I’ve been quiet for a while, I realize. I didn’t think much about coming to this space to share my thoughts during my time in the states. We’ve been back for a little over a week now. The kids have started a new school year, a discipleship school has begun on University Village, and we’re sending our interns that have been with us for almost a year off to Uganda and Kenya. There’s been lots of good stuff happening!
This last trip made me realize, more than ever, the idiosyncrasies of living an expat life. If you’re an expat or have ever been one, then I’m sure you can relate to the silly things I struggle with when I travel been two countries. Find me over at Petit Elefant sharing some of differences that makes me stop and use all my mental energy to figure out.

I tend to say "left, left, left, left," to myself sometimes when I'm driving here, like on a residential street when the lanes aren't marked, and of course I have to change that in America! Wal-mart is completely overload in the US – I used to enjoy it but now it's waaaaay too much. And oh getting in on the wrong side of the car is definitely the worst. Totally identified with this!
