Polish Army Liberation Field Trip

Yes, the hat is just a bit big for me mom!

On Friday the two youngest girls and I went on a school field trip.  This field trip wasn’t just as simple as going to the local zoo or apple orchard.  This field trip we went to a Polish Army training base and learned out about how they train and what kind of equipment they use along with 700+ other kids.  This I would have to say this was IS the coolest field trip that I have been on in the 13 years I have had kids in school.

The local news station TVP-Bydgoszcz was there as well, doing a segment for the nightly news.  Yes, it is in Polish but a few seconds of it is in English because I  got interviewed and my Polish language skills is not up to a conversation level yet.  Click HERE to see the clip.

Below are just a FEW of the pictures that I took of the trip.

So what is the best field trip that you have gone on with your kids?

Well today is the day!

Jim and I.

22 years ago my husband decided to enlist in the United States Air Force.  But luckily at his very first military assignment to Minot, North Dakota, he met me and swept me off of my feet and we fell madly in love.  Well over the last 20 years that we have been married the  Air Force has been really good to us by sending us to Germany, Panama, The Netherlands, Florida, Illionis, and Nebraska.  But unfortunately every chapter must come to an end and as of today, this chapter of our lives is done.  My husband is offically retired from the United State Air Force after 22 years of service, on March 1st, 2012.  Most people when they retire from the military do a retirement ceremony.  We did one for Jim in November right before left to move here to Poland to start our next chapter of our lives.  So for all of those friends and family that are reading this, “THANK YOU,” for making the 22 years of Jim’s career a GREAT one!  And to my husband when he reads this, “I am so proud of you for the last 22 years of service that you did in the Air Force and I love you!”

 Here are few of the pictures of the day out of the 250 that were taken.

So what is one of the proudest moments you have of your spouse or loved one?
