Endings (and Beginnings)

Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Including our family’s adventures in Indonesia. After three years of living the strangest, most extraordinary life imaginable, it’s time for us to pack our bags and return to suburbia.

The bittersweet countdown to this epic adventure begins next week when Chris’s replacement arrives to jobsite. A strategically planned two-month transitional period will allow the girls to complete the school year, and give Chris ample time to hand-off his projects and responsibilities. It, also, gives us more time to soak-up and enjoy the things that we love most about this experience.

By mid-July, we will be back in Phoenix, with our knees under our dining room table, establishing a new beginning. Albeit, a less adventurous beginning; but, nonetheless, a new beginning.

    I both very happy and incredibly sad for you all. You have understandably had the experience that very few are able to appreciate. I am grateful that you all enjoyed that magic. I also regret that I won’t be able to vicariously enjoy your lives through your amazing blog. I can also imagine you back on the U.S. enjoying the positive things that this country has to offer. Continue to treasure your last few months in paradise. Love you

      Hopefully, we’ll see you all when we are in Idaho picking up Chris’s Jeep! You’ll have to schedule your vacations around our return date. 🙂

    This is very sad for us, because we are relocating TO Tembag mid-July, and after reading your incredible blogs, and meeting Chris, we were so excited to meet you. :-/

      What an exciting time for you! It sounds like we may cross paths in the Timika Airport as we leave and you arrive. How crazy would that be!? Enjoy your adventure in Tembagapura!!

    We are looking forward to having you back. Let me know when you are in town and we can get together. Is Kylee going to Desert Sun in the fall?

    • Kriste Rose says:

      Hi Gayle! We haven’t set an exact date, but the girls and I are planning on arriving sometime in the first part of July. Chris will stay until July 22. We kept our house, so the girls would return to the same school district. Kylee will be attending DSA in the fall! I’ll contact you when we are back!
