Happy Birthday, Kail!


birthday, birthweek, glenorchyOur transfer to/from Kabul sort of got in the way of properly celebrating Kail’s Birthweek this year and last. This year the celebration has spanned much longer than a week, with some gifts given in time for our packout from Kabul and others awaiting us at my parents’ house in Virginia, where I shipped them so they could be included in our UAB shipment to Amman.Today we’re celebrating in an unexciting fashion: by spending the day in separate meetings in preparation for our arrival to Jordan, followed by dinner at one of our favorite DC establishments.We’re one week out from our Afghanistan departure and — after a lovely three-day stop in London — are amidst consultations, doctors’ appointments, car/UAB shopping and other not-so-fun elements of transfer season. Home leave begins next week, and I think we’re both looking forward to relaxing and completely disconnecting — from our previous and onward posts — for a few weeks.What have you been up to this summer?
