January Greetings

Date: January 2, 2010
Location: Quito, Ecuador

Packing up our Christmas decorations on New Year’s Eve has become one of our yearly traditions.  In the midst of wrapping up Christmas lights and packing small ornaments, I found myself wondering where the time went.  The last time this Meier family sent out an update was the end of October.  Now, a new year has already begun.

Sorting through all the events that have taken place in the last two months is almost as challenging as making sure that I get all our Christmas decorations packed away for another season.  Invariably, I will tape the “Christmas box” shut before I find that one last bobble or Christmas kitchen towel that I forgot to pack.  It usually ends up in a little plastic bag sitting on top of the Christmas box.

As I sort through my recent memories, I’ll try to remember those that are the most significant.  Please visit our new posts to find out about the following “happenings” in the lives of the MK Meier Family in Quito, Ecuador:
