One year ago the children and I boarded a plane. We finally had our visas after some months of waiting. It was time to leave. It was hard to say good-bye to friends and things we loved in the northwest. It was hard to pack all our stuff into boxes and suitcases and I am thankful for the friends who helped by packing the last few boxes. My husband had come early as he had meetings and there really wasn't room for us to stay until the meetings were over. We had time to say good-bye.

Then it was to new places, friends, food, and adventures. What have we done this year? We found a house, bought a car, began the process to get our driving licences, learned where to shop, made some new friends, discovered new parks, enjoyed new foods and treats, and so much more.
To celebrate -- we will get fish 'n chips.
