Mike is in Guam
Mike got to Guam safe and sound. I still haven't heard from him but he asked his co-worker to email me and tell me he is there. We woke up at 3 AM and got ready and then waited for our babysitter to come. She never showed up. So, we woke the boys up at 4:15 and jetted off to the airport. Since we waited for her for so long, he was really rushed and we didn't really have to time to do anything but say bye. Isaac cried and cried when Mike said goodbye and walked away. Will kept saying, "Daddy needs to come home. He's not going in a plane." When we drove up to the driveway and he saw Mike's red car he started yellling, "Daddy's home!" I had to explain to him that he was still on the plane and would be there for awhile longer and he just left his car home. He keeps asking about him every few minutes. He woke up all night long and kept saying, "Is that daddy?" after every sound. The boys only slept like one hour after we got home and Will refused nap time and Isaac only slept an hour so it was a cranky day for all of us. Anyway, I got the email from his coworker at 4:30 so I think Mike was flying forever! Poor Mike. He should be sleeping. The internet is extremely expensive there so I don't think he will get it. He can get access to computers on base with internet but he will have to do that on his off hours and he works 12 hour days. We only have about four hours that overlap of awake hours (and they aren't all in the same block) so I'm not sure when we will hear from him. Hopefully he will go use his coworkers internet when he wakes up. I really feel bad for Lindsey right now. I have a long list of fun activities to do with the boys (pizza night, crafts, shopping, letters to santa, play group, etc) and I hope that keeps us busy but I still feel like 20 more days is forever. You are the woman, Lindsey.
