Hello all you in blogger land! I don't have my camera with me so no new pictures to post! I thought maybe I would just chat about what is going on in my life at the moment. Maybe if I get it out of my head and onto "paper" I will feel better, ya' think????
Carrie left on her Senior Trip to DC early Wednesday morning. She was so excited about going and very anxious to get on the way. She had called Austin the evening before to make sure she knew what time they were supposed to meet and he told her at 4am when it was really 5! He is sooooooooo in trouble when he gets back!!! That was his idea of a small senior prank!! Anyway, they are on the way and I am so happy for her! She was so excited that we got her camera fixed and returned to us in time for her to take it along! It's hard to believe that I am getting ready to have my second child out of high school but life stops for no one!! We are very proud of Carrie and all that she has accomplished!
Ashley has had sort of a rough time with the empty house. She doesn't like anything to change so this is major for her. I know that Carrie isn't gone for good but this is the next step in things changing around our house and Ashley isn't too thrilled with that prospect! She has much going on in her life with the end of the school year also. Yesterday, Dave tried to teach her how to drive the truck! Now THAT was a trip!! I think according to both of them that it did NOT go well!!!
David is doing well in his training and to be honest, I miss that little burger pretty bad some days! I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of him but the worry is more than I can handle some times! It is sooooo nice that we can pretty much talk to him when we want. He is supposed to be getting the Internet hooked up in his room today I think and so he is excited about that! I think he is really looking forward to being able to see our services on the Internet and will at least get to watch the graduation since he can't be here. It looks like he will be headed to Iraq in September for 6 to 7 months. We have had many conversations about this but it still is nothing I want to dwell on for long. Sometimes when I look at it, he has been gone for 9 months already and that has gone by pretty fast, then I think maybe it won't be too horrible. But the fact remains, I don't like it one little bit!! How's that for honesty?? Our family (including Christa) will need some extra prayers during that time!!
Dave is so busy with things at work but that is the norm. He still has some travelling coming up but we just roll with the flow! I could NOT make it without him helping me. He cooks as much as I do and does as much if not more laundry than I do!! God has truly blessed me with a WONDERFUL husband!!
Well, I guess I have rambled enough! You all have a fantastic day!!!
