No end of year financial update yet, as I haven't had the urge to count up our net worth yet. I know that not much has changed, except that the housing market did continue to grow during 2015 in the Silicon Valley, which affects both net worth, and a solid growing rental income.

We moved to Europe in Oct last year, kids are in the local school here, and we are enjoying the adventure of living in a new country. My wife did get a part time job*, which helps out on our ongoing expenses, but we are also living our typical below our means lifestyle, of course with selected expenditures like spending the summer in the south of France this coming summer.

* My wife's part time job allows us to utilize various benefits here including free healthcare.

Still planning on heading back to the States by the end of this year. But we are setting some roots here for the possible future.
