We Have a Date!!

Can you see the smile on my face??


We now have a time (next month) when Soldier Boy will return safely home to us from his overseas deployment.

The countdown begins.

The other kids are beginning to get excited, they have started to plan -and anything could happen when those two get their heads together!!

Today I got a nice little stack of letters from Soldier Boy & a USB with piccies of him AND some sketches he has done. Soldier Boy has always been a talented artist & after him not drawing much of late it's nice to see him back at it.

After carefully opening the envelopes and unfolding the letters trying real hard not to touch the paper to much, I let his Red Cattle Dog (Pictured above) smell them to see if he could pick up on his scent. Well now, I can't tell of course if he definitely did or not but he sure put on a show, ran around wildly & then started talking in his funny little dog way where his lips go up in a smile then the noise begins. Incidentally this is something he has only started doing seriously in the last 6mths & seeing as he is now 10years old-Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks.

Yeah I know -you probably think I'm mad. Ha!! Ha!! Mums missing Soldier Boys are bound to go off the deep end and do some pretty weird stuff, but then maybe I'm just joining in with the rest of the family.

Have a good one!!
Caroline xoxo
