United States Navy...Accelerate Your Life

Well, Austin is now officially an Officer Candidate of the United States Navy.

For the last few months to a year the "accelerate" part of the Navy motto has seemed a bit, er, reaching, to say the least. Considering that we waited for months and months to find out what was going on (apply, test, submit, jk, submit again...ok you are in, we will call you when we know more) I for one did NOT expect this part of the process to move so swiftly.

Austin got the call about OCS (Officer Candidate School) on Thursday April 10, which told him he would be leaving for Newport, RI on the 26th...of April. 16 days?!

Needless to say these past two weeks have been a blur, and if they are any kind of precedent for the rest of our life, I thought this little blog may be the answer to keep everyone informed of our comings and goings and how the military has taken over!

In the mean time, Austin leaves on Saturday and I am trying to reconcile myself to the fact that we are in an 1800's relationship for the next 13 weeks. (letters only. bah.)

More to come!
