Jason's first post
OK, so here is my first attempt at posting on this-here bloggy thingy-majig. Not much has changed since Kristin's last blog. She's still going to school, with only one mid-sized nervous breakdown that she has had to deal with. I'm sure it is only the first of many to come :). The kids have actually done pretty well with Mom's absence. It has been nice that I have a job where I can schedule my work shifts around her school schedule so that we can have at least one of us around for the kids. We are also blessed to have Kristin's and my parents around to help watch the kids once a week while I'm working and she's in school.
My brother Darik is leaving to Afghanistan later this month with his National Guard unit. He will be gone for a little over a year. It kind of stinks, because he was just gone from January to October of last year to Monterey CA for linguistics school. The kids have loved having him around, and I know they will really miss him while he's gone this time around. No one plays with the kids quite as much as Darik does, so he has quickly become a favorite play-mate. We will all miss him and pray that he will be protected while he's gone.
Isn't that a cute pic of Luke sleeping with his Spidey?
