In Texas, Again!

6 Jan
Thomas left for Big Sandy, Texas this morning to complete his second phase of Alert training. We so enjoyed having him home with us for these past weeks especially for the holidays but we knew our time was limited and he would be off again before we’d know it!
Our family left the house around 6:30 am and headed to the Philly airport. Thomas was excited and we were all a little tired, to say the least!
His ERT training will last for a total of three months bringing him home once again in late March. Thomas, along with his squad mates, will complete their courses in Advanced Open Water Diving, Search-And-Rescue, Basic Fire Fighting, High-Angle Rescue, Counseling, Open Water Diving, Special Response Diver, and others.
Thomas called us late in the afternoon to let us know that he arrived safe and sound. We were thankful. He also explained that he, along with three other friends, were able to fly first-class: they were thrilled and we were impressed!
He will be sorely missed but we are praising the Lord that he is able to experience this training that will prepare him for his future.

Making sure the flight is on time!

Father and Son

    What I am wondering is how can you look so good at 6:30 in the morning? I saw the pictures on FB and you look beautiful! I practially wear my pajamas when I have to go to the airport for thoes early flights! 🙂 Anyway, I’m sure you will miss him 😦 He must be excited to be getting this awesome training!

    I’ll be praying for Thomas, and that you all don’t miss him too very much! 😉
