Zach is now officially in Iraq at his Base. His base is called Falcon. It's in southern Baghdad.
We got to talk to Zach on Skype today. Originally, I was thinking, oh, the phone calls and occasional email will be okay. We'll save money that way and it's really not that big of a deal. I was completely wrong! It was so fantastic to see Zach talk and smile. The kids were ecstactic. Cai kept staring at our moniter (which a giant flat screen tv) in wonder and Lleida kept jumping up and down and saying, "Hi Dad! I see you, I see me!"
Obviously, a good time was had by all, and best of all, we got to say Good Night and blow kisses to Daddy before the kiddies went to bed.
