Well we finally received the news we have been waiting for and its official, Aloha Hawaii!! Andy received the official orders about a week ago and ciaos has settled in. If any of you are familiar with a military move you know the exactly what ciaos I speak of. Briefing after briefing, Andy is scheduling packing, moving, and traveling days. We are currently moving into my parents home, packing 3 different shipments for the movers and making our holiday arrangements, all while working full time jobs. "This is so much fun" I find myself saying alot lately and then Andy reminds that we are going on an all-expense paid vacation for 2 1/2 years.
The exact details of what Andy's new job is going to be is a little hairy. We know he will be filling an ac/rc position training the Hawaiian National Guard in Hilo and that they run the unit on "Aloha Time", which seems to be the biggest perk. We will be living on the island of Oahu near Barber's Point and I finally get to take my dream job as a SAHM. We are researching and reading all we can about the area and the other islands and have discovered that this PCS really might be a dream come true. I could not have asked for a better assignment and I think I am most grateful for the fact that I do not have to stress about another deployment. Check out our soon to be home.
