I forget that I've been a little hit and miss with the details over the past few...months, so I thought I'd put a little post up about our move.
My husband is a foreign service officer with the U.S. Department of State and we are going to Kiev, Ukraine for a two year post.
We are (mostly) excited because we both served missions in Ukraine about ten years ago. David's Russian skills are excellent, mine are rusty at best, and going around the world with three small children in tow has altered the way I look at adventure. Suddenly it does matter if I can get potable milk. You know what I mean?
Kiev is definitely ahead of other cities in Ukraine, it always has been, and besides, it's been ten years since I was there. It's just that sometimes when I stop and think about things that I thought nothing of when I was there as a missionary...wow. I have hope that some things have changed and the same kind of hope that some things haven't.
We pack out of our house on Tuesday and fly out of the country in a couple weeks. In the meantime, we are going to spend some time being tourists in our own country - visiting our favorite places in and around D.C. as well as taking a little road trip to the Big Apple and a stop in Baltimore.
My life over the next few weeks is going to be chock full of blog material, I'm know. I'm just not sure what my computer access is going to be. We're still working that out.
Once we land in Kiev and get a little bit settled and/or I need to vent, I totally plan on blogging regularly. Catch me when you can!
