The Countdown Begins!

We got the official email, no more mail sent from us in Germany to Iraq after Sept 21!!! We're getting down to the nitty gritty people! If we were to mail something to them after the 21st there's a very good chance it will not get to our soldiers in time!!!! This is definately one of those exciting "don'ts" you get told! :)

We're down to single digit weeks! I have been going over all that I want and need to do in the next few weeks to prepare for Chad's homecoming! Tomorrow I'm going to the bookstore here on post and buying some WelcomeHome Balloons, before they're all sold out (then on the day of his arrival I can take them back up or to the flower shop and have them blown up). I need to get poster board and make posters. I'm going to make them for the doors in our building, as well as up our stairwell and for our front door! I am going to be ordering his Welcome Home Sign here in a few minutes!

We're not done yet, but we are getting closer!

Countdown time is the greatest - it's so much fun to go out and get the balloons, banners, posters etc - because it makes it real.  I'm glad Chad is coming home soon - I'll say an extra prayer that the next few weeks fly by.  By the way I'm right now about 15 minutes south of Ft. Belvoir - I love the base, my dad actually was the commander of Belvoir about 10 years ago.  Leene
