Well we have all heard the cliches; "Home Sweet Home," "There's no place like home," "Home is where the hearts is," "Home is where you hang your your hat," and another that has rung true for Chris and me growing up as Air Force brats and continues to ring true even now, "Home is where the Air Force sends you." And, the Air Force is sending us to Cannon Air Force Base in Clovis, New Mexico. Where? Yes, that was my original thought/question too. It is a largely agricultural town situated near New Mexico's eastern border. Clovis is approximately 100 miles from both Lubbock and Amarillo, TX and boasts such restaurants as Chili's, Applebees, Burger King, Dominos (the only dine-in Dominos with full buffet, LOL), Red Lobster and K-Bob's Steakhouse!
Despite the fact that Clovis was not our first choice, we find ourselves very excited about what God has planned for us there and are eager for this new chapter of our lives!
Our new chapter will begin sometime near the end of September and we are hoping to live in base housing in a neighborhood that is acutally off base and associated with the top elementary school in the area.
Until then, we are still missing Chris as he finishes up training in Texas. He has been there since February and is scheduled to return at the end of May. Then he is headed to Las Vegas for three more months of training. We have arranged to live in a grogeous, 4-bedrooom vacation rental home there, so if you are planning a trip to Vegas between June and September, come stay with us!!!!! (Because we know that not too many of you will be interested in visiting us once we move to Clovis, haha!)
