We're moving again!
Don't worry, we're not going far.
I just realized I didn't do much of an update on moving anyways. So here's the scoop...
As I mentioned before, we have been stationed at Ft. Bragg! Ben completed OSUT and Airborne school, and immediately headed to Bragg. Unfortunately, getting the girls and I moved up with him turned out to be more difficult than we expected. We couldn't schedule the movers to get our things until Ben was able to attend a briefing (that happens only once a week). He missed this briefing 4 times (due to various things he wasn't able to get out of) and was finally able to go last week.
When he missed the briefing the second time, we realized that it could be a while before we got our family back together with our belongings. So! we made the decision (rather quickly) to load up my mom's van with as much stuff as we could and just go on up to be with Ben. And I'm so glad we did. Tricia so graciously rode up with me and the girls (and the cats) so that she could drive the van back (and help me - which I definitely needed on that trip).
Thankfully getting a house wasn't a problem. We're basically camping in our home with a very small amount of our things. Funny thing is, now that I'm pregnant, we actually qualify for a bigger house! I was just able to get official proof of pregnancy from my midwife yesterday, and we are now all set to move at the end of June. Since it's moving season in the army, the movers can get kind of backed up, so we decided that by the time the movers could get our things, we should really wait and have them move it all to our new house (rather than move everything twice in one month).
So that's that (for now). We've been up here almost 3 weeks and it will be another month of living like this. But that's ok. We're together and that's what is most important. ♥
