Watching the big kids play...

Notice Claire's new trick?!? We have a sitter, folks! One day last week I thought, Hmmm...wonder if she can sit? And sure enough! She does such a great job, and very rarely falls over. In fact, today when we were trying to Skype my mom, I ran to her bedroom with her sitting up and came back to find her on her belly, messing with the computer....
Claire wore her soccer warm up outfit today, and I couldn't help but take a few pictures.

Bud is packing tonight to head to the field for about a week. It will be the first time he is away from Claire, but it will be good for all of us to "practice" being apart. I have been alone by myself and with Lacey, but never alone with Claire for more than a night. We will all be fine, and it is really great for Bud to get to spend some time with his team leader before they leave. EOD works in teams of 2-team leader and team member. This week long field exercise is to build that relationship and make sure the team can work well together. These next few months are going to be full of things like this, and while I don't necessarily like it, I would never complain. This training is all very important and could potentially save his life. We have been apart for 7 months at a time, 3 times, a week will be a breeze...right? We have been very spoiled, and Bud has not left for more than 5 or 6 days since August 2009.... Time to go help Bud pack so we can get to bed before midnight. :)
