It's official!

Well, it's been official for a couple of weeks now, I just forgot to post about it! We have made the decision for Tim to go into the Navy. He will be a Navy Pharmacist and will be commissioned as a Lieutenant, probably on the weekend of his graduation from pharmacy school since all of our families will be here and can witness the event. We are really excited about this adventure!

We get to request where our first tour will be, and from what Tim has learned from others who have done this, they really try to honor your first choice. We are going to put in to be in San Diego as our first choice and Norfolk as our second choice. Both of those places have different things that really appeal to us. We should know around May where we will be stationed and Tim will have 5 week officer training in July. After that we will move to where ever we will be and start out 3 year commitment.

We aren't sure if we are going to make this a career move or simply short term. If Tim really loves it, then we will stay in a little longer, but if he wants to move on to something else, then we will do that. I've always told him that as long as he loves what he does, I'll be happy!

We are ready for this next step we will be taking in about 8 months!!
