Oh my goodness, how our lives have changed in the past two weeks... I'm getting all emotional and teary eyed just thinking about it :(
Keenan drew this picture (before the protesters came) on the erase board and insisted on keeping the picture, so I took a picture of it. It's a picture of him and I in front of the embassy, complete with the flag.
The fingerpaints kept Van amused for a long time... he was then covered in blue paint...
We have decided that as a family we will NOT be returning to Tunisia. I'm so sad but when we have to question our kids' safety both at home and school, well... It took the Tunisian government 3 hours to respond to the school's calls of distress while they were getting ransacked. 3 Hours to respond, thankfully the kids were not there. The middle east is just in too much turmoil to return with confidence. I think most all of the families have the same thinking as us; we don't know any families at this point returning to post.
DC will probably be our next destination. Not quite as exciting as a new country and a new culture but oddly we're excited at the possibility of normal everyday stuff like having access to Target and little league.
