Handshake

We have our handshake.  In non-foreign service speak that means we found where we are headed next.  No I'm not going to tell just you, that's too easy.  If you can figure out which country's flag this is then you will know where we are going.

So you're trading in the desert for the tropics?!!! You'll at least be much closer to the U.S. but wow!!! What are you going to do for schools? I haven't ever looked closely at this post before, wasn't ever on our list of possibilities; how cool that you will get to explore and know such a complex country!!!

The two older boys will be going to boarding schooling in Vermont. We visited the school last summer, they are really excited. The school was kind enough to do an accelerated admissions process so we knew BEFORE the end of bidding that they had been accepted, if they hadn't been we would have changed our bidding strategy, but I am happy to be close enough to be able to fly up for parent weekends and have them fly to us or the house in San Antonio for holidays. I am currently homeschooling the youngest for 5th grade. I am thinking we will be continuing that through junior high, although there are schools at post considered acceptable for his grade level. Now comes the fun, weeding through all the stuff trying to come in under weight. Carpet auctions aren't helping.

How EXCITING!!!!!
I can not wait to hear all about your new adventure, it sounds like a fascinating country. I wonder if it will remind you of Jakarta :)

So you have been bit by the carpet bug in Oman!! Have you done the "take it home and try it out a while" option? That always blew my mind. Hubs was on a similar panic? spree as we neared the end of the tour. That, and frankincense. He is sure it gets rid of mosquitoes. Thankfully, I do like the smell of it as long as it isn't smoking out the house. When he puts a few nuggets on some coals after grilling here in Windhoek, I could close my eyes and I'm feeling like I'm right back in our yard in Oman. I hope you have lots of wonderful memories of your post there to look back on and squeeze in all that you want to see/do/taste before you head out.
