It certainly hasn't been fun having Dad be gone for so long, but we have really enjoyed hearing about all the experiences he is having in Afghanistan. He sends great pictures and is always sharing information about the culture and the people there. Needless to say, after reading his letters and emails I find myself feeling so grateful for the lives we have here in this country.
Over the weekend we had a fun surprise--Dad had sent a gift home for Parker! He is now the proud owner of a village elder hat. I don't think they'll be coming in style here anytime soon, but what a fun gift! Thanks Dad!
