In a few short days, my stepdad (aka: Mr. House and Car Fixer-Upper/Knower Of All Random Facts) is leaving for Afghanistan. He will be gone for 30 days, and while I know this isn't near as long as some men and women leave their families, I honestly do not know what we are going to do without him.
Here is 4/5ths of the family in Iowa in '08
And this is my sweet sweet step sister in '08. Can't believe she is almost 8 years old now! She is gonna miss her daddy!
And here is my beautiful mother. He sure does make her happy.
We love you and will miss you every single day. Hurry back home!
