My husband came home from MEPS yesterday, he will be going to Ft Benning, GA. His leave date is Nov 02, he's going to miss Thanksgiving but he'll get a 2 week leave for Christmas I guess. We've told the kids and they are excited for now. Not sure how they'll do once we actually have to say good bye but we can only take it one day at a time. We've told our 3yo that Daddy is going to be leaving for school for awhile (16 weeks) and he seems to understand it that way.
I continue to pray that things will be positive for us. I plan on going to the Christian book store and getting him a small travel type Bible and hopefully he'll actually read it. He has fallen away from the church as we'd had a lot of church issues/problems over the last year and he just doesn't want to get hurt again I think. I asked him if he plans on attending church during basic and he said yeah probably so that is at least an answer that he is considering it right?!? ☺
Okay...well thanks for reading and hearing my update.
