Change of address

Mike is leaving on Sunday for instructor school in Little Rock, Ark. He will be taking a six week course at the base.

We are going with him, at least for the first couple of weeks.

He has been offered a house on the base where all of us can stay.

I'm a little unsure of what all the boys and I will do while Mike is at work, but am excited about the task of coming up with things to entertain little ones. I'm thinking we'll spend a good amount of time at the gym (Little Rock AFB has a great Mom and kids area), we'll visit the base library several times a week, probably spend many hours at the Halderman house. Lisa and Matt Halderman are good friends of ours who are stationed up there. I have really missed morning coffee with Lisa. We haven't done it in 2 years!

We will have lots of free time without Mike around. He will not have much free time. So if anyone wants to come visit us we've got a bedroom for you!

Don't know when I will be back home. I think we will come back (at least for a few days) in two weeks. We'll see how it all works out.

If any of you out-of-towners wants to come visit the great city of Abilene, forget the hotel, come stay at "Casa de Ellis" free of charge! I'll get a friend to sponsor you on base. Seriously. Just clean the kitchen again before you leave.

That is great you are all going to Little Rock. I hope you have a great time. I just wish it was a little closer to where I am and I'd come visit you! Have a safe trip! I'm sure Mike will do a great job.
