Wow, I haven't posted in nearly 3 weeks! No excuse, just haven't managed to sit quietly long enough to focus on anything! I've got about 10 posts to add, bear with me while try to get them organized and remember where all the pictures are!
To get you up to speed: Both girls started cross country practice last week. I honestly didn't think Meg would stick with it, it's SO hot and the coach really runs them hard, but she seems to like it, and she's a good runner. They'll be going to running camp at Tama from Aug 17 - 20.
School starts Aug. 25, they're both a little nervous about starting middle school and high school, but they're also really ready to get back to school.
I'm now a member of the West Pacific Girl Scouts Overseas Committee. We had a 3-day training workshop at Atsugi Naval Air Station, about an hour from here, with all the other GS leaders in Japan. It was pretty fun, one night we drove to Outback Steakhouse for dinner, oh how I love the Chocolate Thunder from Down Under!!!!!
Otis leaves on Sept. 1 on a 6-week TDY to Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage, AK. The kids and I are hoping to join him for a week in October, depending on the flight schedules.
