House hunting is when you get sent to your new location (so Germany!!) and choose a house. Choosing a house is your main “event” for being there. Other things are opening a European bank account, getting a postal number at the base post office, enrolling your kids in school…etc The list on things to do while there is never ending. Another question, do you bring your kids, or no? It will of course be long for them, but do you attempt it so they know their new area of living, so they know their new school before leaving?!?! We ended on yes, and John’s mom offered to come with us to help with the kids. SCORE! Now that we had all that planned, let the packing begin.
