Ups and downs

We have officially made our appt for our 3D/4D ultrasound. We will be going on Nov 17 (yes that's a Saturday). I will definitely be posting the pics ASAP!!!! YEAH - we are so excited!!!!!!!!!!!

On a not so happy note - Cory has received official word that he will deploy in early July 08. We knew it was coming and I feel like we are prepared. Its going to be a long 15 MONTHS. The Army has the longest deployment schedule. 15 months is the bare minimum. Some units stay longer. Please pray for our family as we begin to deal with the reality that his day is coming. We must begin to explain to the girls what's going on and I must re-learn how to be a "single mother". Cory is having an exceptionally hard time dealing with the idea that he will miss a lot of Reese's "first". I'm just ready for him to go and get it over with because once he returns, his contract will almost be up and we can put this whole Army thing behind us!! I will posting more news as we know it and as it changes (as Uncle Sam LOVES to do).

Don and I will keep you in our prayers. Keep the Lord in your heart and you will make it through. The girls will be a big help with the baby. Wendy
