We will Survive!

Well we have made it through the first few days of Jeremy's absence. The hardest part has been that we can't call him. I have really taken for granted the little things and being able to pick up the phone and just chat is huge! They are hoping to get wi fi up and working in the ship and if they do that it will make getting emails a whole lot easier.

Lorenzo has been going full force with the Autism Demonstration Project. I got our authorization from our insurance today and the amount they have approved him for is more then Jeremy even makes in a year. I really love the Navy today. Just that alone is going to help me get through the next few months.

The program is awesome, Lorenzo has been going to day camp 3 days a week and then we have a tutor come to our home 2 days a week and Sat. they are planing fun wilderness activities. All of this is incorporated into therapy and providing Lorenzo with the extra help he needs. It is amazing!!!

Here are some pictures Jeremy email me today. It looks like they will be living in close quarters. He says he is doing well so far, it is really REALLY hot, he says it makes Hawaii seem cool. I feel bad for they guys he is rooming with that have to smell his feet at the end of the day. They leave for Tonga today. We are excited to get more pictures.

Wow, that sounds like a great program you've found for Lorenzo. I was going through some old picture files the other day and I saw some of Lorenzo and Riley with my girls in nursery and primary; I can't believe how much they've all grown up in the past few years.

I hope this deployment flies by for you!

And it starts...the looking at the clock every so often and wondering what time it is on the ship. Or, looking at the internet every hour for updates from the ship...Looking at websites of the places the ship stops at. Ahh, deployment... :) Just remember, "loose lips, sink ships". I always got that from people when David was out. Never tell anyone online or over the phone, where the ship movement is until it gets there. It safer.

I am really excited and happy for you guys and for Lorenzo. What a blessing with everything working so well for him, right when Jeremy leaves. You guys will be great!

Call me anytime! Keep busy, like you have a choice! :) The time will fly if you're busy. Love you and the boys. You're always in our prayers.

So how many guys will be staying in that little cabin? At least Jeremy's roommates will have his humor to combat his smelly feet! :)
