Quite the adventure....

Our marriage has been! 22 years ago today my soldier boy and I were married and the crazy ride began!  I think I'll emulate my friend and give you a few bullet points.....
  • We met while working at the Grand Canyon summer of 87
  • Attended Northern AZ Univ. together
  • From College ROTC  to Senior Enlisted Active Duty --
  • 10 Anniversaries together -- 12 Apart (including the first two thanks to Korea and the Gulf War)
  • Home approximately 10.5 of those years does that mean we've only really been married half of our marriage? :)
  • 4 beautiful blessings -- two of which are Korea returnee babies! and amazingly he was home for all of their births! Hooaah! although he did leave the day after Sara was born to go back to AIT ....
  • 9 PCS moves, 21 addresses, 322 days in guest housing/tent sites/hotels/friends homes, 13 tactical addresses, and countless miles on vehicles! 
  • Lots of practical geography & social study  lessons for homeschooling -- how many miles to? we're moving where? 
  • Countless Dr. visits, ER runs, broken vehicles/appliances, a few surgeries and Fisher House visits, caring for friends,......etc
  • 6 year or longer Deployments -- two extended indefinitely, that was FUN! lol ... and we're in the middle of number 6.  
  • BDUs/DCUs/ACUs/Greens & Blues and the ASU now -- can the Army please make up it's mind? (fyi we should have kept the BDUs/DCUs :) )
  • Lots of fighting and making up, lovin on each other and kiddos
I wouldn't trade our Army life for anything -- even with all the hardships, obstacles, tears and fears. God has used and continues to use it for our good. I can't wait to see what He will do in the next 22 years!  I love you Timothy!! Happy Anniversary!
