So... here it goes! Our exit from the military. And I do mean WE because, wow, spouse involvement in the military is basically a daily thing. It has had serious highs, serious lows, and lots of uncertainty at times, but something I don't think Dewy or I will ever regret or not find wonderful memories in. We really had it very good as far as military life goes and the jobs and work time Dewy had. But the friends, oh the FRIENDS! The biggest factor for me in getting out was that I HATE saying goodbye to friends. I am so tired of it. It is SO hard and I want to be somewhere where I can not have a distant feeling of knowing I'll be leaving at some point and leaving my sweet friends.
Dewy, on the other hand, is ready to move on to civilian work, and I hope he likes it :))))
Here we go.... the final ceremony of ceremonies in the Army! Holy smokes!
This was Dewy's change out of command, but for us it felt like a farewell to the army as well. It has been one heck of a ride.
Dewy gave a wonderful speech, and was given a few awards he hadn't told me about beforehand! That sneak!!
My right hand women in the FRG. They basically ran it for me!! I love that Kandie and Mandy!!
Grammy and Michael came down from Utah for a few days to celebrate with us. I just LOVE them! It was a wonderful weekend that they could be apart of. The boys weren't pleased at all that Grammy was there ;) I mean, look at those faces!!
the best :)
Tucker had his hands by his eyes in every photo we tried to take.... haha!
One of the girls from my young women's class made Dewy a cake for the occasion :))) HOW SWEET!!!!
