Another Failure

Once again our plans failed. No, we didn't try to feed the ducks again. The base was having 'Child Pride Day' with a bunch of activities- bounce houses, face painting, games, etc. Well, we get there at 1 pm and there is nobody there. All of the tables are empty and they are already deflating the bounce houses. Our kids were looking forward all morning to bouncing in those things! The whole ordeal was supposed to last until 3!!! What a disappointment to our children! To us also. This isn't the first time that has happened to us with a base function here. Another time they had a car seat check and by the time I got there everybody was gone! And we got there before the designated 'close' time. Guess next time we'll have to go right away in the morning if we want any 'action'. Such disappointment. Hopefully this week whatever we plan will actually be carried through and give us fulfillment! But, we did get to see the Katrina Memorial that Ty Pennington and his crew came down to do. I thought it was neat, but Zach didn't care about it! Oh yeah, a friend and I recently started a couple of Yahoo groups for military wives. So, if you are a Christian military wife or know one, let me know if you are interested! And as Forrest Gump says, "That's all I have to say about that."

We've had to same things happen here. They weren't really functions like that, but businesses that we decided to try and then when we got there they were closed. Todd was just furious, every time. Shari
