I’m writing to you from not-so-sunny Denver. Seriously. It decided to be cold and kind of rainy here, though I’ve still managed to burn my nose in spite of that. It is so great to be back in the USofA.
B’s brothers both graduated quite nicely earlier this week. It was really funny/sweet. His brother’s Things One and Two were both graduating from USAFA and chose to commission together. So, they called “Cadet 1st Class Thing One commissioned by 2nd LT B, and then Cadet 1st Class Thing Two commissioned by 2nd LT B and the whole crowd of 500ish went nuts. They had no idea that they’d have three brothers, all USAFA grads, all AF in one ceremony. It was really awesome to be a part of. I couldn’t have been prouder than watching B give Things One and Two their Oath of Office.
The graduation ceremony was long. 40 squads of cadets, called up one at a time to salute and shake hands with two different people. But, USAFA has the idea right, they ended graduation with a Thunderbirds show. That was seriously one of the coolest things that I have ever seen.
We got into Denver yesterday. We’re one Rockies game and one pool party in to our great vacation. We’ve hit so many malls that it isn’t even funny. ;) Tomorrow is supposed to be a theme park or brewery (depending on weather), trampoline park, dinner, and Dave and Busters. There are no plans after this.
Tonight we’re celebrating my birthday early since we’ll be on a plane for all of it. But we’re also celebrating B getting promoted. He is now officially 1stLT B. I couldn’t be prouder. I’m going to duck out and get ready to go to dinner with my amazing husband.
I hope you are all doing well!
