Kevin's tour was three years, and come May, we will have been here three years. We are awaiting our call any day now from the assignment officer who will be telling us if Kevin will be working in Boston, staying here for one more year or moving back to the Washington, DC area. It's been a bit dreadful, I'll admit. We don't want to leave. We have amazing friends. We have family. We have everything. And now, we will most likely be leaving all of this. If Kevin gets transferred to Boston, the change will be exciting knowing we won't have to leave New England, be too far away from our friends and still be close to family. If Kevin gets transferred back to Washington DC, it will be sad. Even though we have some great friends in DC (some of Mairead's very first friends!), it will just be a huge transition for everyone to go back to living in a face paced and highly populated area.

It sucks. But, I do know we will make the best of whatever is given to us and know that it is only temporary. When Kevin retires from the Coast Guard, Mairead will only be 11.... 11......plenty of time to grow up in New England and enjoy, but it still makes me sad to think we have to go.
