Wow! Talk about compassion! All I could say was thank you (about a dozen times). For you military spouses out there, you know what it is like to sit in a DEERS/ID office. The wait is usually no less than 2 hours and all you can do is sit in the room filled with other annoyed people who are watching CNN (the military’s favorite channal). The best part about it, the picture is ten times better than my old one! Maybe lossing my wallet was a blessing in disguise.
So, moving on….
We are approaching black berry season. By this time most years black berry season has pretty much hit its peek, not this year. Our black berries have yet to even become ripe. Yesterday we decided to walk down the street to see if any other bushes were near ready. During our walk we discovered some wild blue berry bushes and an apple tree in the brush behind our house! While I don’t think we will pick from the blue berry bush, I do think the apples will be great to eat in a few weeks. How cool to think our family could eat fresh free wild grown fruit(read: no pesticides or dangerous chemicals!) all from our own backyard!!!
Another exciting thing happened today. Vincent started Vacation Bible School. I have to admitt, I got kinda teary eyed as I dropped him off. I can’t believe my little boy is grown up enough to be in VBS! He did not want to leave today, he had a great time. He was pretty excited about going back tomorrow as well. Speaking of which, I need to go get ready for tomorrow. I have to get all the clothes ready for tomorrow before I go to bed…..’
