I am pretty sure in my children's minds that there isn't a lot of positive things about Daddy being gone for almost nine months....because to them a week takes "forever". BUT I will say that they have found pure joy in surprise packages from Daddy. They love to drive up to the house and see those mystery boxes sitting at the front door. Today I tried to capture the excitement they had when they opened their most recent gifts. Daddy, no matter how far away you are, you are a part of us every single moment of every day. We are proud of what you do and who you are.....thank you for making us all feel so special!!
