We're Back!

I'm so relieved to be home, after about 24 hours of traveling, from our precious Oregon town all the way to our tiny farming community here in Germany. What a blessing to be in my own bed last night- even if my sleep was interrupted 5 times by time-zone-confused little boys!

Over the next few days I'll do my best to post pictures of our trip, but please be patient with me, as I have but 10 days till we need to be moved out of our house and into base lodging.

One of the interesting experiences we had was my sister's demonstration of using a special candle to remove ear wax. My daughter Kristine was the timid volunteer:

LOL! It was one of those things you just had to be there for!

Just as I reminder not to take myself too seriously, here is a picture of me sleeping with little Ian on the floor of the C-17 on the way to America. It was incredibly cold, even with several layers of blankets and Tim's coat on top of us. I learned my lesson and wore thermal underwear on the trip back. Can you find me in the heap?! I'm the redhead with the eye mask!

  1. LOL! Did the ear wax candle work? That's great!

    I'm glad you guys made it home safely. We look forward to your pictures. I need to upload mine, but my darn computer is so slow!
