The Crazy Things Foreign Service Kids Get To Do

We have some friends here who are serving in the United States Air Force, and it so happens that their son is a friend of Shay's.

There were some military VIPs here last week, and the dad in this family was kept busy escorting the generals to their various meetings. Then, this past weekend, it was time for the generals to fly home again. The dad needed to take them to the airport, and he invited Shay to go along.

So while we were having snowball fights here at home, Shay and his friend were at Marka Air Force Base, climbing all over a USAF C17, chatting with one of the pilots and checking out the cockpit.

Just one more thing regular kids back home don't typically do on a random wintry weekend.

Crawling through the plane had to be interesting but the other three kids playing in the snow sure seemed to be having a load of fun. A chance to do either makes ne envious.
