Getting back to it

So, where to start? We are now 8 weeks and 2 days into our first deployment and I have moved back to Alabama to be with my family until he comes back to the America. It feels weird thinking how far I am from Kerry. Skype has become my bestfriend, even on the days when it doesn't want to work right.

I have been trying to keep myself occupied with all of the things that I can't do or have while I am up in South Dakota. I am getting to spend time with family and eat awesome food. Getting to catch up on all those Mexican food meals I missed out on. One of the best things about being home is getting to be a normal big sister. My brother is 15 and is on the Varsity football team! I am very proud of him and excited that I am here to go to his games. So far they are 3-0 so it is a good year to be in the stands :) Here is a picture of my baby brother and me after one of his games

I'm also trying to get my scrapbook on! I have been holding on to so many mementos and if they aren't in a scrapbook by the time it's time to go back to South Dakota, I'm throwing them away. I think that may be the only way to get myself motivated to actually get things into the scrapbooks!
