Nickle Ride

For those of you who don't know.... The Army is full of old traditions. The Nickle Ride is on of those traditions. In flight school it is a tradition that the first day you fly the helicopter you pay your pilot instructor a nicle from the year you were born. Well...Clint had his Nickle Ride this past week. I was so excited to hear how it went, and then he got home and he was all bummed cause he said he did'nt fly that well. All I could think is "you're not supposed to be able to fly well. It was your first day" But then I reminded myself that Clint is a perfectionsist. (One of the many things I love)I was so happy to hear that on day 2 he was more than happy with the way he flew. So here he is finally flying helicopters. AMAZING!!!!!!!
Congrats on your Nickle Ride Clint

Fall Festival

One of the things that I love about living on post is all the activities that are provided. It seems like there is always something fun going on. A few weekends ago there was a fall festival on post. The festival fields are so close to our house we just walk on over every time there is anything going on. The Fall festival was extra fun because there was lots and lots of Chili to eat. There was chili with pasole or chili with peanuts, or just basic chili. Something for everyone. They served it in small servings so you could try lots of different kinds. Yummy!!!!!!!

They always park the helicopters on the field and let everyone check them out.It's so cool to see these amazing machines. And to think Clint will be flying one soon.

We met up with some of our friends. Brandon Jack and Natani Atsity

And as always....Ruby had a blast. She loves playing with all of Clints flight buddies. What a fun life.

This is how we spent the first day of November

It was our last chance to go to the beach before Clint started flight school. As of today he is a flight student. We are so excited.
