Last week was a tad rough. After 6 weeks of the deployment, the reality of 7 more months of missing Daddy sunk in and we were all in a bit of a funk. Not to mention the fact that Congress shut down the government which meant Luke's soccer season was cancelled and so were Hayley's horseback riding lessons because they play/ride through programs offered by MCCS (government run). Thanks, Congress.
I decided to surprise the kids and spend last Thursday at LEGOLAND. We renewed our season passes (thanks Aunt Holly) and spent the day playing with our friends.
We had a great time! Just what the doctor ordered to help lift our spirits. And I'm happy to report that Youth Sports and the Stables are up and running again so it's back to soccer and horses this week. Woohoo!
