Walkin' In A Winter Wonderland

One of the greatest things about living at Fort Leonard Wood is the variety of experiences that you will enjoy. The weather here in theOzarks is never boring! In fact, the old joke in this part of the country is that if you don't like the weather, just wait 24 hours... it will change! Winters bring snow and ice, intermingled with sunny 70 degree days. Summers bring heat waves and thunderstorms and the occassional crisp, cool evening. Spring and fall are by far the favorites in this region as they bring lush grass, gentle breezes and the most  breath-taking fall foliage. Embracing each season and each day is the key to happiness in the Ozarks. Make the most of it! Be prepared in the winter months by having snow shovels, rock salt and ice scrapers on hand. And definitely have a few sleds ready to go as the hills in this area are absolutely perfect for a snowy day of fun memories! This week we're gearing up for more snow. This means people will be stocking up on items like milk, bread and diapers... things that they won't want to get out in the snow to get should it accumulate as they're predicting. It also means kids will be watching the local television stations in anticipation of seeing their schools' names listed under the School Closings. Moms will be checking the closets and cabinets for hot chocolate, warm mittens and snow boots. And people all over the Fort Leonard Wood area will be walking in a winter wonderland!

Home Is Where The Army Sends You

This week the Walker Team will be saying "farewell" to General Martin who will be leaving Fort Leonard Wood for a new assignment in Kuwait. "Farewell" is a word we seem to use frequently in the military community. We don't say "goodbye" because most likely, our paths will cross again. Time and time again we've come across friends that we've made at previous duty stations. That's one of the amazing benefits of being a military family- no matter how many moves you make, no matter how many friends you say "farewell" to, you're still a part of a bigger family. A forever family. As military families, we understand that "Home is where the Army sends you." And home is what you make it. It's easy to focus on the temporary state of a move, knowing you'll only be living in a certain area for 2 or 3 years. But many opportunities are missed with this kind of mindset. We've found that embracing your time at each duty station, putting roots down, making friends and getting involved in the community are the keys to a positive experience, wherever the Army sends you.

If you're new to the Fort Leonard Wood area or will be joining our community soon, we'd love for you to touch base with us. Let us help you make the most of your time here in the beautiful Missouri Ozarks and let us help you make this "home".
