A Little Introduction

Hello everyone out there in BlogStalk land. I am so happy you came back to see us. I would like to make a little introduction. People, meet the KC 135.

This guy is what my wonderful husband, Justin, will be flying for the Air national Guard for the next 10+ years. Its a great big refueler that fuels up planes as they fly over the North Pole. He will be running a "last stop" gas station in the sky, of sorts.
We are so happy and relieved that he got this position. After his interview he has been told that he would find out by the end of this week and if he wasn't chosen, he would get a letter a week later. By Thursday, we were discouraged and by Friday night we had accepted that he wasn't chosen. Much to our surprise they called him at 10:00 this morning (who calls on a Saturday???) and let him know that he was chosen. We are so happy he was chosen and I am happy that he is happy because I have never seen anyone work so hard for anything. I don't believe there was anything else left in the world he could have done to secure a position.
Anyway, I will leave you with one last imagine of this ginormous plane that my husband will be flying. Thanks all for your love and support!
