We then received orders. After two short years in Alaska, we were moving to Kokomo, Indiana. We finished up the things we wanted to do in Alaska and began to look forward to our cross-country trip to the heartland.
We finished our dining room table.
We went fishing. Anna fell in the frigid lake.
We saw more moose and bear. And we took a final trip down to Seward. For Mother’s Day, we went out on the water for a Kenai Fjords whale watching tour. Kris took some wonderful pictures of whales and sea lions.
The kids and I mostly hung out on the boat.
We stayed at the military resort again. We took a final few minutes at Portage Glacier.
But we had packing to do. We made it back to Anchorage. And we started getting ready.
We went to church and office goodbye parties. And we packed.
We spent a few nights at the Anchorage Residence Inn as I finished up outprocessing the base. And just like that, we were ready to go to Kokomo.
