Parties and travel

This week was really busy at work – most days we finish interviews by mid-afternoon, but several days this week we were still at the window at quitting time. The work is pretty interesting and varied – you just never know who is going to walk up and what their story is.

We had our first party at our house Friday night to welcome our friends Teresa and Michael to Juarez and to our neighborhood. We had a good turnout – it was great to have a house full of people having fun!

The next morning, I flew to Little Rock and am at Mom’s in Hot Springs right now. Last night we had a great dinner at David and Alison’s (David is on home leave from Diego Garcia this month). We sat outside on their deck overlooking Lake Hamilton, and watched Canada geese and mallards play while we ate fabulous grilled steaks and drank a bottle of wine. Being at their house is always so relaxing.

I’ve posted a few pictures from Juarez and of our house – click here to see the album. We haven’t received our shipment yet, so the house is still pretty bare with government bedspreads, no art on the walls, etc. but you can get an idea of the house and the city.
