Ok, it is really annoying. The first few times when I look at my blog the pictures appear, but then when I come back they're gone. I'll show YOU blogger, I'll just make a slideshow. So there. I wonder if it has anything to do with my web albums being full? Probably. I'll have to take care of that, in my spare time of course. What spare time? I am not sure;)

So, Zach wasn't supposed to leave until tomorrow for Tyndall AFB in Florida. I thought he was crazy only giving himself 2 traveling days. Thankfully (in a way) he left today. He is crazy to drive that long distance by himself! He thinks flying is dangerous. I've tried to explain how you're more likely to get in a car accident than die in a plane crash (but I love flying)! Anyway, we'll see what he thinks of driving 20 hours alone! It's really weird, a few weeks ago when he left for a week I really was glad that he left. We just were kinda cranky with each other at that point and it was a nice little break. I think God must really be working (He's ALWAYS working, of course, but I think I'm more open to His work and can see it). I cried when he left today. He hasn't been away from us for such a length of time in almost 7 years (when Junior Squirrel was a baby)! We are so blessed that he's never been deployed or anything! But still, the separation isn't easy. I just hope that I have patience for the children and that they're obedient. Please pray for safe travels for Zach.

Sweet Pea has been napping for like 2 hours! She's never slept that long for a nap! She must be one tired baby! It helps that the other kids have been outside playing so they're not fighting and making ruckus! I love this spring weather! I wish the rain would stay away, but this weekend its supposed to appear. Great. Just in time for the weekend.

SO what did Zach have to go to Tyndall for? That is a very long time to drive, especially by himself. Oh I forgot to ask you, did he find out if he ever made Master? I always loved when Jalynn took long naps, I could get so much done and have time to myself. Well hang in there, six weeks is a long time, but I'm sure you'll be just fine.

I keep forgetting to answer your questions Kim! He went to NCO Academy (finally). He finds out in May regarding Master. And we leave for Michigan June 8.

I hate flying! Makes me sick to my tummy!

I will be glad when Baby Boy starts taking one nap in the middle of the day. He cat naps and then wakes up about the time I start to do something:)

I HATE the seperation part of military life. But we are so close to retirement and I can't wait....
