Moving, Baby, Deployment

We found out we're moving to Mississippi in a couple months. Then we'll be receiving a new special bundle of joy in February! That's right, we're PREGNANT. 17 weeks to be exact. We don't know what we're having yet and might keep it a surprise. ;) After we have baby #3 we will sadly have to say goodbye to daddy in March as he deploys to Japan for 9 months. We are sad to see him go but very excited it is to Japan and not Afghanistan! We love the military and believe in supporting our troops in defending and building up our country. ;) We know the Lord will take care of us as we begin these big new adventures over the next year. Wish us luck!

WOW!! YAY! CONGRATULATIONS!!! So much excitement. I'm trying to remember, is Matt in the Air Force? Kevin is trying to get an Air Force scholarship right now and we'd work for them for at least 3 years. It's good to hear that you enjoy the military. Good luck with the deployment, that will be a lot on your plate. Good to hear the update!

Love,
Karen Bourne

Congrats! You guys are just pumping out those kiddos! I think it's so funny that we were having our first babies at the same time and now you are WAY ahead of me :) I'm so glad that he is getting deployed to a much safer area than Afghanistan. I suppose you will soon be introduced to the life of single parent-hood. Even though my husband isnt gone for 9 months straight, I still feel like I know what it's like. Not fun. I'm sure you will do so awesome! Congrats again!

Congrats on the baby. We will miss you. The military is a great way of life, but the seperations can be tough. We loved Japan when we were there. Good Luck with all the exciting happenings coming into your life.

Yeah!! Congratulations! It is so weird to think that all the people that I grew up with are having kids and living all across the country! I am glad also that your hubby is not going to the middle east. It is probably much safer in Japan!

congratulations, and I hope you enjoy Mississippi.

How exciting! I'm so sorry we missed you guys last week, I've actually been trying to come up with a good weekend to head down to D.C. so that we can see you guys. It sounds like there's not much time left before you head out.

Congrats on baby #3!!! I think it would be fun to have a surprise but I'm not brave enough yet! I'm also due in Feb and we are having a girl. I can't believe you are going to be alone with 3 kids for so long, you'll have to let me know how to stay sane, I'm so nervous about Adam being deployed for such a long time, I'm not sure if I'm tough enough to handle it! Best of luck!!

Congratulations Nicole and Matt!! 3 kids will be an adventure! Good luck with all that is to come. I remember how strong you are from when you used to visit teach me- just keep up your optimistic attitude! Thanks for your wonderful example that has helped me all these years. Hope you enjoy the holiday season!
