Well, we sure have been busy! Last weekend my mother-in-law was in town, and this past weekend my brother and his wife came to visit. We had SUCH a good time showing them around!

My brother and sister-in-law had never been here, so we tried to cram everything we could into the too short weekend. He even helped the Mr. move our guest bed into the new guest/office, so now we officially have a nursery! Exciting!

I just love my brother so much! I lost it this morning when he left. I mentioned on this blog a few months ago that he decided to join the Marines. Well... the time has come. He leaves for bootcamp in 10 short days. He lives in my hometown - about 8 hours away. Bootcamp lasts about 13 weeks, then he goes to combat training, then to school (in California! We are on the East coast - so a LONG way away!) and then... they can put him anywhere.

Once he left this morning, I have absolutely no idea when I'll see him again. :( Since I am due in September I won't be able to travel home for his bootcamp graduation (end of August). And after that, I don't even know where he'll be. I PRAY that it isn't overseas!!

Don't get me wrong - I am very VERY proud of him. He is excited about this. But I already miss him terribly. I am just really sad today.

  1. What a brave and selfless thing for your brother to chose to do! He will constantly be on my prayer list. :)
