In other news...

Okay, I know that by now you are surely thinking, "WE GET IT, KEL! You went on a Disney cruise. It was amazing. You had the time of your life. Blah blah blah! We're over it!"

Well, you're in luck. Everything there was to say about the cruise has been said, so we can wrap that up in a pretty little box and put it behind us. *Phew* No kidding, it felt like a homework assignment that I just needed to tackle, so I'm a bit relieved it's all said and done.

In lieu of holiday blogging, I now present real, actual news in our family! It's not really breaking news, since we've known from last week. But if you aren't my Facebook friend or someone I see in real life, then chances are you don't know, and it's news to you. (But really, if you aren't my Facebook friend or real life friend...who are you? Where did you come from? Who let you in?!) ;)

Our news is that we got our next assignment, and we're moving to South Carolina! Columbia, to be exact. We're pretty excited about the news. It looks like we'll be moving back stateside in January, which will come quickly, I'm sure.

Of course, leaving England does mean we'll be leaving cool scenes like this. (Geeze, I wish this had been my house for the last 3 1/3 years!)

But being back in the States does mean we'll see more scenes like this.

Something to look forward to, I guess? As our four year tour in England wraps up, I know we'll have many bittersweet moments that will remind us of how lucky we've been to have this assignment.
In other bittersweet news, my boss is leaving soon. He's been a pretty good boss (understatement of the year), and we are sad to see him leave.

Where I work, this is how they say good-bye. Fortunately, I'll escape this treatment when I leave since I don't fly. (I dunno, I might trade in one day of sopping wet good-byes to be able to fly!)

So, lots of changes in the immediate and distant future! Lots of things to plan and prepare for, and even more things to say good-bye too, sadly. It'll be a challenging, but fun six months!
And now, just because I feel like it, I wanted to share this adorable picture of my son with his friend Lily. He loves that girl! Tomorrow is Lily's mom's birthday. So, happy birthday, Robin! Have a great day! :)


  1. Congrats on the assignment. You will be missed by many in England, but know you'll enjoy being back in the states also. Enjoy your last 6 months!!
