3 Months?

Can it really be that long since I wrote here last? Sheesh! We're still without a computer here so this process can be slow going. Lots has happened here.

Val and Matt announced last month that she's pregnant and due at the end of October. Matt insisted it was twins until the sono proved him wrong.

AJ graduated from bootcamp March 22nd and headed to South Carolina for Nuke school. When he arrived they said he could get married. So on the 28th...Liz, AJ's mom and I headed down there with my van loaded with their stuff. The county clerk's office was closed due to it being Good Friday but they met them outside the office building to sign the license

application. They also met them outside city hall on Saturday to perform their ceremony.

They granted AJ special liberty so he could spend his wedding night with his bride instead of in the barracks. On Sunday we went to see the USS Yorktown. It was fun watching everyone watch/interact with AJ and his brother in their uniforms (he's in the army stationed at Fort Bragg. He surprised AJ and joined us for the weekend).

AJ was the Navy's again Sunday night. Monday was jumping through hoops and red tape day so Liz could be an official military wife. Amazingly everything happened according to the timeline and the kids had their house on Tuesday. We unpacked the van, went grocery shopping, had dinner and then hit the road for home. AJ's mom and I both arrived home wearing sandals... IN A SNOWSTORM! Made me want to turn right back around and move in with Liz!

Last week I started my new baby sitting gig. I get to snuggle and cudle with Mr Gabe on Fridays ( and various other days as needed) while Pat and Alex work.

Luke started a full time job this week. He's working construction with Matt. He's already worked a ton of hours (15 yesterday alone). Poor kid is sore and tired. Bye bye soft and smooth hands... hello man hands.

The kids have about 10 more weeks of school. Sean is doing better about going. Although he can be tempted to start balking as soon as the routine is messed with.

I know I say I'm going to be better about posting and then fall off the face of the earth for long stretches. But now I have to keep this updated for Liz and AJ's sake. So hopefully it truly happens this time.

Now to try and get control of this disaster area. But first a picture of Danielle just for Liz.

I've been thinking about you this week. Glad things are okay. You sure are busy, but with so many people around, it couldn't be anything else. Hope to hear more from you soon.
