Alrighty, people. I realize it's been quite some time since I last posted, but in my defense, I'm lazy.
To update ya'll on what's been happening, Zach was able to come home for a few days, and then I went to North Carolina with Zach for a week, before he took to the skies and headed over seas. The children and I basked in all that is Zach and I had a fabulous week alone with Zach (Thanks Mom!)
Now, everything is back to semi normalcy, albeit without Zach. Z says it's hot over there, but the chow is good. We say it's finally nice over here, and the kids are constantly dirty because they LOVE to play in the dirt. Not the grass, or the swing set, or with balls, the dirt. I have wised up and bought them a plethora of cheap shovels and rakes and the like and so far the children are quite happy, which in turn makes me happy. I'll try and post some pictures of them "gardening" soon.
