We have been in our condo now for one week. Ryan continues to like his job. Most of his clinic patients have hypertension and diabetes. At the end of their visit, when asking them if they need new prescriptions, many of them replied, "no, we just came to meet the new doctor!". We both bought cars this week. Ryan purchased a "Rocky" (Diahatsu???) of unknown year, and I bought a 1998 Jeep Cherokee. Because we live on a mountain with an unpaved road, we need 4x4s. Finally, a reason to own an SUV! Although I feel a bit irritable as I adjust, we are slowly finding out where to buy things and are getting used to our new schedules. I am enjoying a Sunday night without thinking about returning to work tomorrow!
Some pics of our condo and pool. We also went to the town parade on July 4th. It was hot (90 degrees and 90 percent humidity). We looked over to find Morgan being cradled and fanned by a Chamorro native. She has been waiting her whole life for that!!!
Thanks for all your comments and loving support. We miss you very much.

Wow, I am in awe of what you have already experienced. I loved hearing about your church experience,especially. What a blessing. I will write more later, just wanted to see if this goes through. Got your bday message Kim, thanks! Wish I could have talked to you--in new home and we really, really LOVE it.
Miss you.
Love you all,

Amazing pictures! Allowing us a glimpse of all you are experiencing. And of course the picture of the children asleep is about the sweetest thing I have ever seen! Diana

Thanks so much for sharing the photos. It is pretty amazing what all you have done in such a short time. Of course our favorite photo is the one with Nicky and Morgan holding hands in their sleep--very precious!! Love, Mom and Dad
