He sent me a text last night and told me that he shaved finally and so I told him to send me a picture and this is what he sent me...I laughed my a$$ off because its only a half picture and it looks like a bad mug shot....he's a turd!!!! Now dont get me wrong I have nothing against facial hair but when it starts looking like you have an animal living on your chin its time to do something about it...so I was very happy to see that my Dakota once again is showin off that cute face..without the animal attached!!!
As for Devin he is settling back into the school routine....he's a big 5th grader...the "top dog" of the elementary!! We went last night and got him signed up for 5 & 6th grade tackle football...TACKLE...in the 5th grade oh good lord Im not ready for this....oh I love football and watched the older two play all thru jr high and high school...and Devin has been playing flag football the last couple of years..but this is my baby and hes only in the 5th grade and ....ITS TACKLE!!! ok mom stop.....im sure it will be fine....but man last night when he tried on his pads....I felt a little sad, scared, thinking omg time is just flying by!!! Anyway somehow I will survive this too and will be watching my baby from the side lines..praying he doesnt get hurt!!
And now for my Kody he is leaving tomorrow for Germany...We dont have any idea if we will be able to talk to each other at all while he is gone...and I know some can say its only for 3 1/2 weeks...but this is 3 1/2 weeks of my son being in another country!!! Yes I know its part of the "job" so to speak when you sign up for anything military....but I wasnt the one that was all excited about this in the first place. Yes Ive grown to accept it and yes Im thankful he isnt being called over to fight in a war ..but Im still nervous about him being so far away, and Im still sad not knowing if we will be able to talk while he is gone...I have a really good relationship with my boys and though the older two are away to college they stay in touch with mom ALOT...and I love that!!!! So my heart is a bit achy today knowing that this time tomorrow my koder is going to be far far away..and it will be 3 1/2 long weeks before I get to see him again!
I love them equally,
but not the same -
for each is different
in their own special way.
Everyday I thank God for
the blessings I've received
in having children
as wonderful as these.
