It is such a treat to have Jamie, Kaylee and Blake here from DeRidder Louisiana. One of the many perks of having them here visiting is that we get to talk to Ben a lot more. He calls and emails Jamie whenever he can. Sometimes it's daily and other times quick emails have to hold her. There is a 12.5 hour time difference between us and Afghanistan. Ben will be home in October. It's been a L-O-N-G year for all of them. Jamie is our hero as much as Ben is!
We have a fun 2 weeks planned, that include Disneyland, The Blueberry Farm, Movies, Girls day out at Glen Ivy, The 4th of July, The Beach, A visit with Josh & Krista and more! So it will be a glorious time for one and all.
It is especially nice to live 2 doors down from Melissa & Greg so the cousins can play and the Mom's can visit and catch up. One of my favorite things is that my kids and their spouses all get along and truly enjoy being together. Another one of my favorite things is watching the darling cousins together. The. best. ever.
