Another Update

I am finally at my final location here in Afghanistan. It took a couple of weeks to get here but it is good to finally be able to settle down. I will update you more as I get settled in but here are a few pictures of the trip so far.

This is one of the stray dogs that hangs around the building I am staying in right now. I think his name is "Hutch" and there are 2 other dogs that hang around as well. They make themselves at home in the common area and I am sure enjoy sleeping inside during the winter.
This is from one of the bases I stopped at for a few days on my way to my final destination. The huts are typical of what we live in here.

On the top of the closest hill is the ruins of a fort from when Alexander the Great occupied Afghanistan. It is supposably mined heavily up there so we can't go up there. Also if you look close you can see a guy walking out in the middle of no where. There is actually a town off to the left of the hill but there were a lot children playing out in that open space when I looked out there later in the day.

Update From Steve

I am here in Kyrgyzstan waiting on our flight down to Afghanistan. It has been pretty laid back with nothing to do but watch movies, eat, and try to get over the jet lag. We have been here a couple of extra days because of weather and I can't really complain. Here are a couple of pictures.

Steve is Leaving today for Afghanistan and I am not excited about it. Even though he is in Kansas right now it still is not fun knowing that your other half is leaving. I am going to miss him so much and I know that Dylan already does too. We love you Steve and Please be careful and come back to us in one piece. Love you!(Steves dad took pictures at the airport so I am waiting to get them from him)

Carving Pumpkins

We waited for Daddy to be home so that he could carve pumpkins with us this year. Dylan liked stabbing the pumpkins but he would not touch the guts inside.

Happy Halloween

Dylan was Super Man for Halloween this year, and what a Handsome one he was.
