Coming and Going

March 26, 2008

We have been caught up in a whirlwind. After our time in Portland, we headed north to Washington state where we had a great time catching up with friends from Okinawa now living in Mt. Vernon and then then back down to Bainbridge Island where we caught up with more wonderful friends. Our trip was cut short when we received the sad news that Adam's grandfather had passed away so we headed south to San Francisco. Gramps was 98 years old and quite a character. I have vivid memories of him dancing at our wedding party...8 years ago with the spirit and energy of a 19 year old. He painted passionatedly, loved telling jokes, and didn't hesitate to share his thoughts. May we all be blessed to live such a long and fulfilling life!

While in California we received more details about Adam's upcoming deployment which has sent us into another whirlwind of planning and preparation. We decided that since Adam will spend the month of April working out-of-state that the kids and I would join him to maximize our family time. We returned late last night and spent today unpacking, washing, and starting to pack to leave again in three days. My head is spinning with random details, my body is exhausted, and my nerves are a little frazzled as I try to regain some stability in the midst of our recent comings and goings. I'll try to post more photos soon from our recent travels.

Good luck with everything Lucia. I'm so sorry for Adam's loss of his Grandfather, but am glad you could celebrate his life.
