As always, I am late writing this letter and sending cards, but better late than never! We have had a very busy year (as it always seems to be.) Jack keeps us busy, but there have been other things that have kept us busy as well!
From January through June we were still in
We were able to go on a student retreat in May with 7th and 8th grade students! Jack loved being with the students and they loved on him. We were able to spend some time with our good friends the Priests during the weekend too. What a great time!
We spent June packing and unpacking. We left
We gained so many good friends while in
Though we are glad to be where it is safer, it has been a difficult transition to be here. I never knew how difficult it is for missionaries to go back and forth, adjusting and readjusting. I learned that life is all about what you are used to. It was an adjustment to get used to being in
Since we have returned we have been attending
I have been staying home with Jack and Mike is working as an accountant. He is glad to not be teaching right now, which is much harder than sitting at a computer all day like he is doing now. He was a good teacher who cared about the kids, but didn’t enjoy the discipline part of the job. The kids we worked with in
Since we have been back we have been working on getting Mike’s mom a house. She was living in our house while we were gone and she now has a house in Rural Hall that she should move into within the next few weeks. We have spend many hours working on it and Jack has enjoyed the big tree out in the front yard! We have also enjoyed some things here this fall that we didn’t get to in
Jack has also enjoyed visiting his grandparents, uncles, aunt, and cousin. He loves his cousin Christopher and they have a good time together. We are glad that Jack gets to see his family in person rather than on the computer all the time. Jack has also enjoyed playing with our dog Annie.
We are blessed to have had the time that we did in
May God bless you with one blessing after another…
Mike, Caroline and Jack Fleischer
