The Whirlwind

It's that time again. We try to prepare. We brace the girls. We support each other. We gather important paperwork. We try to squeeze as many magical moments as we possibly can out of the very few we have left. We have moments where we throw up our hands in resignation. We cry. We laugh. We make sure everyone feels loved. We pack. We unpack. We repack again. We make checklists. We hope for the best. We prepare for the worst. We know nothing else. This is our life as a military family. We soldier on.
