The Long Good Bye...

Now that the cute guy is safe in country. I thought I would give you a view of our life. You usually get to see the good, here is the ugly. I am married to a soldier and this is our life.

Two weeks ago...
He dropped of his gear...Many were joining him. The picture is blurry because we were driving and I was sad.

After the drop off we joined him inside with a ton of other families for family time...
He made calls to find his guys...


We tried to enjoy our last few hours with him.


We watched people arrive, cry, and laugh
For some this was their first time, but for many it was not.


Then we said our good bye until he returns home.

This is our life, he is my solider, they are my joy.
