The last month, it’s actually here.

5 May

When you’re told that you have four months until your husband leaves for basic training it seems like a long time, but man has this time flown by. We have a month till he “ships out”. Seems so surreal that it’s right around the corner. May is going to fly by more quickly than all the rest. I really need to just focus on enjoying every moment we can fit in together and not be so sad and stressed about him leaving. Nothing ruins happy times and memories more than tears.

We both have two more weeks at work then Scott will have his last day at Best Buy, and I will have around 2 weeks of vacation to spend time with Scott and help him get everything ready for boot camp.

We will get to celebrate our first year anniversary, although a month early, in Jackson Hole Wyoming where we celebrated our honeymoon. It’s pretty special to us that we will have that time set aside to just soak in the last year of our lives and celebrate the start of our life journey together.

While in Wyoming, we will also spend some time on my family ranch in Pinedale. We both enjoy going there because it’s so nice to forget the rest of the world and just relax. The world seems to move at a slower pace there and we really enjoy that relaxing feeling.

After our week in Wyoming is up we’ll come back to Junction and he’ll spend time with his friends and family and get all the goodbyes in. It will be a strange feeling for him to say goodbye because he’s never been away from here for more than 2 weeks at a time.

On (June 4th) Monday, dreaded Monday, we’ll make the trip over to Denver. I’m not exactly sure of what all happens on Monday and the day after but at some point on Tuesday we will say our final goodbye as he boards the plane for San Antonio. It will be a long 2 months of missing him but I know Scott will do great and I can’t stress enough how very proud of him I am!

This month is going to be a whirlwind of fun times as well as emotions, but I know our Jesus is looking out for us every step of the way. How very comforting!
