Mike is now officially a Combat Engineer. He graduated on Thursday with 14 other guys. I'm so proud! This year has been such a new experience for him and he has handled it so well. Too bad I didn't get any photos from him actually on stage receiving his certificate. My camera was acting up right as it was his turn, of coarse.
Its been also a crazy weekend with the "moving" stuff happening. Its going to be so nice when I have other stuff to talk about then this. We drove my car to Virginia yesterday, (4 hours there, 4 hours back) for it to be shipped. Estimated time of arrival is 30 days. Another thing off the list, feels good to be done with that.
Because we have shipped my car, Mike needs to sell his in order for us to buy one the day after we arrive in HI. So we wont have a car to get us to the airport on Monday to take the dogs to their flight. We called around all morning trying to find a cargo/ mini van to rent to be able to have enough room for our suitcases and dog crates. I guess no company allows vans to be dropped off at a different location other then the location you pick it up from. I thought that was the whole idea. To be able to drive it somewhere and drop it off where ever you ended up. To make a really really long agonizing story shorter, we are picking up a moving truck later tonight.... So driving to the airport huge truck...yep! Then we are going to stay in Raleigh for one night. There is no point in us coming home because the drive is so long... so taxi's for the rest of our time there. I just cant wait to get their so I don't have to think about this anymore.
So tonight a few more errands. Maybe a couple of drinks are on the menu too.
