Let The Graduation Festivities Begin!

Today, we start the process of graduation. I actually realized that I haven't really explained much of what is going on, so long story short- the next twenty months are filled with many schools, training, and lots of  {worthy} stress. Basically, it's as if Will is going to Helicopter Pilot school, and the first step in that journey is becoming a Warrant Officer, which happens to be pretty prestigious. He wasn't interested in being a Warrant Officer just to be one, but when you add "Flight" in front of "Warrant", he knew that was the career choice he wanted to make. In case I haven't mentioned, his parents both put in twenty-two years on helicopters and whatnot for the Air Force, so again, it's a pretty logical choice.

Warrant Officer Candidate School, or WOCS for short, is pretty much Basic Training all over again, but it's a much bigger deal after the fact. We have family coming in town, there are classes we attend, ceremonies, and mucho excitement. It's going to be some early mornings and long days, but totally worth it. Don't worry, I'll take pictures.






Technically, the festivities kinda started yesterday when I got to take him HOME instead of going to church. Okay, so we are bad and missed Easter Sunday, but c'mon, he hasn't been home in a month and we only had eight hours together! I know this sounds like a strange arrangement, but it is the Army's way of giving the soldiers a 'day pass' to decompress before all the hullabaloo of graduation. I don't think I need to go into detail about how we 'decompressed', I'll just say...I'm not frustrated anymore, and I'm not as upset about having a house full of family when he officially comes home.


Happy Monday, and live a little!
