I have been on a serious hiatus lately. With the baby growing and me being exhausted and Jet Pilot finishing up Flight School it has been BEYOND CRAZY!!
BBBUUUUTTTT.....through it all God has seen fit to bless us abundantly again.
Naval Tradition dictates that when the student Aviator completes their final flight in Advanced Flight School their loved ones get to HOSE THEM DOWN WITH A FIRE HOSE as their form of congrats!! (Crazy right??)But as one of his loved ones, I am totally down. LOL.
After that water show, the Big Kahuna (CO or XO at the squadron) pins "Soft Wings" (nametag with actual Aviator wings on them, its just unofficial until the Winging Ceremony) on the Student and welcomes them as part of the crew now. The Naval Aviator Crew.
|Bonnie getting ready to spray Dad|
|Jet Pilot was running to get his "Wetting Down"|
|And she got him!!|
|The XO changing out his name tage|
|And then "tacking" it on, so it stays!|
|The final BEAUTIFUL "Soft Winged" product!|
No pressure right.
But in my heart of hearts I know God has an AMAZING plan for us and I know that letting Him take charge (even though I really do enjoy leading the helm on our ship...lol) is the best thing.
Stay tuned for the results of our next adventure!!
