The day before M actually left we spent most of the day together packing his stuff and just having fun. It seemed to fly by far too quickly. At about 6 pm we set out for the hotel where he would stay the night before processing and swearing in at MEPS the next day. The hotel is about an hour and half away from our new place and he had to be checked in by 8 pm. We made it at exactly 8. You see M is a great driver as long as he isn't distracted. I was trying to find out how to get to MEPS for the program the next morning so of course with me asking questions he got a little confused as to where we were really going. We ended up driving to MEPS not the hotel so, we had to back track to find where we actually needed to be. Then of course since we live in Utah it happens to be construction season. Which, only delayed us a little longer in getting to the hotel. But against all odds we arrived right on time at M's check in location. After dropping M off the boys and I proceeded to find our way home. M called that night and we talked for a bit then it was time to get some sleep and prepare for the next day.
