and We're still up! Can you believe it?!?! This away from the kids thing is something I could get use to. Not really. I miss my kids. I'm shocked at our up at almost 12am because at home, with 3 kids, I am usually in bed dead by 10. We are having such a good time. Did I mention we're away from the kids? Anyhoo, Last night we went to our new church for their Wednesday service. We LOVE it with a capital L O V E. We met some wonderful people. Several from the base. I am beginning to look forward to this move.
This morning we got up and checked out of our hotel and made the drive up to Washington DC. What an amazing and historic place. We did the touristy thing for a while with a group then went off by ourselves. We went to Arlington National Cemetary. What a beautiful place that is. We went to the monuments. Abe Lincoln had shifty eyes. Seriously. Have you ever been to the Lincoln memorial? No matter were you stand he's lookin atcha. I'm serious..shifty eyes. Anyhoo, We saw the capital building, the white house, the pentagon (hubby got really excited about that) (rolling my eyes) the FBI building (another excited moment for hubby) We went to the Smithsonian. That place is AWESOME! Then we went to the Vietnam war memorial. Oh Em Gee! You see hubby lost an uncle in Vietnam. He was a Marine. OohRaw! Anyhoo, It was an emotional moment for hubby. He actually called his dad and told him he was looking at his brothers (his dad's brother not his..hence his uncle) name on the wall. So sad. Then we decided it was time to just go back to our hotel and relax before dinner.
And so ends our day in Washington. Next stop...NYC!

If you remember a few posts ago I mentioned that we're being transferred, Hubby has to report on April 1st and we'd be following later..There now that you're caught up...
Danny and I flew to Norfolk VA Sunday afternoon. Just to get him signed in and the housing process started. We will have housing by May 1st. We left the little kids home with our grown daughter. I wanted to spend this week alone with my husband. We'll be apart while he is here and I am with the kids in Washington waiting for the end of the school year.
So We've taken a tour of the base, seen where he will work, and where we will live. We've not lived on base before. This should be kind of fun. We met some of the people in our future neighborhood. Lot's of kids in our neighborhood. I am looking forward to this new adventure. Kind of sad and a little worried about leaving family behind but we're only a plane ride away right? Right.
Tomorrow we're going to explore the town. We're going to visit the church we've found to attend and check out the skating rink where our daughter will take her lessons. Thursday we are going to drive up to Washington DC and do the touristy thing and spend the night. Friday We're going to drive up to New York and do touristy things there, Spend the night and see a show, then fly home Saturday afternoon from Kennedy airport. I'm really excited about the last leg of our trip.

I'm looking at this as a new adventure. I am a little sad to be leaving the west coast. I've only ever lived here. How different can Virginia be? There are beaches right. I'm really sad about leaving our church and all of my groups. I just hope we can find a worship home that we love and feel welcome and all that good stuff.
