It's Official!

Today a new chapter in our life began....Matt's is officially enlisted in the Air National Guard. This has been a long 10 months! It has been emotionally exhausting. We still have to wait on a security clearance before he can go to Basic Training in San Antonio, TX. Looks like he will be leaving the 1st of January. After Basic (which is 9 weeks) he will attend Tech School. This is will be right there in San Antonio as well and is 10 weeks long (we think...not 100% certain). It is going to be a rough 5 months but with the help of our families and friends we will get through and our life will be better because of this decision. We are really excited about this new chapter...even the kids are excited!

His recruiter was kind and took a picture of us...I look horrible!
