Family Time

Let me say...we've had an awesome past 2 weeks with Q being home! Sadly, he only has 2 more days and then he'll go back to the "sandbox." He keeps reminding me that means we only have around 2 months till this deployment is over!! Woo Hoo!! Anyway, we've spent some much needed quality time as a family...we've gone on vacation in Branson, went to church together, prayed together, visited family and friends, and ate...a bunch...lol. It's not been without it's awkward moments and feelings, but all in all, it's been a great visit. I love having him home and cuddling with him at night. Oddly, even his snoring is comforting...lol....lets me know he's there. Just wanted to give a quick update and let you guys know that we're still around...just soaking up each other for the next few days until as Q would say..."our LAST goodbye."

My dear friends,
Its really great to hear that you all have been able to enjoy some family time and make some new memories.
I know this has been a tough deployment for all, but it especially hits home when its friends and family that are directly affected.
We also refrained from calling because we just didnt want to impose on anytime you might have together. But know that our hearts, our hopes,and prayers go with you both. Look at it this way. There are way fewer days ahead than there are behind. The next couple of months or so should and God willing, will be, a bit more bearable.
Q - be safe as possible , take care of yourself, and come home to all of us friends and family alike ,safe and sound.

We are here for you guys always.
Love Ya! God Bless!
