I feel like I should try to meet you somewhere sometime. Hmm, my mom is coming to town Fri and will be here through Wed. Have you heard about the chaplain/chaplain assistant wives coffee later this month? Here is the info in the e-mail I got.

    22 Sept, 1830, will be the first meeting of chaplain UMT wives for this year. Come meet the new gals and relax and have some fun. Please bring a "sweet-something" to share. We'll be in bldg 444, near Main Post Chapel (Center Chapel One) on Sheridan Rd. There will be watchcare available if you need it...I'll ask for a headcount in a later email.

    Do you plan to come to PWOC? Well, I'm looking forward to running into you sometime soon! Heck, you guys should come over for dinner sometime, too. Living in a hotel does not = easy cooking. I'll be sure to check in again after my mom's visit.
