Goodbye Amy & Rick
Amy and Rick have left for their new life at Norfolk Naval Station. He will get on a ship in June and probably arrive in Japan in August. Amy may actually get to Japan before he gets there. I so remember my military bride days as if they were yesterday. So I can appreciate the fun and adventure they have just embarked on.
At home we have a reality check as we cope with the departure of our 4th child. When you have 6 kids, at least 4 have to leave before you start to feel the effects of the empty nest syndrome. So I cleaned and cried and now I feel better. But then I see her little ballet type shoes in the family room and well.....
