Galveston, Texas

Josh got orders today for his next unit which will be on an 87 foot patrol boat out of Galveston, Texas. It was his 12th out of 30 picks, which is actually pretty good considering most of the guys that he knows that are transferring didn't get anything on their list and had to pick from the leftovers. When he told me about it this morning, I couldn't help but be dissappointed. It is a 13 hour drive from home (northeast Atlanta) and at least 10 hours from Destin (so no using my parents beach condo as much). But, it is the best pick for Josh's career. He will have more responsibility as well as have more opportunity for advancement and learning on the job. The more and more that I've thought about it, I'm actually really excited! We will be very close to Houston, and we're actually going to look for a house on the south-side of Houston, and it will be nice to be in a city again! I will be only about 3 hours away from one of my best friends from high school which will be nice too! All in all, God put us where He felt we were of the most need, and that this move is all part of His plan! I trust in Him and know that this will be a great new adventure for the Gentry family!

  1. I live an hour away from Galveston!!!! :) We live in Kingwood, which is a suburb of Houston. I think you'll love it here...there's TONS to do! We'll have to get our girls together (once mine is here!) I'm sorry it's not your first choice, but you have the right attitude! God has a plan for your sweet family!
