Our time of goodbyes came yet again tonight. The kids and I had to see Kevin off for another deployment to Iraq. In many ways, I really think this one was harder than the last one! We are more aware of what we are about to go through for the next 12-18 months. Yet, we also know how strong we all are and that we will tackle this one just as we did the last one! It's a long road, but one that we are so proud of Kevin for. Busy days and long nights back here on the homefront are about to begin. The hardest part was having to drive away knowing the amount of time before we are back in his arms again.
