A Man in Uniform

One of the biggest changes to our lives in the last couple months (there have been soooo many!) is that we're now officially an Air Force family!  This summer, Scott completed officer training, the final step before his official assignment began in August.  He was gone all of July at training in Alabama (yeah, the deep south smack dab in the middle of summer...how fun does that sound?!) and I picked him up at the end of the month as an Air Force Captain.

[And during that month, I gained a huge, HUGE amount of respect for all the spouses of deployed military - wow.  I had one month without him and he was still in the country; I cannot even come close to imagining what it would be like to go through a year of deployment with your spouse halfway across the world!]

Here he is, being all officer-y:
There were a few ceremonies the families got to attend during graduation, several of which involved lots of marching.  Look at my man there, leader of the second element from the left!
Looking good:
Taking the oath:
Celebration time!
Proud wife and proud parents:
With his roommate for the month and now a close friend of ours:
Overjoyed to have him back by my (our!) side:


  1. So glad he's back! Also, you are a gorgeous pregnant lady! Congrats!

  2. Glad you two are reunited and congrats on your baby to be - you look wonderful!
