Goodbyes

~Waiting :)

~Last Sunday at church together

Yesterday was the day to say goodbye to my Benjamin. It was such a nice day though. I got to be with him for the whole day while he had to go through the whole process, being sworn in again and signing his contract. He also had to do more tests and exams. We were there for over eight hours. I was very happy, being able to be with him longer than I first had thought! Then we finally went to the airport. They gave me a pass to go with him to his gate. I was so proud of myself! I didn't show him any tears! I knew if I started crying, it would be that much harder for him to leave. I saved them for the car. He was able to call me that night and let me know he had made it safely! So now I have about 9 weeks to wait and see him, which I am praying they will go by fast! :) I posted some pictures of Sunday at our evening service and of yesterday waiting all day! :)

Tomorrow marks nine weeks pregnant. I am feeling better thankfully! Not near as much nausea and smellies! :P I had a lot of fun today, I went over to Whole Foods and bought some good prenatales and calcium/magnesium. Then I had fun getting some healthy fresh yogurt and REALLY fresh milk! The milk is in the glass bottle and everything! :P We have a great Whole Foods here. I am going to miss it when we move.

I will try to get some more posts out. I have fallen behind again! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I can't believe its July tomorrow! :P

Oh, Elizabeth, you are brave! I'm not sure I would have been able to hold back the tears.

I admire your positive outlook very much!

I cannot imagine how sad you must have been. I don't think I could have done it! Like Davene, I too admire your positivity!

Thanks Melissa! So sweet.

I had heard from a Navy wife that one of the hardest things on her husband was when she would show her tears. Not that he didn't like them, but that he didn't want to leave her that way. Not to worry, there will be tears as time passes and we have to experience this again!!!! :)
