A few months ago my husband was notified that he was being considered for a post command. After months of waiting he was told that he was passed over. He was bummed of course but decided not to let it get him down. There are only 5 years left until retirement after all. Last week he was told that we're being transferred. I say "we" because I and the children are part of the navy as much as he is. So, April 1st he is to report to Virginia. Our new assignment. The kids and I will stay here until the end of the school year. Then make the move to join Dan. In approx. 2 weeks he and I will make a trip over and get ourselves on the list for housing. He was told that by the time the kids and I join him in June we'll have our housing. Crossing fingers here because those who know the military know they don't do things quickly...Unless you're being deployed.

I'm looking at this as a new adventure. I am a little sad to be leaving the west coast. I've only ever lived here. How different can Virginia be? There are beaches right. I'm really sad about leaving our church and all of my groups. I just hope we can find a worship home that we love and feel welcome and all that good stuff.

I love this little picture so I had to share it.

My daughter is most concern about her skating club. She is sure, without a doubt, that she won't be able to skate in Virginia. I think she researched this. I, on the other hand happen to know there is a very nice rink and I've already contacted them about her lessons, competing and skate club.
