Rolland got orders to report to Fort Drum New York. We both know that PCSing is part of army life, but this move is going to be really hard. We have had such an amazing time in Northern Virginia and we have some great friends. But God has a plan and He is soverign - so I am putting it out there, I will be happy at Fort Drum.
For those who aren't sure where this place is (I was one of them) its about 67 miles north of Syracuse, about 30 min. from the Canadian border. And yes, they do get a LOT of snow!! These are pictures
from a couple of years ago. They got 146 inches in 2 weeks! But, I keep telling myself, thats not average. Average is just 110 inches! I am from "Snowflake" afterall, I CAN DO THIS!! The unit is 10th Mountain Division and Rolly will be deplying to either Iraq or Afghanistan in the winter/spring. We knew our time was coming, but right now we are just concentrating on the move and being together!

There are so many pictures and great memories from my vacation. We spent some time in Snowflake with my parents for 4th of July and Pioneer Days. We went to Disneyland, California Adventure, and San Deigo. And spent some time with Rolland's family in Mesa. It was so much fun, but after five weeks without my hubby I was ready to come home! It was so nice to see those of you who I actually did get a chance to see (Thanks to Pioneer Days!!) Enjoy the slide show!
