Karine and Tom NOT in Honduras

In June, we will be making a little change to our blog. Karine and Tom in Honduras will need to be changed to Karine and Tom in Omaha, Nebraska! After many thoughtful discussions, we reached a very difficult decision, and are happy to announce that we will be making a new home in Omaha, NE.

Honduras has been a fantastic home to us for the past 2 and a half years. We will, of course, finish the school year here and then say goodbye to our tropical home. There will be hundreds of people and things we will greatly miss. In our last few months here, we'll be sure to take note of them and share with the blogosphere.

We have decided to go back to the U.S. ultimately to be closer to family. We want Ezekiel to get to know his cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, great-aunts, great-uncle, and great friends back home. Plus, we've missed spending time with our families and we're excited to be able to rejoin them for family gatherings and frequent visits.

Currently, we do not have jobs, but we've got a few leads... If Tom can't get the job as Tourism Director for the city of Omaha, I'm sure something else just as exciting will turn up for us!

You guys will be missed! I discovered your blog about a year ago and it has been a fun ride.

A salute from SPS!

I have really enjoyed reading your blog for the past year...I found it when I was preparing for our vacation to Honduras last year, and I think I may have spotted you guys at Omega when we were there in May! I wish you the best of luck with your move - it's a big change, but I'm sure Zeke will love being closer to his family!

On a side note, I saw on the Mazapan website that they are hiring for a librarian, which I happen to be. Any words of wisdom or advice for me in applying to that position? Thanks!

Return, your mission is now over.
God who did call you here, now bids you go.
Return in peace, then, to your native shore and tell the mighty secrets that you know.
