and this is what I woke up to. This is a tree in our front yard.
This is my oldest on his way to the bus stop with Daddy. See, my husband had the day off from work yesterday. We didn't want to tell my oldest in the morning because then he would want to stay home from school. Since we had so much trouble with him getting to school since we moved that another excuse for him to not want to go was not an option.
He is so brave and is doing so much better. He fought me a bit again this morning but he actually smiled when he was walking up the bus steps. He makes me so proud.
I am so glad that I was
given this spirit, entrusted with his spirit, to teach him and help him grow in the gospel and find his way back to our Heavenly Father.
He is growing up so fast and it makes me sad. Yet, next to the bus he looks so small and vulnerable. I pray that I will be able to help him in his growth both in the world and in the gospel.
This is why my husband had the day off yesterday. I got to attend what is called HeartLink here on the base. It was a great time of learning what is available to us as spouses not only on the base but in the community. What is expected of our husbands and what our role is as the spouse.
This is me getting ready to head up to the cockpit of a B-1B bomber.
How I have always wanted to have the opportunity to fly in a fighter jet. This is the closest I have been, even though the bomber is not a fighter jet. There is 2 seats, the other was to my right. The room that the pilots have to maneuver in is minuscule. I don't know how they do it. I was barely able to get my other leg into the correct position. But I had a blast seeing where my husband works and what he deals with on a daily basis.
