January 19th, 2012
As I sit here writing this, I actually have several projects going at once!! I am in charge of digitizing all of our old family photos. I'm also in charge of getting our blog up to date completely before we leave, so I'm scanning while I'm blogging! If you find an error in my typing, don't be too hard on me - I don't claim to be great at double tasking! :)
Anyway, we thought we were busy before, but life has certainly picked up the pace!! Packing, projects, packing, planning, packing (did I mention we're doing a lot of packing! :) Yes, it's hard to believe we'll be in Germany before we know it - just a few more days left!! We are so thankful to everyone back here on the home front who is making it possible for us to be gone. We couldn't do it without them - thank you!!! Okay, I hope I'm not going overboard with exclamation points - I guess there's just a lot of excitement right now! We are also very thankful for daddy's safe arrival in Germany - God is so good to us. What a blessing. We miss him very much, but are so excited to be able to see him again shortly. And the time will go by very quickly as we have MUCH to be done and finish up this next week - prayers would be appreciated - thank you!!
Face-time works out great and certainly makes being separated much easier. It's really special to still be able to do family worship with daddy. We even got a tour of his German hotel room - neat!!
Two things before I forget:
First - I had several inquires in regards to Stasia's military ID (here). But to explain further, members of military families when they reach the age of 10 are eligible for their military ID (I remember when I couldn't wait to get mine! :). It is not mandatory in most instances for children, but adults must have them to get on base as well as shop at the base facilities etc. It is mandatory however, that all eligible persons have a valid ID in order to take a military hop (flight) which is how we plan on getting to Germany. I hope I did okay answering questions and that it all makes better sense now!
Second - I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all of you who have commented on our blog!!! I know for the most part anyway that we don't often respond, but we do read all of the comments and they are greatly enjoyed and appreciated. Keep them coming - we love to hear from our readers!!
Now without further ado I will get some new posts up and coming. This is going to be a full week of blog posts! Also, be sure to check back often while we're away. I plan on keeping you frequently informed of our adventures in travel and European living (really, I do!! :).
Because He Lives,
Savannah ~ for all the rest!
