Well this morning will be something like this..It's 4:30 AM and I am up. Wake the boys up at 6:30 and they will; Wake, up, make their bed and get dressed, pick up their room, and eat breakfast all by around 7:00 AM. Quiet time is from there until we leave around 7:15. Today, after we take the boys to school(TC takes the elemtary and I take the middle school) we will come back home and finish packing, turn in all of our paperwork and we are off. Our scheduled off time is every 10 days we get four days off. That is Thursday morning from 8:00 AM until 8:00 PM Sunday night. Last break was spent repairing a water heater I hope this one might be a little more relaxing and not cost so much. That's all folks as I am also taking a few days off from the internet. I still have my sprint card but I just want to be away from everything. God bless and we will see ya around Monday.

Today at Collins we have all day training (8:00-4:00). I really hate the class room cause I know I will fall asleep, but I will try. Our time off is just around the corner so that is nice. I guess I need to get the boys of for breakfast (can you say bagels) and then it's off to training.

Update on chad; Recruiters have no clue what they are talking about. I finally had one to be honest yesterday and tell us she had not explanation why it was taking so long. We were sure it was going to happen Friday but it did not. It could still happen on Saturday or perhaps Monday. Who knows, Chad is getting frustrated has he has everything on hold until this part passes. Hopefully soon, all for now.....

There is one thing I cannot tolerate, injustice. Whether it is social, economic or bullying. I would fight anytime for injustice and when I see it on a small scale I feel as though I need to do something about it. Some say that our country has committed an injustice to the people of Iraq, I say this about that, you better think again. WE(America) has went in to stand against the bully. Are those who protest not smart enough to see this. We are not the bully, the dictator was. We have and I believe always will defend those who cannot defend themselves. There ya go, no need to ask how I feel about that. Anywho, MLK was a great man and he had he had a wonderful fight in him and a good reason in which to fight. Only God knows how much pain and yes still do inflict on someone because of their skin color. I learned some time ago that all men bleed red. I also know that through the blood shed for you and I on Calvary's cross by Jesus Christ my Lord that through him and by him we can say like MLK one day, Free At Last
This was my Christmas present from my sister. Notice the note on the front. I can hardly wait for next years calendar.

Chad is getting frustrated with the Army. After getting his weight below the limit, he had to get a waiver because of something stupid he did. He was told it was going to happen last week, but it look like it will be at least Tuesday, and then 7-10 days after that he should ship out. You play you pay, that is how I feel, but I do hate it for him. He is ready to go so I hope it happens soon. I guess that is all for now....

The MEPS Station got Chad's date wrong so he has to go down tonight instead of last night. Now, it will be Friday before we know for sure and when he will ship out. Friday is also the day that we start at Collins. We will not be with the children until after next week after we go through some initial training(which makes sense) Today TC and I are going to look at a few vehicles. Our primary vehicle is a 92 Chevy Blazer that is becoming wore out, although it has never left us stranded. We'll see. All for now.....

“I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:‘Give me a light, that I may tread safely into the unknown!’
And he replied: ‘Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.’”
What a word that is for us today. No one but God knows what the future holds. Let us do as the poet suggested and place our hands in the hand of Almighty God. And let us go out into the unknown future with confidence, knowing that if God go with us, we need not fear the future. To walk with the Lord is the greatest of all joys, and it is indeed safer than a known way.
Copied from my Internet pastor Dr. Ray Pritchard of Keep Believing Ministries. This spoke to my heart so I thought I would pass it on....
I am hopeful to continue this blog to describe our times with these 8 boys that we have already begun to love and haven't even met them yet. We are planning on going down on Friday and getting some things squared away over the weekend and reading some staff info and perhaps be moving in as early as next Monday. All for now
