A couple of weeks ago, Harrison applied to work with UNLV's ROTC program in Las Vegas. He was eligible to work with any ROTC after he received his military orders (which we did the end of September). So he can work as a Gold Bar recruiter for a university for four months before we leave for Georgia, which is now through February. BYU's ROTC wasn't accepting any more Gold Bar recruiting positions, so we checked with UNLV since we have family there. The request officially went to the Army on Monday, and Wednesday morning we found out he got the position, and we are to report to Las Vegas on October 18th. That's MONDAY. THIS MONDAY. So we are packing up our apartment. Our beautiful new apartment that we only enjoyed for about 6 weeks, and moving down to Vegas Sunday after church.
See? So pretty :)
This is very bittersweet for us. This new job is a wonderful blessing, and one we have been praying for. It will give us all the benefits of being in the army; good salary, health insurance, and it will start Harrison's "clock" in the military as well. We are so excited to be close to family before we move to the other side of the country, but of course so heartbroken to leave our friends and life here. We will live with Harrison's parents for about 3 months before we pack up again (this time on the Army's dime :) ) and head to Columbus, GA.
Life is never dull around here.
