I left one very cool thing out last night! The kids have these to sleep on every night.
The USO was here a few weeks ago and had a kids readiness day. They offered LOTS of great tools for both parents and kids to use during a deployment. Josiah got a special "with you all the way" kit, it was full of interactive things to help him pass the time.
These pillow cases were offered there too. It was quite a surprise to both Joe and the kids. I emailed pictures and when we arrived there were 3 pillow cases waiting so they could all snuggle up together.
I really can't tell you how much the USO does for military and their families. Just the week before Joe left we were blessed enough to attend a USO concert at the base. Not only was free but it was CRAIG MORGAN!!!
We had a wonderful time! Most people don't know but our first date was to a concert, we love them. Concerts were hard to come by the last few years so I am really glad we got to enjoy one.
THANK YOU USO!!!
FOR THE CONCERT AND FOR A RELAXING PLACE FOR MY HERO WHEN HE TRAVELS!
For those of you unfamiliar with Craig Morgan here is one of my favorite songs.
I am a lover of Christ...a SAHM of 2 fabulous kiddos...and a devoted military wife. I have survived a couple of North Dakota winters. And now I am rejoicing to be back in the South! Thank you Lord for Southern Hospitality! I have created this blog for friends and family to enjoy our adventures from many miles away. The ride is rocky at times but we have faith!
