It's scary and awful, but good too. There are things the military can provide that we need and have missed. And Jason has missed being a soldier, it's the life he loves.
Jason's new job is with the headquarters of his unit. So, when he deploys, he'll be far away from the front lines. In an air conditioned building (thank goodness computers need air conditioning) somewhere with all the big wigs. We're counting every small blessing we can find.
All really is well, but we're busy making all the arrangements right now. Keeping the kids stable is priority number one. Emma seems excited that her daddy will be a soldier again (plus the thought of talking to him via web cam is just too cool for words), but the reality will be hard. And we never know how George will interpret long absences. Most likely, Jason will have a 35 pound growth attached to him every weekend!
