Tomorrow, tomorrow Nick finds out what aircraft the Navy wants him to continue onward in training with. Tomorrow decides whether we stay where we are for another 8 months or whether we need to pack our entire house in 2 weeks. Tomorrow decides how the rest of my flyboy’s career will go. And it’s totally out of our hands. There is something so terrifying about that but also exciting. Almost like, “well it’s out of our hands and it is what it is,” that’s what we keep saying to ourselves anyway. The Navy Pilot pipeline is long but we are really only at the beginning, okay maybe 1/3 of the way through. Nick just completed Primary and will be selecting tomorrow. That is what they call it, even though you aren’t really the one selecting at all lol. And we have NO idea what will come of it, we’ve both had theories but ultimately, you just don’t know! I’ll be sure to write again once we know. But to all my fellow spouses in this position, tell me how prepared?? How you celebrated?? We are feeling #allthefeelings over here!!
This was the day Nick completed his first ever solo during the IFS phase of training, a civilian flight school.0
