this was our weekend. we spent it saying goodbye. i'm sitting here trying to think of what to say about it. and all i can think to write is that it was hard. we enjoyed every last minute of the time we had together, and in six short (hopefully) months we'll be celebrating a homecoming.
so to quote something emma said on the way home last night, "it's just really hard. but we can do it. we can do our jobs with good teamwork and togetherness."
thank you for your kind words and prayers.
journaling: five deployments. two and a half years. i’m not sure how it came so quickly but it did none the less. this was by far the hardest goodbye we have to say. maybe it’s because the girls understand just how long six months is, or maybe it’s just because deployments are just plain hard and we really miss you
