Easter, Swim Lessons, And A Fun Day Out

We’ve had a nice April so far. Scott made an impromptu trip to Maine to visit family. With the pending assignment, it’s way easier and cheaper for Scott to drive up there. He had such a great time 🙂

Damien’s on the A-B Honor Roll for 3rd Quarter! Woot!
Damien was quite spoiled this Easter. The basket on the right is a very thoughtful gift from his Aunt Danielle, complete with a joke book, a bath bomb, and some new clothes! And of course the traditional card and money from Great Grandma and Tom. Thanks!
Damien reading me some jokes lol
We got a late start on Easter this year so we didn’t dye eggs until Easter afternoon.
So sparkly!!!
Easter must have been exhausting because this is the first nap I’ve seen in YEARS.
Damien just finished his 6-session Level 2 swim lessons! He’s gained so much confidence.
He’s having so much fun 🙂
Since we haven’t been out and about for a while, we decided to hit up Dave and Busters in Virginia Beach today.

So many fun games!

After Dave and Busters, we went to check out the new Ikea that just opened in Norfolk. COMPLETE. CHAOS. lol It had it’s own dedicated parking garage and we ended up having to drive to the roof where there was only a couple of spots left to park. You can only imagine how many people were inside shopping. Overall it was a good time. Sometimes you just need a day out of the house.

Entering into Spring with an Assignment

Since my last post, we’ve received some exciting news. I have an assignment to Grand Forks AFB! My supervisor made a few phone calls and spoke with the right people and it happened very quickly. I need to report by the end of August. I already have all the paperwork submitted and now is the long process of getting everything signed and approved so I can get my orders. I need orders for anything important like scheduling my household goods shipment. In the meantime it’s hard to contain our excitement. We’re looking at houses and researching the area. So much to do!

Aside from the assignment, there’s nothing significant to report. Work feels busier than ever preparing for an inspection and we’ve pretty much just been staying home this winter.

Damien spent his Valentine’s Day money from Great Grandma and Tom on another treasure dig thing.
This time he found some sort of sea captain. Damien added the Roblox character’s head for the pic.

Damien wanted to help make dinner! He’s very carefully cutting up green onion for me.

Damien’s Spring Concert. It was uneventful. Damien didn’t even really sing.
Last week, Damien lost another tooth!
Katrina seems like to Damien’s tunnel 🙂
