The Silent Ranks-I wear no uniforms, no blues or greens. But, I am in the military, in the ranks rarely seen. I have no rank upon my shoulders. Salutes I do not give. But in the military world is where I live and am rarely seen. I am not in the chain of command, orders I do not give or get. But my husband is the one who does, this I can not forget. I am not the one who fires a weapon, Who puts his life on the line. But my job is just as tough, Iâ€™m the one who is always left behind. My husband is a patriot, a brave and pride filled man. And the call to serve his country not all can understand. Behind the lines, I see things needed to keep this country free. My husband makes the sacrifice, but so do my kids and me. I love the man I married. The military is his life. So I pledge to support my hero and stand among the silent ranks known as THE MILITARY WIFE.

Well we leave in 10 days for our trip to Ohio. I took the boys to the dollars store today to get each of them 5 things to keep them busy on the plane ride there. They are so excited!! They came home and put it all in their backpacks and asked once again "when are we going?". Im soooooooo sick of that question. I sat down with them and showed them on the calender. I'll probably get the question again in the morning right when they wake up........Thank Goodness it's not that much longer!

Gabe is at work tonight looking from the camera on the desk with a perfect view of Airforce 1, Lucky him!! I asked him if I could just camp outside of the base to see the president but he said he didn't think that would be the best idea, darn it:( I sent the camera to work with him tonight and told him to take a picture. I'll post it if he does!!

Doesn't it seem like some days you have nothing to do and others you have too much to do? Well this weekend was just full of everything! This was Gabes weekend off. On friday he uncovered the swap cooler. This Spring has been so crazy. One day its hot and the next it is freezing. I wish it would just make up its mind!!! He had a Softball Game on friday which I heard the other team was poor sports. Thanks Jeff and Jackie for coming up to play!! On Saturday Gabe started off his day by mowing the lawn while I got all the kids ready for the day. We hit up the case lot sale on the base and got some great deals. Afterwards we had to go and buy another storage shelve for it all. We made our rounds to Home depot and of course Walmart. That night we took the family to the drive in. We saw Iron man which wasn't my favorite but the kids seemed to have a great time, which is all that matters. Sunday we had Kaysons first birthday party down in Salt Lake. Gabe loaded up the grill in the back of his truck to take down to the park. We went by Gabes parents to show them the truck while we were down there. They seemed to like it!! Chloe has been not feeling so well lately. She sleeps all night but is fussy all day. I think she might be teething already. I feel so bad for her. We got some teething tablets to try and they seem to work but I think I might take her into wee care tomorrow just to make sure its nothing besides teething. She has had the runs so bad too!! Poor Chlo Chlo!! Gosh this is Kyles last week of school. I can't believe my little boy is going to be in the 2nd grade soon. Time Flys!! Hope everyone else had a great weekend!! Much Love

Well things have been a little nuts around here lately. Gabe went back to working mids which I hate. My mom had major surgery on Monday and is getting out of the hopsital today (thurseday). She is doing good though!! Gabe got him the truck of his dreams a few weeks ago and loves it! He works so hard, he deserves it!! Kyle is almost done with the 1st grade and is becoming quiet the reader. Im so proud of him!! I just found out that my old daycare kids Natalie, Otis and Henry are moving back so I will have them again. We are all so excited!! The boys have missed them so much this past year. We are getting ready for our trip to Ohio in just 3 weeks. Im flying on the 9th with all the kids and Gabe will follow 3 days later! We are also going to see my brother who is stationed in Charelston South Carolina while we are there. Gabe and I are playing on our Softball team again. One of Ky's friends mom offered to watch the kids during practices and game which helps out alot!! I'll try to write more soon. Chloe is hungry so I better go fill her litle belly!!
