Eric is off again on another deployment. It is never easy, but this time just seems too soon. We were just getting used to having him home again, and now he is gone. He had to report to base at about 9:00 last night, so the little ones stayed home and Annabelle, Grace and I drove him into work to say goodbye.
We hope this deployment goes by quickly, that we have many visitors along the way (hint, hint), and that Eric is home safely before we know it.
