|Getting the lowdown on the inside of the Jet from Dad|
First there was casual family day where family got to walk around and see the inside of the jet, the flight simulator, and the inner workings of the squadrons, and a little awards ceremony where the Pilots get awards to highlight their achievements up to this point. My mother and sister in law, my mom from CA and our good friend from IL all came into town to see Jet Pilot graduate. It was nice to have family all around us (as weird as that sounds its not common for us to be around family a lot, but its okay we are used to it by now.), and everyone that came by to congratulate Erik made it all the more special.
Lastly there was a Jet Pilot Party for all the newly "Winged" Pilots to celebrate with the instructors and students and family. It was a good time for grown ups, not so much entertaining for kids but we brought ours along and they just toughed it out for a bit. It was a good time to be had by all and now with the holidays over we are gearing up to pack the house up and move West.
Its going to be chaotic and crazy and overwhelming but honestly-I am excited. I am definitely over living here in the middle of nowhere Mississippi and I kinda miss Target and Starbucks.
Thanks Training Wing One and Fixed Wing Squadron Seven for helping my Beloved acheive his dreams!!
