Christopher left just a few hours ago and I already miss him. Before he left we sat down with Isabell to explain to her that Daddy had to be away for a few weeks (8+) and that we would be able to talk on the phone and see each other on the computer but no kisses goodnight for awhile. He told her to be a good girl for Mommy and to not grow too fast. I am guessing that she will be walking by the time he gets home and will probably have a few new words in her vocabulary too. At this time, we aren't sure if we are going to fly to see him, we are looking into getting some frequent flier miles donated since the price of tickets is out of this world, even for just 1 person! so for now, we wait and continue to pray! We aren't in control of this journey, we have been reminded of that many times! Please pray for safe travels for Christopher and for patience on my end here!!!
