Our Next Assignment

Well what we've been waiting for since Joe deployed finally came in - our next assignment!

We've been wondering where we would be stationed next, and even though we won't be moving for another year, we've been anxiously waiting to find out just where we'll be living.

If you've seen my status on Facebook then you already know where the Air Force is sending us next...

but for those of you who haven't...

It's...

Charleston AFB, SC!

I think I'm excited about that :)

I don't really know much about the base; except I keep hearing it's a beautiful area (that's good to know!)

I did find the Down Syndrome Association, which is in Charleston, but other than that? I'm not familiar with it at all. One thing I'm worried about is how big it is - I'm not used to living in a big city! Maybe the base is on the outskirts and I won't have to venture downtown too often :)

So now the research can begin to find out more about our next home. Anyone out there have any experience?

How exciting! It must be nice to be able to look into the area in advance and give you all something to look forward to.

Mara said...

I think I know someone who was on that base- I will check and if so, pass on email addresses : )

nichole said...

My boss' daughter just bought a house in Charleston. She loves it there. My boss and his wife LOVE to visit there. They have nothing but rave reviews for it. It is on my list of places to visit. Being in NC its a somewhat short drive away, but I haven't made it there yet.

Shelley said...

It's a beautiful city!!!
I haven't been to the AF base, but I've been to the city a few times.
Glad you have lots of time to get familiar with the area.

McKenna said...

Sounds great!! :)

Stephanie said...

YAY for finding out where you'll be going, next. Sounds like you really are excited.

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

Weren't Rhett Butler's people from Charleston? That'd be good enough for me!

Killlashandra said...

Charleston, eh? There's certainly nothing wrong with the south. :) Great beaches too. I've only passed through while driving to GA growing up but I remember it being a pretty state. I didn't know you were in facebook. You must be using a different email address as I couldn't find you that way. Look me up when you have a chance.

Lovin Mama said...

Sounds nice! I'm a country girl, so I understand the apprehension about the "big city". :)

Melissa @ Banana Migraine said...

I'm glad you are excited! I've never been there, but imagine it's really beautiful!

Bailey's Leaf said...

Well, at least it is on the same coast that you are presently on! Weather is warmer. I hear that the food is good.

It'll be an adventure!

:)

Sue said...

Congrats on knowing where you'll be stationed. I know the waiting can be killer. It's good to know, then you can plan!

:)

Christina said...

I'm glad you are excited about!!

Jill said...

I love that you found out with so much time to plan for the move!!!

Congrats on Charleston - I've only been there once, but I loved it!

Katie said...

Hooray! I think that if you love history, the ocean, and great architecture, you will adore Charleston. We live about 5 hours away, and we can't stop coming back year after year to take in the sights and go to the beach! Folly Beach is very popular with surfers and teens, but I LOVE going to Hunting Island State Park with the kiddos. It is south of Charleston, near Beaufort, and it is beautiful, the waves are calm enough for small ones, the beaches are wide, the people are few, and the shells are many. Remember, Hunting Island!

Calico Sky said...

I was secretly hoping for England!

I keep meaning to tell you, the lovely card you send as a thank you for donating to Kayla's walk has inspired so many conversations in my home. Thank you!

Karen said...

When are you moving? We haven't arranged a get-together yet! Do I need to make plans?

Mel said...

You will love Charleston!! It is so pretty there!

The Munck Family said...

YAY! I love Charleston, my sister and her husband were based there for 3 years.

You will only be 5 1/2 hours from me...closer for us to meet oneday :) That's a great reason for a road trip to that area in a year or so.

Bonita said...

Charleston is beautiful, rich in history, and you have the ocean nearby. And I'm only a few hours away! I'm excited for you and hope I can meet you when you come closer!

Libby said...

Ohhh..congrats on your new assignment! I'm from North Carolina and have only visited SC in passing, but from what I did see of it, it's an absolutely beautiful state! You will love it there :)

much more than a mom said...

I've never been there but have seen lots of pics of the area and it looks gorgeous! How nice that you'll be in such a pretty, child friendly area!

Corey~living and loving said...

oh darn! I was hoping you'd say.....my state. but....my state doesn't have a base...so that was crazy. tee hee

Sandra said...

That's great Michelle....I don't know the area and we've never been stationed there. Can't wait to hear all about it though :)

joan said...

Charleston is one of my very favorite places. I think you will all be very happy there!

Jeanette said...

SC is beautiful. There is so much history in that area of the country. Besides, you are THAT much closer to DisneyWorld. That would be reason enough for me to move. LOL!

Kim said...

Charleston is beautiful! My brother lived at Folly Beach and we went for a visit to Charleston. We took the horse and buggy ride through the historical part of town. It is very nice. We will be neighboring states since we are in NC!

Joy said...

Very cool. I'm a tad jealous but I'll try to rein it in... :) We are supposed to be moving in 2 months and still do not have orders! Ugh!

The Girls' Mommy said...

I've never been but always wanted to! I hear its beautiful.

Dave and Rachel said...

We live in the upstate of SC in Greenville and love Charleston, in my opinion it is the second best city in SC:) I think the AFB is in the northern part of the city but I might be thinking of the navy base. the city is sort of large but is divided into little sections. You will find yoru way around.But get ready for the tourist there are a lot of them!! Maybe one of these days we can meet when we are on a visit to the area. I wish I knew more about the DS community there but am still just trying to figure out ours in the upsate. I am glad you know where you are moving and that it is near me:)!
