When I started this blog 8 months ago it was the first day of school for my kids. At the time I wished I had started blogging sooner. You see, our family has been travelling around the world for the past 17 years. I met my husband 19 years ago this month. He was on his first liberty from Aviation Officer Candidate School in Pensacola, Florida. I was working my way through college at the time. Twenty months later, we were married and he was wrapping up his flight training there.
Since then we have lived on each coast of the US and on 3 different continents and have travelled to over 20 countries. In 1 month, he retires from the Navy after serving 7 1/2 years in the Army Reserves and 19+ in the Navy. My kids know nothing else, and we are excited and nervous at the same time to leave the military life. We are moving to a city with a population of just over 500. A lot of my husband’s family lives there. He moved back to the town when he was 12 (the same age as our youngest son). His father was in the Army as well, so he has been connected to the military most of his life. We have visited there many times for holidays and summer vacations, so the kids and I have gotten to know the area pretty well.
I have enjoyed our journeys around our world. Tomorrow I will continue my reminiscing by sharing our experiences in Guam.
