Tuesday Afternoon

Here's a quick recap of the rest of our second day in Misawa (ME-SAW-WAH). We left the Weasel's Den shortly after noon. Stacia was crashing and I hoped the walk home would work for the 10 minutes in the sun to reset her clock. It worked. HOWEVER, when we got back to the TLF's I decided to stay outside and play....and I really started dozing off....so I'm not sure about it. ::snort:: Seriously, it's nearly 9 p.m. here and everyone is still awake. That's a first since we left WA.

I met a new family as we entered the Weasel's Den. Turns out that we have a common friend who is now stationed in Guam. That was fun. I helped her start a blog. ::snort::

I met another lady at the Weasel's Den who homeschools and has five children. We talked a bit and introduced kids....we'd communicated via email when I was still in TX.

At the playground a mom showed up with 2 cute little girls. I went over to talk with her and it turns out that SHE is another homeschooler whom I had communicated with....she's the head of the homeschool support group here.

It was fun running into folks....and I hope that some of our run ins will become friends.

We walked around base and took photos of funny car names.

I cooked dinner. Jared and I walked to the commissary. Mike picked us up. I will get in shape with all this walking and up and down flights of stairs. ::snort::

Tomorrow I'll attend a spouse breifing and then a class to hopefully get a license to drive. I'm still freaked out RIDING on the left side of the road, but I need to drive so that we can go explore off base. LOL

More photos will have to wait...this computer is not as slick as my laptop and I don't have time to go back and forth to PB if I don't have tabbed browsing. LOL

To jog my memory here are things I need to blog about:
Sticker Shock
Car names
Toilet Adventures
Weasel's Den

Choosing Joy!

So nice how you are meeting folks you know from the internet. How nice you are meeting folks with kids to friend up with your kids.

The adventure has begun and the fun.

Makes these parents hearts glad!.

sounds like the start to your adventure has been good. Excellent that you've already met some homeschoolers!!

I remember a once-in-a-lifetime Spring Break trip to Epcot Center in FL and a ride I took had the song, "It's a Small World" playing...That memory came to mind as I read of the people you have met through the internet and now IRL. I do not believe in coincidence anymore, only divine providence (Is that the right word?). You are in great hands and I too hope more excellent fellowship and friendships are ahead for you and yours!
