Drum Roll Please...Our Great News!! (Remember not Preggers)

Our Great News....

Casey is outta of The Sandbox!!!  Also known as Afghanistan!!  He told us two weeks ago that he'd be leaving Wednesday rolled around and I texted mom, so do you think he's packed and ready to go...I had actually thought he would leave earlier than Thursday, ya know, its the military and they do funky things.  Well, mom texted back and said, you're right about the military changing their mind...Casey had called earlier that day and told mom that now he thought he'd be leaving Saturday.  Boo Hiss!
Side Note:  Casey had been packed and ready to go the minute they told him he'd be leaving, so he had been living outta his bag for at least a week!
So Saturday rolled around and we didn't hear from him, so I'm thinkin Awesome, he's on a really long flight back to home (not real home, his permanent duty station in Japan).  Got another call on Sunday I think saying he was in some country that starts with a K...I can't remember.  Then Sara, his wife, got an email from the Gunnery Sgt saying he would get to Japan by Wednesday! Woot Woot!
We don't know if that was our time Wednesday or Japan Wednesday, but we heard from him Thursday and he had slept all the way back home, but was home safe and sound.  We are so excited for him to be 'home' and praying that he will get to come Real Home soon!

This is the banner that greeted him in his barracks along with some care packages that family sent.
