Wow, it has been a while since I have blogged. So much for that resolution. I think I missed the month of March all together. Maybe February too! The past couple of weeks have been crazy. I knew it would. I planned it to be. The crazier my weeks are, the faster time goes. The faster time flys, the sooner he will be home.
Today he is coming home on leave. Right now he is probably (hopefully) sleeping somewhere over the Pacific. It is a horribly long journey, 20 hours of travel time, including layovers in different countries. It will be worth it for him, it has been a long 7 months. On one hand it is hard to believe it has already been 7 months, but on the other hand, it seems like it has been forever!
It will be good for him to be here for the kids especially. We do not have huge plans, but it is the little things. He will be here for the last soccer game of the season, the High School Band banquet, the girls choir concert, probably the intermediate school band concert. Oh, and the beginning of Driver's Ed! He will still miss things, like Brigid's Olympics, Aidan's band concert, Mackenzie's pizza party that she won. Oh well, we do what we can, and the kids understand that.
When Scott goes back he will have 4 months left. It still seems like a long time, but I know that the kids will be busy this summer being kids, and Aidan is supposed to be a camp counselor for June and July. August will start marching band, and the kids will be getting ready to go back to school. September will bring his out-processing, and he will be home.
We are past the hump now. He can do it, and so can we!!! :)
