There are sooooo many things to be thankful for, but for me in this current season, I am most thankful for this...
So, as many of you know Derek began his application process for a commission as an Air Force Officer in September of 2015. All was submitted and finalized just before Thanksgiving of that year. We waited and waited for an answer that would change our lifestyles tremendously for four, longer-than-usual, months.
In March of this year, we learned that he was in fact selected (read more about that here) and we had just a few months to make quite large, and quite literal moves. We quickly and strategically set some plans in motion in preparation for Derek’s departure for Officer Training School. We were advised to anticipate him leaving as early as July…but as many of you know, that did not happen. (Read more about that here).
