Well actually the short version of everything that happened between the two posts below:
We arrived at Fort Irwin and found a nice house in Barstow to rent. Tim redeployed to Iraq with 11th ACR/Blackhorse in March of 05. In June we got housing on post so the kids and I moved to 5108 A Sweetwater Springs Drive. I was active in the FRG and PWOC, the kids were in AWANA and a couple plays with Missoula Children's Theater. Tim redeployed home January of 06 and became acting 1SGT in May. I was the Programs lady for PWOC for the 06/07 year. In August Tim transferred to RHHT and worked at the "Star Wars Building" as a Regimental OC until we left post. December we were home for Christmas and in Jan had orders to be at Fort Riley in April. Add in a few trips to San Diego, The Channel Islands, The Regan Library, Disneyland, Death Valley, and other places in S. CA; dance classes for me and Tim, a retreat to plan and execute, trip to CO with our PWOC President, tutoring, home schooling, more AWANA, Violin lessons, horseback riding lessons, Chapel activities, FRG functions, walks, neighborhood drama, friendships, and love and there you have it!
The LONG of it has been this move!! 6MONTHS after leaving CA we finally have a house. The housing market here is insane right now and totally unreasonable but with the Lord's help we have a nice 3bdrm Victorian in Abilene.
