We haven't done a deployment in YEARS. The last time we did a small deployment and the boys' were 3 & 5. They are now 7& 9 and are very aware of what's going on. We took daddy to the boat last night and there were tears. This is a 'long' deployment for us....9 months. I know we will be fine, we've got GOD on our side. We are getting stronger and growing in our Faith, which has helped us tremendously in life. I'm very thankful for my husband, my children, and the life we have. Below are some pictures.
