C's now in his second week of being in Hawaii. Getting settled in to his new temporary barracks, meeting the people he's going to be working with, taking care of business to get the kids and I over there too. The whole first week was spent in-processing and it sounded like a ton of paperwork and nothing fun or cool. Not to mention they were waking him up at 4:00am for PT!
This second week sounds better. He's on a more "normal" schedule and gets to feel more like a regular person. PT at 6:00am, go home for breakfast and a shower, go back to work and then go home in the afternoon. His time after work is actually his own time; he hasn't had that luxury since January.
So now he's found internet access, has his newly exchanged digital camera and I have the first 3 pics that he's sent home. I didn't think to ask, but knowing that he has no car of his own, and no friends with cars yet... these pictures were taken at or near the base exchange and his barracks.
Gotta love the views at these everyday places on Oahu. I imagine there isn't anywhere that's not pretty to look at.
The kids and I will get to go sometime in August! We await the closing on the sale of our house, and then we're outta here! Paradise awaits.
