Ours began as the classic ex-pat story in 2012. Darling husband got an overseas post; I went from being a Working Spouse to becoming a Trailing Spouse. The children started planning where to spend their “Fall Break,” “Winter Break,” “Ski Break,” and “Spring Break” from the American School. Now, the oldest child is a University of Michigan graduate; and the youngest one calls Vienna, “Home.” As for the Foxhound, who has chased trout in Austrian lakes; traveled across Europe with us; and eats Pommes on every weekend hike, his is a dog’s life.
So, here we are. And here’s where we’ve been.
