Family anchors us in the midst of the craziness. I'm truly thankful for family walks on spring nights. One recent night, much to the humor of the males in the family, Arielle proved her hatred of snakes.
Another favorite activity is bike riding.....our weather has been 70's and low 80's - perfect for getting outside.
Lurking in the back of my mind during these idyllic family moments is thankfulness Michael is home and won't deploy again, the awareness our life will drastically change in four months and the awareness Arielle will be leaving home in three months.
I blinked and we flew into a new season of life.....from nine at home to three chicks in the nest, from a young Air Force family to retiring.....more adventures await.
