After a busy five year term we are starting to think about our upcoming home assignment. We hope to arrive back in the US in early June. Because of the length of time we have been overseas, we will be spending a total of 15 months on home assignment, although Phil will need to make several trips back to Mozambique during that time. Our goal is to travel as a family for two summers and let the kids have a full school year in between. Our plan is to concentrate our travels on the western states in 2012 and the eastern in 2013. Between family and friends we will hitting all four corners of the US. We plan to be based in Florida for our furlough. The kids will attending a small school there and tell us that they are really looking forward to attending a “real” school for a change! 🙂
Praise the Lord with us that we have been able to save a large percentage of the money we think we will need for our tickets. We haven’t looked into prices yet, so we aren’t sure exactly what they will run. Pray that we will also be able to find and afford a reliable vehicle for all our long travels as well as affordable housing in Florida for the 9-10 months of the school year that we will be settled there.
