I haven’t posted about our lives in a while because it’s just been crazy!
It all started on Assignment night, almost a month ago now. Assignment night was the day where we found out the plane Nick will be flying from here on out and where. This is the day most soon-to-be pilots (and spouses) wait for all year.
It starts out with a roast of each student pilot, then a presentation of what they are flying. It’s all pretty exciting to watch, and at times, even suspenseful.
As most of you know now, Nick was assigned to the KC-10 to Travis AFB, located in Fairfield, CA. We are ecstatic! This was the first choice for plane and location among a list of 25 others–which is simply AMAZING.
So much hard work and dedication went into making all this happen (on Nick’s part).
The 12-14 hour days, the endless hours of studying, the long flights…and it’s great to see that it all paid off. I can’t truly understand all that went into getting these wings, but am so proud of Nick and is class for what they’ve accomplished.
So, what’s next?
We’re moving to California the week of September 12 for Nick to start another round of training, this time, specifically for the KC-10. ONLY TWO WEEKS FROM NOW!!
There’s a lot to do to get ready for the move, but we’re excited (not that we don’t love Mississippi)…
Once we get all packed and figure out a place to live, we’re going to road-trip our stuff across the U.S. — a five to six day trip (which I hope to blog about). Can’t wait!
In the coming days, I’ll be posting more on graduation day festivities (including pictures) and our new soon-to-be hometown, so keep an eye out for that!
