Well, we have almost made it through our first year here in Kuwait. It's funny that time has seemed to fly and drag by simultaneously.
My older children have adjusted somewhat to school and life in general here. They both have made friends in school; although, none of their friends are Kuwaiti....
Life in Mangaf has been interesting to say the least. One day I looked out and was surprised when I thought I saw a kite flying by the window, only to be let down by the realization that it was a grocery bag aloft.
We, the kids and I, are eagerly anticipating going home this summer. Can I still call it 'home'? You betcha! Even though we will be going to the sweltering heat of the deep south, I am so looking forward to being able to go outside, see green things and hear wildlife and nature. How I miss the sound of wind, rain, birds and squirrels!
Maybe next year I will be able to concentrate on life around me better here. Maybe one day I will think about going back to work too. Maybe, maybe... but for now, I am just relishing the thought of home.
