Home Sweet Home

3,000 miles and 45 days later...

They always say, "home is where the heart is". There is something so profound and so real about those words. We've had an amazing adventure for the past 6 weeks filled with fun, laughter, and love. I feel blessed to have people in my life that encourage and strengthen me, who care about my children, and who are willing to go through this long journey with me. People have said, "I don't know how you do it, how you can handle the separation from your husband". My answer has always been that I'm surrounded by people who love me and people who genuinely care about my family. Thank you to all! Thank you for being there when I've needed it the most! 

We are back home...

It is great to be home and have a sense of normalcy again. Kennedy is back at school and Landon had his very first day today. It is so amazing to watch their happiness and watch their little lives transform. They make each new day unique and fresh!

Home sweet home

 Thank you Meaghan for being with us in Florida while we make this transition back home. Your an awesome sis! 

Daddy we love you and can't wait to have you HOME!

Hi Samantha,
So glad to hear you made it safe and sound.
I know, without a doubt, I can speak for all the family, YOU and the children have been such a blessing to all of us. We love be able to fill in when Jared is serving our country and keeping us all safe.

One of my favorite sayings;
"THE LOVE OF A FAMILY,SHELTERS LIKE A TREE".

Love You Sam, Your the best!
Lauren
