Our Next Assignment...
It has been nothing but drama surrounding our assignment and now we can breath a sigh of relief just knowing where we are going. Now we can focus on getting orders, schedule our house to get packed and shipped, and figure out our route to the US in the next 5-6 weeks. Yes, moving from Japan to the US in this short of notice is a little nerve racking, but we have become pros on moving. Doesn't mean it's easy though (especially with a 3 and 4 year old)!
Ok, here's the scoop. We found out two weeks ago or so Eric would be going to Texas to fly the T 38. We were so excited. Then a week later we were notified that his assignment changed to the MQ 9 Reaper, his choice of location. Eric finally got with his assignment guy and everything is set for us to return to Creech/Las Vegas sometime near the end of October. Here's Eric's next plane:
Pros:
  1. We'll be close to both sets of parents (Oceanside and Phoenix)
  2. It's a buyers market; we've outgrown our current house in Vegas. Time to buy a rocking house!
  3. Costco!
  4. Trader Joes!
We're up for trying a new realtor this time around. Any of you have realtor friends in the Vegas/North Las Vegas area? We'd love to give our business to a military spouse in particular.

Yay...Vegas is close enough to visit! The funny part is the Texas guess I made earlier is was a stab in the dark. :)

Finally!!!! Las Vegas. . . Yea, buy a huge house so when all of us come to see you we can have our own wing. ;) Too bad about Texas, I bet Eric really misses the flying part!!!

Yeah!!!!!!! I am so glad you'll be close by and I can't wait to visit you. And you can count on us babysitting for you! You guys deserve some American date nights! Congrats again!!!

I've been using the excuse, "We'll have tons of visitors" to Eric for looking up big houses. We could have had guest houses in TX, but we'll settle for a 4 or 5 bedroom house in Vegas. A pool is a must and next it needs room for a swingset. Once we are settled in, you're all welcome to visit! This will be one of the best parts of living in Vegas.

In your list, you forgot to mention dishwasher :)

Vicki, since a lot of homes are foreclosures, quite a few have missing dishwashers. I will never go without a dishwasher again! Of course I said that after misawa too.
