how many times does your sister return to the US?...

I'm sitting in my niece's room at college, using her laptop to make this post. She's going to college at Wheaton in Norton, MA.

I arrived last night after about a 14 hour drive. Normally I would drive through Canada and it would have taken closer to 12 hours, but I let my passport lapse and so, had to drive under Lake Erie.

You may be wondering why I've come all the way out here. Well, my sister Terry and her husband Bill are moving back to the United States after living in Vienna Austria for the past 8 years. And I'm going to be at the airport to greet them! SURPRISE!!!

So the answer to the above question? Um...well, this will be her third time coming back (first time from Belgium, second time from the Netherlands and this time from Austria).

Their children Nick and Erin have been back in the states for the past 4 and 2 years respectively. Terry was feeling that she needed to get back stateside for all those "just in case" moments.

I'm going to have this entry post later, so that just in case she is looking at my blog (yeah, right)...don't want to ruin a surprise.

Don't worry Sam, the plan is still to come out there next year (Springish time frame), but I see you're coming here soon!!!
