We've moved in

I've got no photos to post because I'm using a public computer at the library. Someday we'll get internet...and a phone... We've moved in and are getting settled! It's so beautiful here. I love it so far. The bases are SO close and I've not been missing anything except friends and the store. I've actually been sewing! I squared away my sewing room 1st of course:) I can't wait to show what I've made. The items were requested (katelyn, Aunt Karen) and I'm so happy to have them out of the way.
Emily has had a little bit of a tough time adjusting. Just weird small things. Ava is fine though! Emily started Schweinfurt Elementry today and guess what? They wear uniforms!!! WTF?? Why didn't I call and find this out?? Becasue I would assume that all military elementry schools in Germany would be the same that's why!! But noooo, they aren't in so many ways. I bought her new school clothes!! Crap! I had to go on Oldnavy.com and quickly order uniform stuff becasue the PX only had crap brand polo shirts that after I washed shrunk to belly shirts which aren't allowed by the way:) She will have student-wears-what-they-want day 2 times a month so she'll be decked out in all her new clothes!
That's all....oh, I had to call the IRS on my cell phone (becasue we have no phone) and I ran out of minutes and the phone hung up on the lady. I spent about $35 on a call to the IRS. Yay!!! I had just loaded the phone with minutes....anyway, I'll post when I can.

Well, I have been wondering how you are and missing hearing your voice, so it's good to know you are alright. Weird about the uniforms. I know that Stuttgart schools tried to do that a couple of years ago and the parents had a big enough fit that they decided not to. I will tell you about that when next we talk. I also am dying to know why you had to talk to the IRS. Love you and miss you Jen

Crazy about the uniforms. You would think they would mention that when you registered... Can't wait to see your unpacked place!

That's odd that military schools would have a uniform policy. My school has a uniform policy, but it's because of the gangs (no wearing gang colors). What is her uniform? I'm so glad to hear you're liking it there. I can't wait to talk to you.
Love, Jules

So happy that you blogged to let us know what you are up to. I think uniforms are great. Don't have to worry on what they need to wear in the morning. Gio wore uniforms from kinde to 10th grade until we moved to Germany and he never complained. The bright side of it was that he always had new clothes to go out. Stinks that the school didn't let you know ahead of time. Take picture of your craft room, can't wait to see what you have done with it.
