That's where they go! They live south of there in Ferrera. Most of their friends send their kids to the local schools (a Mormon family homeschools) and they learn Italian through immersion. From what I saw and they told me, it worked fine for almost all of the kids and they made tons of friends. A lot of play doesn't take that much talking.

You're not buying, right? ;-) You'll be able to find housing, I have faith.

Heck no! Today the hubs is convinced they're sending us to Alaska. I guess we have the tiniest shot at Ft Drum which would be AWESOME but it isn't likely.

Livi is pretty anxious and easily stressed and Italian immersion would just freak her the hell out and she would cry endlessly.

Woah, appifanie, just saw this thread! We just got orders to JFC Naples, report in March, so we'll be on the other side of Italy come spring! Italy meetup! Italy meetup!!

There's a direct assignment housing policy in Naples, but it sounds like it's been full for most of the other people we know, so we're hopeful to live out in town. But the uncertainty!! Have you started the overseas screening process yet? I'm remembering now what a pain in the butt it was! Just got new photos for our official passports this morning.
