our new life

Today we waved goodbye to Mamaw and Papaw as they headed home to Cincinnati.

We are still getting used to this militarty life, it's not easy. My poor kiddos (and myself) cried our eyes out for awhile and then I finally pullled myself together and reassured them that it would get easier.

They didn't really care to hear it though. They just wanted their grandparents to come back and keep them company.

The boys had been hanging out with Papaw playing ball (Connor got a new bat and glove as an early birthday present), swimming in the pool Wesley and Ben bought for everyone with money from Grandma King, and just kind of getting in the way as Papaw did some odds and ends jobs that Daddy hadn't gotten around to yet.

The girls had been painting their hearts out refinishing their bedroom furniture in very pretty purple and green Tinkerbell colors and learning to sew from Mamaw. Kylie made bathroom curtains for mine and Brian's bathroom and sewed bead-fringed tie backs on the curtains in her and Korinne's room.

We are all better now...our hearts are mending and we are settling down for the night, I thank God for putting such special people like Mamaw and Papaw in my children's life.
