    Wow Karen! It has been fascinating reading about all of your adventures!! I had read your first post and became very worried wondering how you all were going to survive the next 3 years!! I was thinking that I would receive an email when you posted something new…and no emails came. I became more worried! How happy I was when I discovered your next few posts all at once. I am so happy that the kids have such an amazing school, and you have the American Club! You are a brave, adventurous woman!! (Aren’t you supposed to have an obligatory maid to do all that laundry? :-)) I have been reading all of your posts to the boys and they are in awe. They will have lots of questions for your kids when we see you again. (Christmas is only 3 1/2 months away!!) I would love to hear what new dishes you are cooking up for your family! You have really got me thinking about so many little things we take for granted each day. Love hearing about it all! Miss you guys. Love, Amy

      Thanks Amy! Until we get in our permanent spot, I am doing my own laundry — no maid yet, ha ha! It might sound exciting to have all this help, but the conversations I have had with so many expats is that it is a lot of work to find the right people and life becomes managing the household help which I am really not looking forward to but know we will need it for various reasons. We look forward to seeing you at Christmas!

    Hi to the Tyler’s
    I had been waiting for an e/m and decided to check out your blog. Oh my, is all i can say. it has been interesting reading and far more adventuresome than any of my travels. I must admit the Tyler’s win when it comes to adjustments. i congratulate all of you for your spirit and adjustment.

    i would like to understand the guards requirement, just curious. i totally get the driver and maid.
    I must say that things in San Clemente have been very normal and far less exciting. the new neighbors are very nice, but i still miss the Tyler’s and the kids to tease and have a bit of fun with.
    I will keep up with you more frequently on your blog. I promise homemade peach jam when you are home for the holidays. Let me know when you will be in town.

    Kaye 🙂

    Received your Christmas card today. Gosh I can hardly believe how grown up the children are. One on a mission, how great is that. Your family sure is experiencing so much! Gosh, the stories they can tell their friends when they come home, or even their own children. I smile when I think of our times in Aliso Viejo. We are all fine, getting older and places hurt where they did not before. Jennifer is a real help to us. We live so near our son now and enjoying the grandchildren. They too aren’t too much children anymore. I have two graduated and one is a junior this year. So far no decision to go on a mission. We are kind of disappointed in that, but it is what it is. We wish you all the best in the coming new year!
    Cathy, John and Jennifer Serra
