Only thirteen days until I’m there too!
So, I was filling out a job application this morning and I needed the address of The Goddard School. So I went to their website and when I was there, I found that there was a testimonial about my co-teacher Ms Peggy and myself written by one of the parents! Anyway, I got really excited, so Yay me!
I’m going crazy! We’re so close to the end of our time apart (which has been eight months and about a week at this point!), but it can’t get here fast enough. There isn’t even much for me to do to get ready for the move, I just have to wait and that makes it even harder!!
In other news, Thomas arrived safely in Camp Pendleton this past week and is staying in the barracks until we get a house. He has a nice long weekend with Monday and Tuesday off which really helps him to have time to get housing and move reimbursement and finding a car etc. taken care of. Unlike me, who has almost nothing to do, Thomas will be quite busy for the next few days
Not much going on on my end of things, and Thomas didn’t feel like posting when I asked him so that’s all for now. Have a marvelous Monday and a great week!
Not too long now before we’re California bound! Thomas’ last day of HIMARS class is on Tuesday, then the Marine Corps will send him to Camp Pendleton. It’s looking like I’ll be able to join him at the beginning of September. I’m so excited to actually live in an area with nice weather all year round! Check out the beach that we’ll be living near
Needless to say, I’m a very happy camper!!
Running away from me
This summer has gone by so fast, I can’t believe it’s August already! Here is a look what we have done this summer so far
Thomas graduated from Basic Training in March (which is before summer started, actually, but whatever)
My Grandparents came down from Michigan to visit while Thomas was at MOS school
We went to the Blooms & Butterflies exhibit at the Franklin Park Conservatory.
My last day at work, they were playing with the pirate box.
I miss them like crazy!!
Buster has a new best buddy now that we’re staying with my parents.
I got to go visit Thomas in Lawton the weekend after our anniversary!
Here we are in the Holy City of the Wichitas, right outside of Lawton
I drove up Scott Mountain and I was very scared, but the view was great!
Well, I’m just getting this blog set up. I’ll probably be doing most of the updates, but Thomas will be able to as well so you may hear from him periodically. I’ll do my best to keep everybody up to date with what we are doing, but no promises as to how often I’ll post. Things have been pretty crazy with moving lately, but hopefully things will settle down once we’re in California.
In case anyone hasn’t heard, Thomas finished his field artillery class and got a meritorious promotion to Lance Corporal. On Monday he started his HIMARS class and he has his first test today. He graduates from HIMARS on August 18th. He is definitely ready to get out of Lawton!
