Another letter

I received another letter from Christopher yesterday. 2 letters in 2 days makes for 1 happy mom.

There seemed to be some up's and down's in the letter but all in all he is still doing fine. He said that they had received their rifles and he was sitting with his battle buddy writing letters with it across his lap. He is homesick and wishing he could call but other than that he was ok.

I mailed out 10 letters yesterday and have another one ready to go out today. Hopefully it will not take as long for him to get letters as it seems to take for him to send them.

I hope everyone is having a great 3 day weekend.

God Bless,

Thanks. I found your scrapping blog. I guess I had it on my blog roll. LOL

I thought you might be interested in this site.

I found her last December while reading the Tampa newspaper. When I contacted her to order some coins she found out I lived near her and we talked about meeting to get the coins (save on postage). When she found out that Shay was in the Air Force and home on leave she asked if she could meet her, in uniform. That is why there is a picture of her boys presenting a coin to Shay on this website. I just ordered 20 more to take to Wright Patterson when Shay graduates. I see you have a ton of military people on your blog roll and I thought they would be interested. I am always talking about it on my Air Force Moms Group.

P.S. I already sent one to Christopher.

How great for you...another letter! The first call I got was pretty emotional...he was very homesick...but he was ok. So definitely be prepared for that. I would love to write to Chrispher if that would be ok....I could send him some cards to send home too. Let me know.
