Hey readers! We’re in the thick of back-to-school madness, but I thought I’d check in with you here. It’s my 8th year of teaching and it never gets any easier at the beginning. It’s always crazy, crazy, crazy, with nothing set in stone until a few weeks in. Never fun, but it’s the nature of the beast.
I started school after a UTA weekend, naturally, so it’s been a long week. This photo was taken last weekend at our annual Family Day event. Quite the change from last year, to actually go home and retrieve my “family.” I can’t wait for DD to really be able to enjoy the festivities of the weekend, from the C-130 Herc “Adventure Tour” to the multiple bounce houses and other carnival-type games. In the meantime, we make a cute picture! She was exactly four months old on this day.
Our D&TF group was out in full force at the Family Day event. Watching them do a drill-down really gets me excited, I’m not going to lie. Seeing the fear and excitement in the faces of those about to undertake BMT and all that the Air Force has to offer really stirs something in me. Like I’ve mentioned on here before, if it weren’t for my acceptance for commissioning (and my young daughter), I’d be considering an MTI tour.
In other good news, I was worried that I’d have to take my PT test in September but recently got a reassuring email – since my profile says I can’t PT for six months, that means I’ll have to test in October, with the commander’s approval, of course [since it’ll be after my testing due date]. That is a huge relief, even though it’s still rapidly approaching and I need to hit the pavement in preparation.
