Spouse Flight

Not too long after we were in our house, a spouse flight was scheduled. This is an opportunity for the spouses to get to ride in a C-130J. It was a fun experience riding in the plane that our husbands fly all the time while getting to know other women dealing with the same lifestyle. It would have been fun to have our husbands flying it or riding with us, but I'm not complaining, it was still neat.

Because he does it everyday and I don't see much of the actual flying I tend to forget what an awesome job he has.

Getting to know the neighbors

When we made our first move, I expected our neighbors to bring us cookies and welcome us to the neighborhood.

Since we had apples on our tree in our backyard, I was excited to make Apple Crisp and took that too them instead of cookies. Sam has many grandparents next door. Across the street lives Maria, north of us lives a couple Klaus and Irma, and to the South of us Irmela. They each speak some English/broken except Irma doesn't speak any. A perfect opportunity to practice what German I do pick up. They are all so sweet.
