The Stricklands going to Yaounde,cameroon!!!

This is Claire our 3 years old daughter who is just so excited as we are to go to Africa. Jeff is finishing up his training and on the 25th he gonna graduate and that means I'm gonna have the chance to see again the Benjamin Franklin room which is in the Main State building where the grad. ceremony will be held. A lot of pretty neat cool stuff and mostly antique from Benjamin Franklin possession.

Manila, Philippines was on the top of our bidding list,But Cameroon is on our #3 so we were pleased with the result.

And now, assignment in hand,Its either I'm out shopping mostly for the household,claire's and Jeff stuff or I'm on the Phone dealing with the movers,making dentist appointment for the three of us,Claire's pedia and trying to get an early appointment to my Chiropractor and oh did I mention that i have a couple of seminars to attend at the FSI and it's advisable for all the Foreign Service spouse who is posting overseas.We'll leave the country in July. We will be in Yaounde for the next two years, and then return for some more training and another posting. This is only the beginning, and the Strickland's have many more countries to visit. Hopefully Manila,Philippines next time Its like I'm winning the Lottery!
