So Jake was finally sworn into the navy last friday. We started the process of applying for the program over a year ago and all our efforts finally paid off! We dressed Elle in a little sailor dress for the occasion. Jake's awesome parents drove down from Pocatello to be there and his grandparents were able to come as well. We all went out to dinner afterward and then his parents drove right back. It's so wonderful to have such supportive inlaws.
So Jake won't have to do anything for the military until he graduates. But he's classified as enlisted right now, so they are paying us. I feel so blessed. Because he is able to do this, I am able to stay home and care for our beautiful little girl. I know I will probably be cursing the military when I am separated from the man I love, but right now, I am so grateful.
