Thoughts from the FPO

I'm sitting in our training centers' library excited to finally have internet.

Our quads (4 mini suites that share a common family room,) are awesome, save for the MckNasty bathroom with peeling paint and a green and red mold on the roof.


The people in our quads are great too! With a JMan (girl though,) and two other families, each with two kids. We're going to have fun!

It was beautiful weather when we got here on Monday, but Tuesday we saw the temperature start to plummet, and the weather is saying we're expecting 6-12 inches of snow this weekend! Insane! My first American snow! {maybe}

I'm exhausted from stimulation overload. There's alot of smiling, laughing, chatting, and getting caught up. Our days will start at 6 and end sometime around 10:30-11.

We'll go to our vaccination clinic soon. Some people have to get 15 shots. I don't think we have to get as many since we are going to the Middle East {there aren't too many insects/pests there.}

There is only me and an older man {going to London, apparently,} in the library.

It took me 72 minutes to load 5 pictures.

My "home," is beautiful. And it's all ours. For 2 months anyways.

We got our address for our Vancouver home, where we will be living for 4 months starting in April, and it is GORGEOUS! I'm so excited! Plus we'll only be 1/2 a mile from our good friends.

Everyone here has a baby. I'm feeling wAy left out.

My Queen sized down comforter doesn't fit on our King bed but our queen sized quilt does. Weird.

We're considering a 2-3 day vacation after our training before my sister's wedding. Beach maybe?

I love my new camera. I just can't get enough of it!

I need snow/rain boots.

I watched a kid drink 4 glasses of sweet tea {Good Lord!} and felt bad for his parents.

We're loving our healthy eating options. More on that later.

Bye ya'll!

Sounds like y'all are settling in nicely. You're going to have such a great time; finally getting into what you love and long to be doing! (catching a hint of jealousy on my end? ;-) Good luck! I'll be praying for y'all!!

It sounds like things are going pretty well so far! I have been praying for you every time I think of it- I know God's going to work through you in awesome ways, even if this is just the training stage.

*You don't have to post this, I'm just letting you know you're on my mind!*
