Hi Everyone- My husband is in the Navy and is getting ready to submit orders for Hawaii for early next year. We have two boys, who will be 4 1/2 and 1 1/2 by the time we relocate. We also have a small (10 lb) dog. I stay at home with the boys and am not looking for work outside the home. I have tried to research moving, housing, and what it is like to live in Hawaii but am having trouble finding any helpful info especially from the perspective of a military wife. If any of you are currently stationed or have been stationed in Hawaii could you please fill me in or point me in a good direction to get me started. I need the details of what it will really be like not the "navy" version. I am excited to go and try something new but am worried because we have lived in Norfolk the last two rotations. My husband and I discussed it and decided we needed something new. Apparently, I have some control issues ; ) I need to know what I am getting our family into. Side note: I read this over and I sound a little pessimistic. I am actually really excited about the prospect of being in Hawaii but just need more info :) Thanks for any help you can give me. It is soo appreciated!!
