Steven deployed today. It was really hard. I cried all the way home. We've been telling James that daddy's going away to work in Afghanistan for a really long time, but not sure how much he's understanding that. So to help, we made a paper chain with a ring for each day Steven will be gone, each month a different color. Hopefully that will help give a visual tool to help him understand.
We have a big year coming up and we're just praying these next nine months race by. We'll be heading to Indiana for Christmas, coming back to GA for a month, then going back to IN to have our baby. Steven won't be able to come back for the birth, so James and I are going to go be surrounded with the amazing love and support of our family.
