Remember how I told y’all 2016 was full of changes? Well, I wasn’t kidding! Not only will we be welcoming a little one this fall but we’ll also be moving in November! (Does that sound scary to anyone else? Nope, just me? Ok moving on then.)
I’m a little sad to be leaving Hawaii–despite a rocky start, it’s been a good home and an unforgettable experience for us these past four years–but I’m also excited to be starting a new chapter in our Army adventure.
Now I know what you’re wondering, WHERE ARE YOU GOING? Well, I’ll give you a few hints.
- It’s somewhere cold and snowy.
- The name of the state is two words.
- It’s in the Eastern time zone.
- This state is home to the largest cities in the US.
Did you guess New York?
I’ll admit Fort Drum was not our first choice for a new duty station, but because of a problem with paperwork getting lost multiple times during Zach’s reenlistment process, it was the best option available to us. And now that I’ve looked into the base and the surrounding area, I think we’re really going to enjoy it. Well, everything besides the temperature that is!
This will be our first “real” PCS so I would appreciate any moving tips you can spare and if you have any suggestions on how to travel via plane with a dog and a two-month-old without losing your mind, I would be forever grateful.
For all my military spouses out there, have any of you lived at Fort Drum? What were your favorite things to do/see?
