I started the week with a graduation ceremony.  I now have a master's degree in Military Operational Art and Sciences.  Pretty cool! 

Jewels and beads were a major part of my life here in Alabama, but I also spent plenty of time reading about air power, warfare, culture, and history.  I can actually read the whole newspaper now and understand it...I don't have to stick with the tv listings and the sudoku.  haaaaaaaaaa  I read a ton about Afghan history and culture that has really helped me understand some of Curt's daily mission and the challenges he's facing.

There was a huge graduation ball on Saturday night, so here's a pic of some of my flight mates and their lovely spouses.  I was truly blessed to meet all these guys...even the fighter pilot!  haaaaaaaaaaaaa  I'm headed to Langley Air Force Base in Virginia while the others in my flight are headed off around the world:  Honolulu, Okinawa, Las Vegas, D.C., Louisiana, San Antonio, and Phoenix.  My international student buds are going back to Armenia and South Africa.  It seems like we'll be far apart, but it's amazing how small the world gets when you have a shared experience like we've had here. 

So, on that note, I have to get ready for the packers...they're already late, but should be here eventually today.  I'll have to write more about moving and how much fun it is later on when it's all done and I'm through with the fun.  haaaaaaaaaaa

Bead Air Power!!
