We finally made our way to the end. This past month has been a breath of fresh air after the long and lonely winter we've had. We've been outside, we've played a lot, and we've been happy. With the end in sight, everything else just seemed more bearable.
With a month left to go, we celebrated by going to Walmart to pick out our favorite candy and make countdown jars. The jars have been great. The kids really seem to grasp that Daddy is coming home when the eggs (their candy of choice) is gone. Thankfully the departure plan has stayed on track and i haven't had to adjust the number of eggs! Holden would have totally noticed and been bothered by it :)
So yeah, if all goes as planned i'll be picking up my hubby tomorrow night, midnightish. It won't be the big homecomings you have seen in past pictures...just a few soldiers coming home, being picked up at their office. No matter how it happens though, the excitement is the same. I can hardly wait to have my family back together. Check back soon for pics!
