A couple weeks before graduation our household goods were packed and loaded up. It was sad to see our house empty, knowing that we would soon be leaving Alabama and great friends! I will always hold the two years we spent in AL close + dear to my heart. We made some great friends that we hope to see again someday since we are all military and never stay in one place too long. B and I had some great times and some really tough times, but we made it through 2 years of B attending the most difficult flight school with smiles on our faces (most of the time)!
Moving Day. Bye, bye stuff, we will see you in several months!

The week before graduation we moved out of our empty house and to a great little cabin by the lake on post.
The days leading up to graduation were a whirlwind and I was disappointed I did not get to enjoy the last few days in Alabama by relaxing at the cabin. It had a great view of the lake and we only enjoyed the view from the screened-in porch a few times that week!

Attempting an auto-rotationWe were blessed to have my dad, uncle & aunt visit for a couple days to enjoy the graduation festivities. The day before graduation included family day and the graduation ball. It made for a crazy busy day!
Leaving for Family Day
During family day B was presented with an award qualifying him to fly Sikorsky Blackhawks.
After the awards we went back outside to learn more about the helicopter and crawl inside to check it out.
