My last post was a little over two months ago and it was written just after I had arrived at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. To say a lot has changed since then would be an understatement. While I have been extremely busy since I got here, even sometimes working over the weekends (mostly self-induced), part of why I have not written is because it is likely going to be my last post for quite a while (pending the few I have in the hopper). As was always a possibility in my profession, I am going to deploy soon, and will not have the time, connectivity, or material to write while overseas.
Their Mother and I have already worked out the details surrounding the girls and they will be spending the year in Texas with her while I am overseas. Given that I found out early in the Summer, it was relatively convenient that the girls will be able to start school in Texas in lieu of being pulled from class in Kentucky at a later date. While the girls are not particularly happy about this situation (they are downright sad, sometimes bordering on being mad at me), they understand it is something I have to do in the Army. And as best as possible for an 8- and 7-year old to grasp geo-politics, they also understand why. They know that I am going to do my best to keep in touch while I am away, stay safe, and hurry back to them as quickly as possible.
Thanks for checking in on us.
