We took Caroline to get her official Military ID card this afternoon. Turning ten is a celebratory occasion for any kid, but to a military brat, turning ten means it’s time to get your own ID card.
It’s a pretty big deal.
She has been waiting for this day for a very long time.
We bought her a little holder for her ID card, in hopes that she won’t misplace, or even worse, lose it.
And then we celebrated with Starbucks. Because every milestone in a young person’s life should be capped off with a cup of hot chocolate.
In other news, it’s been a busy few days, which explains my absence. Hopefully I’ll be back to blogging on the regular, but that depends entirely on whether or not I can conjure up any worthwhile content. Wish me luck!
Also, we had a really fun time at Great Wolf Lodge this weekend. We faced a few bumps in the road, as usual, but in the end, we all had a good time. It was definitely a fun (and different) way to celebrate Caroline’s birthday. I took plenty of pictures, but unfortunately I’m not very happy with them. I think it’s safe to say that action shots are not my forte.
Maybe I’ll share a few, anyway.
Aside from a killer cold Craig brought home with him, which he so kindly shared with me, R&R has been enjoyable. Craig actually has to go to a local Air Force Base tomorrow and thursday to take part in a class (it’s kind of a long story why he has to do it during R&R, but that’s sort of the way the military works) and then he’ll have a few days to rest and relax before heading back overseas next week.
Time flies when you’re having fun.
And blowing your nose 32 times per hour!
