We just wanted to write a quick little update on our plans so that you’re not surprised if you see us in CA in the coming days/weeks. The five of us are hopping on a plane tomorrow evening, headed for the U.S.A! Brian is required to have about 4 weeks of training at our training center in Arizona in the new R66 helicopter that he’ll be flying here shortly. Our plans are going to look a little bit like this:
February 15th: Arrive in California. We will spend a couple of days gathering some necessities in Santa Maria and a quick visit with family.
February 18th: Brian drives to Arizona while Bailey and the kids fly to Colorado to spend time with family there. They will join Brian in Arizona after their visit.
End of March: Drive back to Santa Maria for some R & R and time together as a family. This will be a much-needed break for us before we jump back into life here because it will be a long time before we get another chance to take a break.
April 6th: Fly back to the Philippines!
This isn’t a furlough or a vacation (except for a little bit at the end 🙂 and so we regret that we won’t be able to see most of you like we would love to. We plan to visit the Harbor in Santa Maria on March 25th and we’d love to be able to see many of you then! Otherwise, we will look forward to seeing you all whenever we return for a longer home assignment in the coming year or two.
