In my last post I left out some of our family news.
In just a few short months I am going to become a great grandma again. My daughter is soon to welcome her first grandson. As a matter of fact, he will be the first grandchild on both sides of his family! Do I hear spoiled? I think it is wonderful.
Other news isn't so welcome to me. Garret will be leaving for Iraq on February 27th. We thought that he was going to be stationed one place for his entire tour of duty over there, but he informed us today that that place will be his main place, but he will be flying around to different camps to do his job. Makes me wish even more that I could refuse to sign his permission slip for the trip, and that would keep him from going. Even if that were possible I don't suppose it would work. He wants to go, so he would probably fake my signature.
We were looking forward to him coming home for a few days before shipping out, but he wasn't able to manage it. Kalee has had some health concerns, so naturally he needed to be there with her. I don't resent this; that is where he should be, with his wife. I don't know if that was the only reason he couldn't get back, but we will just keep him in our prayers until we see him upon his return. He will be able to keep in contact with us while he is gone, so that is a good thing.
I think this brings me more up to date. I really will try to do better.
