Post-Graduation Update

I'm sure you've seen the pictures, but if not, S graduated boot camp and even earned a sharp shooter pin while he was there! It was a very difficult time for both of us and I'm so glad it's over. Now, on to the next adventure! Here are the top 10 questions I get asked and the answers. We are extremely excited about Monterey and all that the West Coast has to offer. 

1. When are you moving? As of right now, I am scheduled to leave in May.
2. How are you getting there? The Navy will pack and move all of our belongings. Eli and I will be driving cross-country and transporting some things that we will need immediately in my car. 
3. Are you going to teach? No way. I need a break. Plus, I don't want to get stuck in a contract like I am now. 
4. Well, then what are you going to do? I'm going to nanny! I'm so excited for a change. 
5. What is S doing? He is learning a foreign language in Monterey, CA.
6. Isn't that difficult? Yes, but I have full confidence in him. I am attempting to learn the language as well so that we can speak it at home and I can help him study. 
7. How long will you guys be there? He graduates next spring. 
8. Where will you go next? We don't have a clue. We won't find out until closer to graduation. 
9. Where will you live in Monterey? We are currently number 10 on the list for base housing so we will have a house by the time I get out there! 
10. Are you scared? Actually, not at all. I am surprised by my excitement for the unknown and the challenges ahead of us. All of the difficult paperwork has been submitted and I've learned a lot through reading other wives' blogs and following checklists. (I'm in LOOOVE with checklists.) When I called transportation they actually thought I grew up in a military family because I knew so much. I was flattered. If you're going to do something, do it right. Hooyah!
