Weston being home...

I haven't blogged in forever! Weston came home a month ago and all the excitement began! We traveled back home to Indiana for Easter weekend to spend time with the Tabor family, and we were all excited to see everyone, I was super excited to get to go to church. I missed the services and praise and worship, and of course the PEOPLE! But... Ama and Abi both came down with strep throat and fevers the day before church. So no church for us... and yes I cried... But all in all we had a really good visit and a good time with everyone! After the trip to Indiana we headed back south to Georgia, where we had a couple days to get ready for our big trip to Disney World. We had a blast at Disney World! At the end of the month we all agreed it was our favorite thing we did while Weston was home. We felt SO blessed that we had the opportunity to go there (thanks Mom and Dad for taking us!!!).  We had a full week there and at the end of the week we were exhausted!!! But we managed to go to Sea World and spend a few hours there before making the drive home that evening. A perk of being in the military, Sea World will give free tickets up to 4 for a military family, only once a year. So since we were already in Orlando we took advantage of it!

After our Disney trip we came back to Georgia until Weston had to head back to South Korea. We spent a lot of time with family here and did a lot of fun things! Found out that Weston is AWESOME at the game corn hole... made me mad a little bit ; )  (I can be a little too competitive at times).  We went fishing, rode the razor, got to go to the church I attend down here. We had a date night... we had a birthday party for him since he would be gone during his birthday and he got some new shirts and an awesome pair of new shoes! We had a really good time while he was home, and we were not looking forward to today. We got up early this morning and he tossed and turned all night and had a headache, and we made the 2 and half hour trip to Atlanta, GA.  When we got to the security checkpoint we started our "goodbyes", both of us were crying and Ama too...Abi just stared at us giving us a funny look. But when Weston went to go through the girl that had watched us asked if he were Military and said we could get gate passes to go through security and to the gate with him. It was really nice... kindof eases the sting a little bit! The girls slept all the way home from Atlanta, which gave me plenty of time to process and get in "single" mode again. It felt so wonderful to have Weston home... I hated him leaving me again, each goodbye seems just a little harder. But the good thing with this one, is we are almost done! Next time he comes home we will be joining him at his next duty station. His branch manager isn't one that allows the soldier to pick his next duty station after a hardship tour. So we have no idea where we will go. We keep getting "unlucky" with this Army thing. But God keeps reminding me about how He is in control. I thought the next duty station was finally one thing we could control, and of course we don't. We had to get the one manager that doesn't do that! We should know in the next month or 2 where we go.

We are very blessed to have had a whole month together, we had an amazing time, and I hope the next 5 months fly by. God has truly blessed our family and I am so thankful! Here are a few pictures, enjoy : )
