Lately it seems that time is really flying by. I guess it started once I had Austin..I mean where did this year go?! It seems that we should still be in summer but we are thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas now. Can't believe it is time for all of that! Austin is over half way to ONE already!!! That just shocks the pants right off me! Well, not really but you know what I mean. :P And in the past couple weeks time has started moving at a warp speed!!!! I was thinking that today was Tuesday and then it hit me no this is THursday. The end of the last full week in this house!!! I cant' believe it is time to move! I am so excited to be going home for a while and so excited for our family to get some time with the boys. It is also kinda sad to say goodbye to a place that has left us with so many memories. WAY to many to mention. Brett was in a crib when we moved here and now he is in preschool and can carry on a decent conversation. We also have another little one now in a crib. CRAZY!!!!! I can think of some really fun times that we had here. Like Brett really learning how to talk. Finding out we were pregnant with Austin, Bringing Austin home from the hospital, Birthdays, holidays when we had to live with Caitlin and ALex while we were waiting on base housing... Now there was some adventures there LOL. And then there was DEb and my Ikea trips.. those were fun. Hanging out with Jess on cold winter afternoons while the boys played... target trips with Dana.. target trips with Deb.... coffee nights with Angie...popping over to Deb's house for a chat...Going to Friendly's with Deb and the kids quiet nights at home with my boys. I could go on and on. There is so many good memories that I am taking with me as I go. I know I sound like a sap but I can't help it. It is almost like our lives are lived in 3 year increments. You change and grow so much during each duty station. It is so weird to think of what things were like when you moved here and how they are now. We have been very blessed while we were here. We have alot of great memories and have made some awesome friends! I am excited for our next adventure but I know that there are gonna be times when I REALLY miss this place and all of the friends we made here. I guess the one word that sums it up is BITTERSWEET.



I will be thinking of you while I'm at IKEA this weekend. I miss you lots and will always be in touch. I have a lot of those same memories and it is hard to leave but you have so many new memories to make. Cherish them all.
