In the home stretch

We finished our classes yesterday and are at the end of our 7-week orientation! This morning we’ll head downtown for our swearing in ceremony, along with John’s parents, Pete and Ginger, who drove in yesterday.

Being pushed out of the nest is both exciting and scary! Now we start actual training classes (Spanish, cultural studies and how to be a consular officer), as well navigating the bureaucracy (getting our new passports and visas). We’ve met a couple of co-workers who will be in Ciudad Juarez with us and had good communication with folks already at post – everyone seems really nice.

Wish us luck this morning!
