A Year in Review-2008

2008 was a big year for us. As a family we experienced a lot and grew stronger as a result. The children grew by leaps and bounds and were able to experience some new adventures. The kids and I shared a month long trip with family in NY. We beamed with pride and celebrated as Toby graduated from flight school. We packed up and said goodbye to some of the dearest friends we have ever made and drove north from Alabama back to North Carolina. We moved to a new house and Sprout and Sprite started new schools. We witnessed history in the making when our new president was elected. Sprout experienced his first operation. I said goodbye to being a stay-at-home Mommy as I began a new career in the end of 2008. There were some major changes and some not so major changes but all have shaped us and changed us in some way. Thank you all for sharing these experiences with us and supporting us along the way!

We look to the future with hope and sadness as we know that we will have to see Toby off for a 12 month deployment in the spring. This will be the first time we will be separated as a family since Sprite was born in May of 2006 and it is, no doubt, going to be a very difficult transition for all but we are thankful for the time that we had together and all of the memories that will carry us through the next year!

Lovely. I was sad when I heard Toby would be deploying. I know you guys will be fine and hopefully the year will fly by.

Many great memories in 08, I wish you even greater happiness in 09.
