Just wanted to stop by and let you all know that I am not abandoning the blog... just been REALLY busy preparing for deployment. We've been spending every free minute together as a family, so I haven't had time to sit down and gather thoughts for a blog. Most of my evenings are spent going over the list of last minute things to accomplish before the big departure date. I have, however, been posting some pictures to Flickr. I'm sure once we figure out a new normal around here I'll get back to blogging, but for now it's just not on the top of my list. Be back soon!!!
