He wanted to get involved! :)
We had a WONDERFUL weekend and start to this week TOGETHER as a family! Russell was off from training on Friday and Monday, so it made for a super long weekend and two short work weeks! :) I'm so fulfilled from the weekend that I'm actually READY to get into the week, even if Russell does start his training back up! I told Russell tonight, "One week down, and we're already into week two!" I also mentioned, "Honey, do you realize that we only have 11 weeks to go until Caleb is here?" :) That took him aback...Caleb WILL be here, Lord willing, before we know it!
Another HUGE praise from the weekend...we met a wonderful couple through Russell's training classes. We had dinner with Gabe and Amy on Saturday night, had them over for dessert and Joker :) on Sunday night, and then had lunch and played more Joker with them today! Gabe and Russell are working out together in the mornings, prepping for their first PT test, which will be next Tuesday, and Amy is my new walking partner! We speed walked together this morning and plan to do so again tomorrow morning. She's also WONDERFUL with children, so she comes to the playground with me and Rhys, and we just keep each other good company! We have been encouraged by the army to get to know other wives from our husbands' classes, so we're doing so, and it's been very encouraging! God has blessed my prayers to not only find a walking partner, but she's also follower of Christ! I praise the Lord for this answered prayer!
