Update: PFC Montague

I got a 13 minute phone call from Sam on Sunday. It was such a relief to hear his voice!!! I couldn't help but cry as soon as I saw that it was him on my Caller ID(and several times throughout the call)

He sounded really good. A little sick, but not depressed or regretful about our decision. He was proud to tell me that he'd already written me two letters before he called too. That was fun to hear. I was really worried that I wouldn't get very many letters at all.

I received the letters yesterday! There was even one for Connor, complete with a drawing of a helicopter with Daddy in it and Mommy, Keith, Connor and Bear watching him fly it. Connor has hung the picture right under his light switch so he sees it often.

So we are about a week and a half into our 10 week initial separation and all parties seem to be doing well. I keep Xing days off on the calendar. It gave me a foolish kind of pleasure to flip the calendar to June this morning. That means I have almost exactly 2 months until I leave to see him for his graduation. And things will start to pick up as far as us at home staying busy this month. Connor starts school, I go back to work, Madre comes for a visit and at the end of July, a family reunion in Roosevelt. OFF WE GO!!!!
