One Crazy Hectic Wonderful Week!

The last week was a whirlwind of emotion and excitement as I flew down to Montgomery Alabama. On Saturday the 17th I joined Paul at Maxwell Air Force Base to see him graduate from Basic Officer Training. This was the first time Paul had seen my enormous pregnant belly(not really -but when Paul left there was little sign of me being pregnant) and so this was an exciting event. On Tuesday the 20th Paul was commissioned (by his flight mate Dan Bigley) and pinned for the first time as a Second Lieutenant by me! After this very special commissioning ceremony there was the public graduation outside. This was a very nice ceremony that included a fighter jet flyover(Paul thought this was the best part) and the famous tossing of the cap.

After graduation Paul and I started the first leg of our long trip home. From Tuesday to Friday we drove about 4-5 hours each night and stopped in Tennessee and Cleveland to see family and share in their Thanksgiving festivities. On Friday afternoon we finally made our way home and finished the Thanksgiving week by having our third and final turkey dinner with the Baier Family(my parents and siblings) that Saturday.

Happy Day!

Although I love the food and will miss the girls, today is a happy day because it was my last day at the Pittsford Wegmans Patisserie! Now starts all the preparation for our move to Sembach, Germany, where Paul will work as a meteorologyst for the Air Force. In two short weeks (exactly) I will fly to Alabama to see Paul graduate from OTS (Officer Training School) and from there we will have only a short period of time until we fly to Frankfurt. Im so excited!
