top 5

2014-06-11 countdown by Melissa CrossettOur countdown chain is getting very short, and we’ll be arriving in the US in less than one week!  It’s been two and a half years since we’ve been home, and needless to say we’re pretty excited.  More than anything, we’re looking forward to being reunited with family and friends.  That’s a given.  Aside from that, there are many other things to look forward to.  Here are my top 5:

1. Real indoor plumbing.  I can’t wait to take a bath, wash dishes inside the house and have a real sink in the bathroom for my kids to wash their hands.  It will be fun introducing our kids to conveniences like dishwashers and garbage disposals.2014-06-11 countdown by Melissa Crossett-62. Food.  We love the food here, but definitely miss foods like cheese, avocados, dark chocolate, steak, hamburgers, etc.. I could go on and on.2014-06-11 countdown by Melissa Crossett-73. Shopping.  I can’t wait to walk the aisles of Trader Joes and Target.  I’d be more than happy if those were the only two stores I ever got to shop in.2014-06-11 countdown by Melissa Crossett-54. Driving/riding in a car.   I’m not sure how the girls will feel about car seats, but it’s going to be wonderful to have our family inside a safe, comfortable vehicle.three on a motorbike by Melissa Crossett5. The beach!  There’s just nothing like the beach for fun and relaxation.2014-05-05 Lao summer by Melissa Crossett-96. Parks and the library.  (yes, I know I said top 5) I can’t wait to see my girls’ reactions to the aisles of books we can choose from, or the slides and jungle gyms to play on.2014-06-11 countdown by Melissa Crossett-3Ryan’s top 3 are: food, the beach, and watching the world cup.
