It's been awhile...

It has been a little bit since I updated the blog! I just got back to Va. Beach today so that I can be here for the Navy to move all of our stuff. I was home for the last 2 weeks and it was a nice break from the chaos before I left. Although, I did quite a bit while I was home! Both of our cars are sold, the washer and dryer are sold, I took a couple of day trips here and there and many other things.

AJ has been flying quite often! He is really enjoying himself in his new squadron and getting all these flights in! He was in Singapore for 5 days at the beginning of the month. I do not have any pictures, but he said it was a lot like New York City! We should get there again in our 3 year tour in Japan, so if I get to go, I will make sure there are some pictures to share with all of you!!

I hope that everyone's summer is coming to a good end! I will be enjoying the beginning of the fall season with all of you that are in PA, as my flight for Japan is not until September 28th. Keep an eye for more posts as I get closer to leaving for our new adventure!

Weekly update...

Just a quick update on some things....

AJ got to South Korea last weekend and headed out to the George Washington on Monday. He got a 3 day rest period and then had some extra time off because they had 3 "no-fly" days. He had his first flight today and, I am assuming, it went well. (I have not talked to him about it yet.) He is all settled into his room, with one other guy (which is much better than the alternative of 7 other guys) and he actually has a computer in his room! We have been able to e-mail a little bit and keep in touch about all the happenings over there and here.

And on the home front... thank you to my wonderful parents and in-laws for helping move a bunch of stuff out of VA Beach this weekend and then driving it home for me!! All that is left down here are the things that are going to Japan! And I do not have to pack a single piece of it! :-)

I will be heading home for a couple of weeks before I come back to supervise the move at the end of the month. I am looking forward to (hopefully) seeing a bunch of you while I am up there! Lots of love to everyone!
