Last Day at FSI Daycare

Yesterday was Sicily's last day at the FSI daycare. It was a wonderful experience for her and a great convenience for us. Finding daycare in the Washington D.C. area is very hard. It will definitely be the first thing on our list when we come back for language training.

The only issue we had with the FSI daycare was its closing at 4:30 PM. Often training classes at FSI ended at 4:00 or 4:30, but sometimes they would end at 5:00. In those cases, I would leave work early, racing to daycare to get there in the nick of time. Staring July 1st, the daycare is now open until 5:30.

The teachers are great, the facility is very nice and never once did Sicily come home with food stains on her clothes even though she ate plenty of Italian food including, spaghetti, lasagna, cannoli and macaroni. She always had a better lunch than me!

Hi Natalie - I saw your blog on the AAFSW site... had to come check you out! We're also off to India in a few weeks. We're going to Chennai for 3 years (our 3rd overseas post).

Nice to "meet" you!

Forgot to mention that we too are traveling with our Labrador Retriever... though ours is just 75 pounds.

Nice to "meet" you too. Thanks for a link to your blog, I will definitely be reading it to compare our experiences. I hear Chennai is a great post.

Hope your move is uneventful!
