Thoughts of the day...

-I love watching Logan jump up and down saying "yay! Jesus help get bad guy!!!" when he sees Goliath, the giant pickle fall over.
-Yay, Logan can pull he own pants up
-Thinking about a new home here in NC, (will write more on that later)
-Tacos for dinner
-Wishing I lived close to a Costco
-I love baby smiles
-With after holiday M&M's only a dollar a bag on base, I eat way to many!
-Chocolate Milk for a snack
-Scott leaves again in four days
-I'm glad it's spring and there are birds searching for worms on the back grass to keep Logan entertained at random times during the day
-Please baby, go to sleep!

boys will be boys...

This has been a bitter sweet week, Today was the day we had been anticipating for a long time. Today the guys he'd been with over this whole course graduated and are moving on. We're only a months and half behind, but his not joining them has brought up the reason why and the memories that are behind it all; being home with family after Luke's death set Scott back into the next class. We're excited for our friends that are now finished, but are missing Luke terribly and wishing he was here to be celebrating with us.

I have not had much to be blogging about lately, but we are getting away this weekend to the outer Banks of North Carolina, so mabey that'll change things. I'm looking forward to having a small break from everyday living in our little town.

In the mean time, here's a short clip of my two boys. Those of you who know Scott well, know that he's always up for doing something to keep those muscles strong, so it's only fitting that his son would follow in his footsteps. Weather it's in the sand, at home, or at the gym, Logan is right there beside Scott mimicking his actions.

For the second year in a row Scott has been in the field for Easter. I wish that I could say that I was used to it, but that's not the case, every missed event or holiday is hard. But as I am coming to learn with being in the military, you have to make the most of every situation, especially with little kids. So with those thoughts I decided to attempt church by myself with a new baby and have Easter dinner at my house with a few friends :) It was a fun day, a bit on the crazy side, but fun.
Church was a success, after that we came home and the two munchkins took naps while I started the cooking. Our menu included a smithfield spiral cut glazed ham, roasted asparagus with melted Parmesan, scalloped potatoes, sparkling cider and red wine, and an apple crisp for desert.
With the air conditioner not working properly, high 80 degree weather, and an oven on for most of the day, my little place was cookin with heat. Despite that, the heat made for a very pleasant evening to sit outside and let Logan run off some energy.
I missed my husband like crazy, but it was a fun day and I am thankful for friends to hang out with and to help out with my sometimes hectic life.
