1 Year Anniversary


So it’s been a year already!  
27 June 2014 was the day we headed off to Houston, Texas.  
Not really sure what to expect.  
Not certain if it was a good idea.  
Leaving family and friends behind.

4 July 2014

It has been what, can only be described as, a roller-coaster of a year.  There have been moments when I've thought “what the hell are we doing here?”  Moments when Samuel has said he’s lonely or that the first day of school sucked as he had no-one to talk to.  Moments when I could have cried I felt so bad for him.  Moments when I could have packed a bag and got on the first flight back to the UK.

BUT

There have also been moments of friendship, of meeting new people, of line dancing fun and seeing the local area.  Of having Face Time and people to talk to during the week, (not working really cuts you off from the daily chats) and someone to have coffee with if you’re having a bad day and most of all, a moment of feeling like the proudest parents in the world when Samuel graduated from Seven Lakes High School.

It’s been a very quick year and all being well we will be given the OK to stay for another 10 years.

Would I do it again?


Ask me next year J
