still can't talk about it

It's been nearly a month and still I cannot bring myself to discuss Italy and how much I miss it.

So, for now, here are some pictures for my dad since I know he's missing seeing pictures of the kids.

Spokane has been good to us. Weddings, lakes, and farms.

Oh, and we went ahead and enrolled Graham in the first grade at All Saints Catholic School. Kind of a big decision, and I can't believe I haven't mentioned it here. I love the school. It was just hard to decide whether to put him in school at all here in Spokane since we can't be certain that we'll be staying here.

We still can't really talk about what the next step is for our family. We don't know whether we'll stay in Spokane or move to Seattle for graduate school (Tony was accepted into a masters program at the University of Washington and that he has delayed starting until after Christmas) or get a job somewhere totally different. For now, we are taking some time to process, analyze, conceptualize, and decide what to do next.

The only thing we know for sure is that our time in Italy and with the Navy is over, and that makes us sad and excited at the same time.
