Finally... Bentley is walking :)

We are glad to announce to the world that little Bentley Coupe is finally walking!!! He started a couple of days ago. He will walk around if he want something. He might fall after 5 or so steps but he'll just pick himself up and start walking again. We had to bribe him with food to get him to walk but that did the trick. He might not look like a pig but HE IS. He will eat anything and everything that you put in front of him. He's our crazy little adventurer. Rykkar is sure happy that Bentley can walk around with him. It's so cute to watch them play. They are best friends and play together all day. They fight like brothers but love like brothers. I am so happy with these 2 beautiful boys.

Coming home in May

YAY! We just got the best news ever. Because of some very generous people we are going to be coming home in May. One of the soldiers in Josh's unit had his dad put together a fund raiser and they raised enough money to help families that didn't have tickets to go home before the deployment. Yesterday we got confirmation that we will all be coming hom May 15th through the 25th. It will be so nice to see everyone before josh deploys for 12 months. So keep your schedules open and we will see you soon :)

Less than 90 days....

It's so crazy that we have come this far with our militairy journey. In less than 90 days Josh will be deploying to a war zone for a 12 month tour. I can't believe it's actually here. Signing up for the Army and knowing that this day would come is very differen't when it's actually here and aproaching. I am so proud of Josh. What an amazing man to be willing to go to war for his country. Also another exciting day for us was last week when Josh was promoted again to Specialist Clements. I believe that he should be getting his Sgt while he's down range. Anyways, we have gotten a tip from Josh's battery that there is a rather wealthy billionare (lol) who knows one of the Sgt's in the battery. He would like to do something for the soldiers and is thinking about flying the soldiers and their families home for block leave in May before the deployment. SO this means anyone who hasn't boughten tickets which means us. I really hope this happens. It sounds a little too good to be true but I am trying not to think that way and trying to positive image this really happening. It would be so nice to come to Utah for even just a week. Josh called me this morning and told me to get our passports ready to give to his Commander so I hope that is a good sign that this really might be happening. Pray for us that this really can happen and that we will get the opportunity to come home in May.
