Family Update

July 4th, 2008 · 3 Comments

After traveling more than 30 hours, Derek finally got home Tuesday night just before midnight. He went from Moscow to Warsaw, then his flight from Warsaw to Chicago was 2 hours late and he missed his connection. They put him on another flight to Phoenix, but that was 2 hours delayed. But he finally made it, and is slowly converting to MST.

Welcome home Derek!

Devon has been working as an Intern for Spectra Sensors, doing programming, for 3 months. They just offered him a full-time job, which he is considering. Looks like a good offer. He’s a little disappointed that he isn’t doing something with his Physics degree, but he enjoys the work. Grad school Fall 2009 is still an option, so this may be for only a year.

Gisele and I are also slowly adjusting to local time. I wake up most mornings around 5 am, but since I often get up about then anyway to play basketball, that’s not too bad.

We all just wish we could have brought the weather with us (high 60’s to low 70’s).

    I’m so thankful that everyone is back “in the land of the free and the home of the brave” for the Fourth of July.

    Celebrate our freedom!

    I thought it was about time Derek got home. Couldn’t remember the exact date. Hope he updates his blog soon with “the rest of the story”.

    Also hope you update your photo gallery soon with pictures of your cruise. I’m anxious to see those fjords!

    Welcome home everyone. (Just in time for me to leave the Valley for a little trip to the coast.)

    It’s OK for you to leave the Valley a few at a time, just so that someone stays nearby, in case I have another emergency.

    I feel better when I know someone in the family is nearby.
