can't get rid of us that easy.

We have some exciting news!

No, I'm not pregnant. Ever since we got married, I can't tell anyone I have exciting news without them going, "You're pregnant?" Sorry, Mom, not this time. Sheesh...

Our exciting news is that last week, R found out what job he'll be doing. Drumroll please... R will be the newest member of a strike fighter squadron stationed at NAS Oceana! If you're not quite sure where Oceana is, it's about 2 miles from our house. That's right, we're not going anywhere!

If you know R at all, you know why this is great news for him. Being in a strike fighter squadron was his very first choice because he'll be working with jets. After everything he's been through in the last year concerning his career, it's awesome for him to still be a vital part of the aviation community and spend his days around F-18's. Also, he gets to wear a flight suit to work, which is pretty much like wearing pajamas. And if you've talked to me about my job search at any point in the last year, you know why this is great news for me. I am finally doing work that I love, with a staff that I love, in a career field that I love. I've also been making friends here in VA, so I'm starting to feel like I'm home for the first time since I left home.

I will have to continue to be careful about what I say on the blog about R's work, but as always I will keep you all updated about how school is going (he just passed the halfway mark!), his new squadron, and eventually, deployment (next year... boo).

And I know I've said this before, but thank you to all our family and friends for wishing R well and keeping him in your thoughts and prayers and supporting me as I support him. After a long year, we finally feel like both of us are doing what we love and we know that we are right in the center of God's plan for our lives.
