Hello my fellow bloggers/friends/partners in crime!! I am back!! Feel like I have been gone forever, I have so many post to catch up on. I miss you all and reading about what has been going on in your lives. So here has been my last week.
First, we were called and offered a house on base 5 months ahead of schedule and of course we accepted!! So excited! We had just gotten home from a fabulous time in San Diego with some great friends to wonderful news. This past Thursday we went up for our sons orientation at Arizona State and it was really fun, I am so excited for him and all the great opportunities he will have. We were lucky enough to meet his Senior Naval Instructor for his ROTC but the Marine Officer was TDY so we couldn't meet him. I can tell Michael will be up to the challenge of getting this brand new ROTC Unit off the ground with the other new cadets.
My husband was so silly in the book store, honestly I think he purchased every maroon and gold cheesy college knick-knack, t-shirt, cup and decal he could find..even Sparky made it in our car (ASU Mascot).
After we left Tempe we went up to Kingman to visit family and had a great day hanging out with our niece and nephew at the pool and just hanging out and catching up. People that are not military have no idea how precious it is to get to spend any time with your family. Also my nephew (my sisters oldest) was pinned, he is now an Army WO and we are SO proud..I could burst! He is now in flight training for about 2 years and his wife, also Army is heading back for her 6th deployment, yep you heard it 6th!
So that was our last 5 days, busy but exciting all at the same time. We are moving in to our new house on Wednesday and our Internet is getting all hooked up on Thursday and I have lots of pics to share. I can't wait to get it all done, our shipment comes Friday so you know what we will be doing all weekend.
Man, I really missed you all, and my blog..hope to be blogging more regular in a week or two just wanted to let you all know I am still here!

Yay! It sounds like things are falling into place.
I can so relate to the bookstore visit! We visited Callie's new college bookstore a couple of weeks ago. Nick and I both came out with water bottles, Callie got a hoodie, and we made a list of things we want for Christmas. (Mom and Dad shirts)
