I havent had many chances to blog lately. I have sat down and started typing a couple of times in the past week or so, and then someone cries, or wakes up, or falls down etc, and i forget what i was doing lol.
Wes and i have been doing a lot of talking, and planning for our future lately. Its so hard, with kids, to make decisions. It's not all about me anymore, and its not all about him. So we have to think so carefully about the decisions we make, to ensure we are making the best possible one for our kids sake.
One of the big decisions we have made, is that I am starting school again. I have a year to go until i finish my bachelors, and we found the perfect school that goes right along with RBC's curriculum pretty much, so i was able to transfer everything in. I start the 21st, and i will be done in May of next year. After that, we will decide if i want to join the navy as an officer, or get my Masters in Counseling education to be an elementary school guidance counselor.
We have also decided that wes is going to start on his degree. I say start, but really he already is almost halfway done. He has taken courses on his deployments, and has a lot of college credits in the field of electronics with his training for the navy. So he is going to start working on his degree in electronics engineering from ECPI. Their program is excelerated, so he will be done ithin two years by taking 2 classes every 5 weeks. After he finishes that, he will be able to become an officer in the navy. Which leads us to our even biggest decision of them all.......
When he becomes an officer, he will have to go to OCS, which is officer candidate school, for 12 weeks. OCS is in annapolis maryland. After he completes that, he will have to do 24 weeks in Athens Georgia. During this time, me and the girls will be living in VA. Probably gonna rent a place for 6 months. After that, we will try for orders to san diego.
We think the next 3 years will be the best time for us to ogo to san diego. We want to live there for one 3 year tour in our life. We think its best to do it while the girls are still young. They will be 2 and 3 when we get there. That way, they will be 5 and 6 when we move to VA, and they can go to the same school system the rest of the time until they graduate, with the same friends and stuff.
So, thats our plan.
