Well, after seeing so many friends do this blog thing, I thought I would give this a try. I hope this will be a place where family and friends can check in from time to time and see how we are doing.
Recently we moved from El Paso, Texas, to Columbia, South Carolina, where my husband, Shawn in a Drill Sergeant in the US Army. Even as I am writing this, the bugle is sounding for the end of the day, a sound that has become very familiar over the last 6 weeks. This army post is all about training soldiers - "Victory Starts Here". At o'dark thirty in the morning I am usually awakened, not by my alarm clock, but by a canon blast and the sounds of cadence in the distance. I sometimes pause and think about what all these sounds mean to us... our family.
We live in a unique place, a community of families who live the same lifestyle we do on a daily basis. I hope to share with those who don't know, a little more understanding of what life is like for us. And for those who do share this world with me, please insert your opinions where you want to.
