For so long now, we have been anticipating the day we find out where we are going next. Find out where the next chapter in life would be based from. On Tuesday, we got word that we are penciled in for a grand move to San Diego and a home spot on the Reagan. I’m so excited and nervous that I really can’t think about it!
Lowell spoke with the detailer and he said that the only opening the Navy has right now is on the Reagan. So, unless something monumental happens to change the plan, we are headed to sunny So Cal in November! Naturally, it isn’t official until it actually happens, when it comes to the military, nothing is concrete until it has happened, so until then, it’s Jell-O. ;)
Lowell will go to Steam Plant Maintenance School when we get out there. That lasts for 2-2 1/2 months. Then, he’ll report to the Reagan. But, the Reagan is leaving for an up-to-9 month deployment in January(!!!), so he may have to fly out to meet it somewhere. (We know about the deployment because our good friends, the Perry’s, are in San Diego and Stephen is stationed on the Reagan.) It’s going to be great to have friends, the Perry’s, and our other friends, the Eckel’s, who are also moving out there this summer, not to mention my family and so many friends an hour+ north of there as well … Especially with an immediate deployment for Lowell. There is alot that is going to happen in these next months leading up to our move, and ofcourse while we’re living a new kind of Navy life. Stay tuned for the exciting adventures of our “Deployment Days”!!
