68 Days Go Alexander!

Getting armed with notebooks, pens, calendars, menu’s, decorating ideas, and other blogs here on WordPress.

I have started a board on Pinterest  labeled Marines The Few The Proud.  I love that people share their ideas for letters and gift boxes and encouragement all around the world on Pinterest and other sites.  Go ahead and check out my Pinterest and my FacebookJennifer New 

Gary found a very wonderful, helpful, informative site usmcgradparrisisland.org.  I can not wait to have some alone time  to learn from this dear lady that worked so hard to inform us parents about graduation day at Parris Island.  The notebooks and calendars are so I can write everything down that is starting to swirl through my head during the day and while I sleep.

Many prayers being sent up, but much more blessings being sent down.

Jennifer love and happiness

77 Days

77 days and all is well. There is a blanket of contentment covering me. I am breathing in and the air is coming out without a thought. Our Easter weekend was true family time. Saturday was Outback and a couple of foster’s with Gary.  Then the rest of the day was spent hanging out with the kids and yard work and grocery shopping for our cookout the next day. We stayed up late,till the next day, with Alex and our daughter, Kelsey. Easter day was just beautiful. Our home was loud with laughter and picture taking. I stood in the kitchen and watched my son sit on the couch, making jokes and ripping into a bag of reese’s pieces. Then that night we had on the Disney movie Frozen. It was just Gary,our granddaughter, and myself. Then wonderfully,Kelsey came in and then Alexander was there and we hung out again. Talking,laughing. This is where the contentment started and the easy breathing began. Each day until Alexander leaves for the Marines in Parris Island is rapidly going by, and we are spending them all happily together.
