Day: How about..we're half way through!

Ok, I've lost count of how many days Chad's been gone and honestly I'm just too lazy and far too tired right now to go count! I will try to do that tomorrow.

Chad called yesterday, hadn't talked to him since Mother's Day. I'm not sure if I shared or not, but he's not with the rest of his battalion, and he's extremely busy and going out A LOT, which of course limits our contact drastically. He's been through quite a bit, concerning IEDS and mortar rounds landing inside the base camp. He shared a HYSTERICAL story with me, but there's no way I'm going to write about it here, if he's willing to share it I'll let him! Even in Iraq funny things can happen! :)

The boys and I are doing well. Our oldest had his last tball game and he had fun, but said he was glad he was done! We had a half way through party tonight too with the battalion. They had a huge bounce house, trampoline, and a electric bull. They had tons and tons of food. The boys ate and had a lot of fun! It didn't take them long to fall asleep either!!

Our little guy got to talk to Daddy last night for the first time after being asleep the last 2 times he called. He was so excited to talk to his Daddy. He missed him a lot. When you ask him "where's Daddy" he'll say "Iraq" but of course it sounds more like "I" "ack" He's 2, can't expect perfect grammar!

Well, it's almost 2 am here in Germany, I need to get to sleep. I have a Mom's Day Out tomorrow. The boys will be at childcare from 10-6. It'll be a nice break. I plan on going to the gym, getting the laundry put away, and doing some scrapbooking. It'll be a nice hopefully quiet day.

God Bless and Thanks for supporting our family and other military families.
