One more week

Only one more week to go and I will pick up my kids from their dad's. Jippie.
I just talked to a dear friend of mine, Anne-Marie on the phone. They are in South Korea. She is doing good, but - Heck - I miss them. I wished they could have stayed. We always enjoyed visiting with them, going for walks and drinking coffee, eating cake. There are many friendships throughout a lifetime, but not everyone makes a difference in your life. I had and still have wonderful friendships that I can reflect upon. God sends us friends for different reasons, some stay for a lifetime, some only for a little while, for a season. But each friendship gives us something special. Anne-Marie is one of them special ones. I hated to see her go. This is one thing that I dislike about being in the Military, leaving friends behind.

We still don't know where we will PCS next. All I know is that God is in control, and this gives me peace and comfort.
Leeanna is having a hard time moving away this time. She found wonderful friends here. Tommy doesn't say much. He will when the time of leaving comes closer. Well, I don't like it myself, but better moving than being separated from my husband for another year. Iraq was hard enough.
Now it is time for bed, dreaming about my children being home again.

New pictures

" I am now 9 month old, yeah."
"I like my horsey, am I now a cowboy?"
" Tommy is my brother and my best friend."
3 of my most favorite people in the whole wide world. Our visit in Iowa.
On our way to Iowa.
Here are a few new pics. We had a good Sunday. Junior church went great. by the way, yesterday, August the 8th was our fifth anniversary. We had 5 great years. I am excited about the next 50.
Tomorrow is a townhall meeting that I will attend. A representative of our Missouri Senator will be there to answer questions and concerns. Wow, she will hear quiet a few about the Obama Healthcare bill. It will be very interesting!

OK, we took Leeanna and Tommy to see their dad for 3 weeks. I miss them already. Other than that there is not much going on. I am slowly getting used to my new haircolor. Tommy can't wait for it to grow out and my blonde to show back up again. He likes me blonde.
Tomorrow I am starting to teach the 5-7 year olds in Junior church for the next 4 weeks. Jason will be my helper. It will be good to work together like we did in our "old" church in Oklahoma.

Another beautiful day

We had a good day, Timothy is feeling better. A little fever this morning, but no signs of headinjuries. Praise God. I know He protected my little sweetheart.
We started school about 3 weeks ago. Tommy and Leeanna are doing great. I am so proud of all 3. Tommy has matured quite a bit. Timothy knows his first sign language, shaking his head for Nein, Nein, which is german for No, No. And he can clap his hands to Patty Cake. And is sooo proud of himself. I am very blessed with a great family, loving, caring and God-oriented. Makes me wonder, why so many women try to find fulfillment outside the home. I have learned that it is mainly our part to make our house a home, a safe haven.
Well, that is all for today. Time to hit the bed...

Sunday- accident

Not a good day, we had an accident that shook us up. Timothy fell out of Jason's pick-up today after church. His head is pretty scratched up, but he seemed to be alright. Then just before I was ready to leave for church (Jason was supposed to stay home with him tonight, for I had nursery duty) he started to run a low temperature. Because he was fussy and wanted me we changed plans. Now I am here, hoping his temp. won't rise, which would mean another trip to the ER. I pray that it will be ok. God is good. I trust in Him.
