Whats new with us.....

Aloha!!! Well, September sure did shoot by so fast and it's almost October already. So here's what we have all been up to lately:

Rob is back to work full force and already getting to utilize all the knowledge gained at AMMOS to good use....let's just hope it also helps get him that Major Promotion too....he is up for the promotion board this December.

Abi is enjoying her long therapeutic drives to and from work on the east side of the island and still manages to get the kids ready and to all their activities on most days while Rob is busy with work....what a supermom!!!

Isiboy is loving his new school and having fun hanging out with his friends. He did really well in a recent statewide evaluation and ranked at the top of his year group.

Esa is bubbly as ever and sharing the Aloha with her new classmates and teachers. She was recently inducted as a Girl Scout and is loving every minute of it....I can't wait for the cookie sell:)!

Ali'i is enjoying his Kindergarten class and loves doing his homework and bringing new books home from the Library for him and Dad to read.

Robbie is doing awesome at Daycare (pottie-trained and all!) and still has a difficult time when Mom and Dad drop him off in the morning but loves playing with all his new friends. He is talking a whole lot more and starting to get over his shyness.

That's all for now....we'll post more pictures and news later. Love you all!!!


AMMOS Graduation 14 Aug 2008

Well, time sure does fly by when you are busy! Already a month gone by since I got back home, so I figured I better post some updates on this blog to keep you all up-to-date with what's going on with us. A little over a month ago I graduated for the Air Force's Advance Maintenance and Munitions Officer School (AMMOS). 14 weeks of "good times" at Nellis Air Force Base. A very challenging school that I was happy to successful get through and get home to the family. Here are some of the pictures of the graduation (courtesy of Jake....thanks Bro!!!). I was grateful to have the family drive all the way from Utah to spend some time with us.
Abi and I looking all serious:)....gotta love the background with the sabers and all!

Just wanted to thank all my family for making the trip out to help celebrate with me! It was awesome having an extra cheering section:). Love you guys!
