The silver lining and moving on..

I was able to get another copy of my military ID today.  It turns out, the ID office was open (apparently unbeknownst to the MP office staff that helped me out on Saturday).  A very helpful civilian employee helped me out today.  While Vincent was at VBS I took the younger 3 kiddos to the ID office and waited for Brian to arrive so I could get the new ID.  A very nice employee approached me just minutes after Jack let me know very verbally that he was hungry NOW.  She told me to come sit down in a chair across the room. So I did.  Minutes later she helped me with all of the kiddos and took me to her cubicle.  After typing in some info and asking me a few verification questions she told me to look into the camera.  She had taken me ahead of the other 60 or so people waiting in line.  She told me “if you wait out there you will have to be here for 3 to 4 hours, you don’t need to be here with all of your kids so I went ahead and took you.” 
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…..’
