Off we go into the wild blue yonder
There are some that already know this, but last year Skylar decided to join the Air Force. It was a big decision, and definitely not one that we took lightly. We were living in Phoenix at the time, and things just kept going wrong with jobs, and the places we lived. We were frustrated and in a rut. We both knew that we needed a change. A BIG one. So, he met with a recruiter for the Air Force. I will not forget the look on his face when he walked out of that office. It was relief. From the moment he walked in there, he knew it was what he was supposed to do. I felt the same. Everything clicked after that. We moved back to Thatcher, so Skylar could work before he left for basic training. He leaves August the 29th for Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio, TX. He'll be gone for two months, but I know I'll be fine. Neither of us have felt more sure about anything than the decision to join the military. I know we'll be blessed for it.
