Bye Bye Uncle Eric

We arrived home safely from our road trip to Kentucky and are so thankful that we got to spend time with my brother, sister-in-law, 2 nieces and my Mom. We had a wonderful time with all of them and are especially glad that we made the effort to see my brother. He had to fly back to Saudi Arabia today for at least 6 more months, if not longer. It breaks my heart that he will miss another huge chunk of time with his girls. Jordyn, who is 2 days older than my boys, just started really reconnecting with Eric the last week he was home. Now, he'll have to leave her again. Logan, his 10 year old step-daughter is just starting 5th grade. At least he got to share in her first day of school while we were there. Thankfully, they have a web cam and get to see each other a couple times a week. But, it's still not the same as being together in person.

I love the video below of Eric with the 3 toddlers playing in the bounce house - I call them "the triplets!"

Bryce and Drew had a blast playing with their Uncle Eric. He's just a big kid! Eric, thank you for loving your nephews like you do!

Eric, we are all so proud of you. Thank you for serving our country and for the sacrifices that you and your family are making. We love you and will miss you. We will continue to pray for safety for you and your girls and that your time In Saudi will pass quickly.

More pics from Kentucky to come...

This just made me want to cry - next time you talk to your brother tell him we said thank you as well for all the sacrifices he (and his whole family) are making! We'll be praying!
