The Latest

Sky filled out the paperwork for the Army Reserve. They have him his new unit patches. He has a few appointments for medical clearance, and they've ordered him new uniforms. He received the schedule for drill weekends. Now, we wait.

He signed up for a January AIT school, and if that isn't open, a February school. These are the active Army schools that are several months long and are held in Georgia. If he doesn't get in to either of those, he'll have to do the much shorter, several week Reserve course here instead. And as odd as it may sound, we are both hoping for the January or February longer schools. It would put our family in such a better place financially, and though it would not be fun for him to be gone that long, he'd be in the states and not in a war zone. Please pray that there will be an opening in the longer AIT!

I'll see him in uniform very soon, and may even go with him to December's short drill, because it's more of a Christmas open house for the families.

I just wanted to give everyone an update, and to thank you for all your prayers and well wishes on this new journey!
