We recently had a family discussion about the options available to Military Man as he is nearing the "could get orders at anytime" phase of this station. One option would be a bold move from active duty to reserve and contract civilian employment, and another would be an over-seas assignment again. It didn't surprise me that Buggy was the only child that wholeheartedly voted for the continuation of active-duty service and consistent moves around the world. She LOVES the mystery and excitement that accompanies PCSes. The good news is, we HAVE options - and that's a wonderful blessing.

A couple of years ago Eva came up with the "B.E.E.S." for our small group of friends, "Bonded Eternally, England Sisters." I took a trip with my "BEES" to New York last spring. It was an amazing and extraordinary experience. I know we won't be able to get together as often as we'd all like to - being miles, even oceans apart makes it quite impossible. I do know that wherever we go and whatever we do, we will always be there for one another. I am thankful for their love and support and friendships!

So anyone who knows us knows that April is our family's crazy-busy month. In just a few short days the happy chaos begins with a visit from Grandma Hall and a mini-homecoming for Military Man (he's been TDY "down south"). Then there's the Easter holiday and our 14 year wedding anniversary. My BFF is also coming for a stay, courtesy of her awesome husband who decided to surprise us both with airline tickets to come see me. Freckle Face turns 12 and will be moving on up into Young Women's. Monkey Boy will be turning 9 the week after that. They both want birthday parties this year (they didn't get to have parties last year). I haven't even started to think about how all of this is going to work out. In fact, I'm still focused on my lengthy "to-do" list for the next two days - how can I possibly think about planning the rest of the month?!!
Oh well, I'll get it figured out soon... always do. Happy Wednesday everyone, and an early Happy Easter as well, since I'm not sure when I'll get back to blogging for the time being. Cheers!
