AJ has been give the notice that he will be activated to go to Afghanistan later this year. He is getting ready to go on his second 2 weeks of school tomorrow. We had a great time in Michigan and tried to not focus on what is going to happen later this year. We ended up telling the boys yesterday. We thought Keegan would take it the hardest, but turned out that Brayden actually did. He is a very emotional little boy, but tends to keep things bottled up. I was surprised that he would be so upset, but think he was most upset that he will miss his birthday. I will find a way to get through this. The nice thing is that a group is getting deployed and I will have some of my fellow wives. Please say a prayer for us if you think about it. I need all the strength and patience I can get. I will be posting this a lot more frequently as I completely need an outlet. Please bookmark this page and check back often.
