.flight school.

This week, my husband flew the last flight of flight school. 
It's been a long journey. A really long journey. 

Nearly 10 years in the Marine Corps. 
7 years of marriage.
26 months of flight school.
3 kids. (We even had one during flight school).
Countless hours of studying, planning, and flying. 
 I thought today would be a good day to take a look at just a few of the big milestones that led us to this point.
Summer 2008 - Braum graduated from Officer Candidate School
Summer 2010 - Braum graduated from the University of Washington
Fall 2011 - Braum was commissioned as an officer in the Marine Corps

Summer 2013 - First day Braum got to wear his flight suit!

Summer 2014 - The day we found out Braum would be flying helicopters!
Next week, Braum will get his Aviator's Wings of Gold.
And we find out what specific helicopter he will be flying. And where we will be living for the next 3 years. 
It's exciting. It's nerve-wracking.
His winging will mark the end of one chapter of our lives, and the beginning of another. 
And we can't wait.
