Final Post from Oz

Our time here in Australia is ending soon.  We both finished work on January 15th and have stayed busy seeing the surrounding sights.  We fly to Melbourne next week to drive the Great Ocean Road and will come back to Sydney for 3 days before flying out on February 2nd.  The next 9 days are planned down to the minute!  As our internet is cut off tomorrow, we thought we would make one final post and answer a few frequently asked questions.

FAQ's

When do you arrive back in the States?  Monday, February 2nd
How long is the trip?  Total travel time is 40 hours
Where are you flying to?  Denver where Damon's parents will pick us up and take us back to Casper, WY
Where will you go after that?  After 10 days in WY, we will travel to Tulsa via Lincoln, NE.  
Where will you go after that?  We will be in Tulsa 3 days and then will fly to CA to visit Amy's Grandma and the Huddleston's too.
Where will you go after that?  Wow, you're persistent aren't you.  Back to Tulsa to live with Amy's parents until we find jobs or they kick us out.  There is also a trip in there sometime to Texas to see Amy's other Grandma and for Amy to be the Matron of Honor in her wedding.  
Where are you looking for jobs?  Damon has applied for jobs all over the US.  Considering the current economic condition, we don't feel like we can be too picky.   
What does Damon want to do?  He wants to work with refugees resettling to the States.
Has he applied for any jobs?  Yes, 11 so far.
What will Amy do in the meantime?  She will probably work a temp job in Tulsa or eat bon bons.  
When are you coming to OKC?  We will try to come the last weekend in February.
Are you sad to leave Sydney?  Yes, we are.  Of course, we have mixed emotions.  We had a rough start but have grown to love Sydney.  This is a beautiful city and country and we feel blessed to have had the opportunity to live here.  
Are you excited to see your friends and family?  Of course!
How can we help?  Please pray that God provides us with jobs the we love in a timely fashion.  You can also let us sleep on your couch :)  

I think that about covers it for now.  We are looking forward to seeing each and every one of you.  Until then......

LOVE the photo! Thanks for the scoop- I was curious what your future situation would be. Too bad we don't live in the path of any of your travels. : ) You will have to make frequent visits to see Baby Kate S. Enjoy the next month or so.
