I feel like I have been moving at warped speed lately. With finishing 5 classes and immediately starting 5 more is can get overwhelming but I would rather be done sooner than drag it out.
Things are still pretty good around here, Kyle is finally back to a normal work schedule. However, when he doesn't have a rotation here his schedule is pretty relaxed which isn't a bad thing. We attended our first Hail and Farewell on Tuesday and it was great. Everyone is really nice and welcoming, since this is not a traditional setting like most military units it is a smaller group. I believe Kyle said there are only 46 people in his Task Force.
A few kinks have come up but nothing terrible. He isn't able to run our half marathon next weekend because he will be working. I've done it before so I'll be just fine. Since he is the newest person in the task force he will be the OIC while everyone is on block leave for Christmas which means no traveling for the holidays. It could certainly be worse, I am just thankful that he loves his job.
This weekend we have a full plate. Tomorrow is the Christmas Tree lighting on post and then off to the Deridder light show. Saturday we are heading to Natchitoches for the Christmas Festival, I have been waiting for this since we found out we were moving to Polk haha.
There will be good food, different types of craft vendors and amazing lights and fireworks.
Overall, I have to say that Polk is pretty amazing. The area, the people and the post have by far exceeded our expectations. Don't let anyone scare you about this place, it really is awesome.
Hope you all have a great Thursday!
