Hello to everyone!
It's been awhile since we've updated our blog and lots has happened since! Tyler graduated from SERE school and came back hungry and 10 lbs lighter. After a few days off he was back into class. He started Aeromedical training (medical factors affecting aviation) and then started his helicopter systems classes, learning all about the training helicopter's various systems and how they work. He had his first flight on Friday and had a blast, but realizes that flying helicopters is extremely tough. Tyler was on morning flight line last week so he had to be at the bus stop at about 4:15 AM to catch the bus to the airfield and got out of his academic classes at about 4:00 P.M. This week he will be on afternoons so will go to academics in the morning, then to the flightline in the afternoon, and get home at about 6:00 P.M. He has been studying lots and has done well on his tests so far. Shanonn has been staying busy working and taking care of the house. We took a trip to Atlanta for Labor day and got to see the World of Coke and went on the Inside the Studios Tour at the CNN studio. We also got to make a trip to Ikea and purchased a new bed frame. This past weekend we had dinner with a fellow flight student who is in Tyler's Guard unit and lives right down the street. Saturday we spent most of the day putting in a fence for Kahlua, so now she has room to roam and we can leave her outside for the day when we travel. The weather has been cooling off and we are looking forward to the fall weather fully setting in. We have stayed busy with all the new friends we have made here but miss all of our friends back in Oklahoma. Well, this was kind of a brief update but hopefully a longer one will soon follow!
