Flashback Foto Friday

It's been quite a week out here.  We're coming off of a glorious 10 days with Pilot Pete home on vacation.  He headed back to work Monday, and things are slowly starting to return to normal.  Wednesday marked the first day of the last class he'll teach as an instructor out here.  Looking back at our pictures from the last three years, it's definitely bittersweet.  A lot of things have happened and changed, but we're excited to be embarking on a new phase of our lives in two months.

On a sad and sobering note, our Naval Aviation community lost two of its members in a tragic crash on Wednesday.  This is the very worst part of this life, and you never get used to it.  Please, take a moment today to remember these two outstanding officers whose loss is felt by many.  My wish is that their family and friends will find comfort in this most difficult time, and remember that their loss will never be forgotten, and will be honored always.

Here's our flashback foto - three years ago Wednesday, Pilot Pete set off for his first day of "class" at TOPGUN.  We had just moved into our rental (incidentally, we no longer live there) and Little Dude had just started rice cereal a few days earlier:

Look at my boys...time flies.
