With Emotions!


These are some things that I am feeling right now about our move but more importantly these are some things that my fellow Baron Spouses are feeling.

As our Barons deploy please keep them in your prayers and their spouses as well.  For us we are moving on to a new job, new place, new school, and a whole new life again but here they are moving to a new temporary life.  Its a HARD walk that many families have ahead of them and our prayers go out.

My prayer is...
for marriage to be strengthened in the distance.
for kids to adjust quickly.
for those who will be feeling lonely to be comforted.
for the safety of our guys and their families.
for their missions both abroad and on the homefront.

May God Bless the Bomber Barons!
Fly, Fight, Win!!!

Fini Flight (Warning: LOTS of Pictures)

The pictures are in...

Joe's Fini Flight from the 23d Bomb Squadron.

Mommy and Me #13 but only #10 for me.

This week I was able to get the whole family involved in Mommy and Me!

In the midst of all the craziness around here we decided to light the fire pit and have pizza pockets and s'mores for dinner.  I means who doesn't do that in the middle of packing?
  And the aftermath of eating the s'mores...

You may notice that we will be MIA (missing in action) for the next few weeks.  Sorry but we have 21 days till we roll out and 11 days until our movers come!  Its getting really close and we are really excited :D and maybe a bit stressed too!

But here is a little update...
First, Joe had his Fini (last) Flight on Friday.  That was very exciting!  We got to go and watch his plane land from the flightline.  Then we were able to "soak" him down with FREEZING cold water and Sparkling Cider.  Pictures will be posted as soon as I get them back.  And here is a special THANK YOU for our photographer Liz, who came with us to capture this special moment.

Second, we awaiting word on a house that we are buying in Florida.  Please join us in prayer that this transaction will be completed quickly as we do not want to live in temporary housing for too long.
Third, we seem to finally have everyone well in our house.  Please join us in prayer that everyone stays well as the next few weeks are going to be a little on the crazy side.

Fourth, we have a couple of farewells this week and next week.  Tomorrow night will be my last social with the WONDERFUL ladies of the 23d Bomb Squadron, by far the best bomb squadron in the Air Force!!!  I am looking forward to this, I know its going to be a good time!

Mustard Seeds

The Miracle of a Mustard Seed

Matthew 17.20

Jesus said, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move.  Nothing will be impossible for you."

Thanks for the reminder Grandpa Robert and Grandma Nancy.  This bookmark is hanging on our fridge and will act as a daily reminder.

Josiah woke me up this morning saying...

I guess summer isn't coming!
Only 24 more days here!!! 

Wednesday, May 5, 2010


Well today is wrapping up day 12 that we have been dealing with sick kids.  And HELPLESS is just how I feel!

I can't do anything to take this away from Josiah nor is anything I am doing seeming to help.  Yesterday after spending most of the day at the Dr with him while he received 600mL of fluids and was pumped with sugar, we thought it was behind us.  Until around lunchtime today...when it all started again.
So please join us in praying that he will begin to take fluids and keep them down.  I really don't want to go back tomorrow or Friday with him for more fluids.
