I'm a teacher who is following her husband where ever his career in the Air Force takes us. We've been through a 6 month seperation for training. We've made a move from the city to a small town in the middle of nowhere. We've adopted a new furbaby. I've found a new job. We've been through a deployment. Through all of this, we've learned to embrace change and all that it brings.
2009 was a challenging year full of ups and downs. It has definately been a year of growth for me. I know that God has made me a much stronger person as a result of all that we have been through. I also know His work is not over. Here's a recap of the year...
January 3-Sent Anthony back to Tech School in his new Trailblazer. Very sad to see him go.
March 19-Anthony graduated Tech School and got to come home. I couldn't be happier.
April 9-My last day teaching 2nd grade. I resigned early so that I could be with Anthony. After teaching that day, I drove to be with my husband.
April 15-We moved into our new home.
June 7-Sampson joined our family.
September 1-Hired to teach Kindergarten, a week after school started.
November 26-Our first Thanksgiving meal cooked at our house. Mom and dad came to visit. Mom might have done most of the cooking.
December 9-Found out Anthony would be deploying in May.
December 18-Sinus surgery #3.
December 24-Celebrated Christmas just the two of us. It was a white Christmas! We had a wonderful time! (blog on that to come later)
December 28-Finally able to go home and see both of our families.
