Happy Birthday Dad!!

Today is my dad's birthday!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
I was talking with my husband today and he asked me to blog about a bittersweet memory that he doesn't want to forget. Before we moved the be where he is (and where we are now) the girls asked a LOT of questions about their daddy. Where is he? What is he doing? You can probably guess the whole line of questions that went along with that. It was exhausting! Then one day I tell them, "Girls, in the morning we are going to see your daddy!" The oldest said, "you mean, we still have a daddy?" She is 4. This was not said to tug at my heartstrings or make me cry or get her a treat. It was said because she had not seen her daddy in a month and really thought maybe he was gone. As sad as the moment was we want to remember. We want to remember this journey in the army and we want to look back at these blogs someday and see how far we have come.
