Bye Bye Daddy

Well we experienced our saddest day to date. We had to once again say goodbye to Elmer after only 2 weeks together. I think this time was harder than the first. It was so sad. After Elmer left we have had car trouble and just trouble adjusting to being alone again. It is hard being a single parent. I am in charge of everything and it is tough. Elmer made it safely back to his base and we are keeping in touch via the webcam but it isn't as good as having Daddy with us here so we can give him hugs and kisses. He left May 19th so this post is old news. I just want to thank all of you for your prayers and good thoughts. Soon we will all be back under one roof and this will be something we can look back on and laugh...one day.

Dodie, you are such an example to me! You are so strong, I have a hard time being on my own for just a couple of days when Todd works all weekend. I am so glad you could have some time with Elmer and I hope the time flies by so you can be with him again!
Thank you for all of your comments and your emails. I need to call you and talk, I've been so tired lately:)

Gee, why are you so tired? I remember what it was like not to get much sleep. Eric has suddenly decided that sleeping through the night is highly overrated so I am up most of the night too. Though not to your extent :) We love you and can't wait so see more pictures.

Hi Dodie! I am so glad you found our blog. Now we can really keep in touch. I am so sorry to her that Elmer had to leave you again. I remember being there for you the first time. Wish I could have been there for you again. But continue being that strong woman you are. I am glad to hear you heading back to the States soon:) But we will miss eachother...we just got our call to KOREA! We will be leaving in Jan 2010. Miss you!
