A group of soldiers who worked with my husband in Enduring Base Sharana, Afghanistan, have a regular pizza night. SFC Cale Hepler is the host for this regular tradition, and sent me these pictures and this story:

I’ve needed to go to the commissary for several weeks now, but have put it off or things have gotten in the way or I’ve just not had time. And there I sat, three days before a planned trip to the commissary, but out of dishwasher detergent.
I grew up in a family of six. Other than my mom, we were all big milk drinkers. Our household went through a gallon of milk every day.
When my mom baked, she never used the milk out of our gallons – she always used canned “evaporated milk.” It’s how I grew up baking.
I grew up LOVING the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. My favorite one, I think, is Farmer Boy. Farmer Boy gives us a glimpse of Laura’s future husband, Almanzo, and his life on a farm in upstate New York. Whenever I read it, I always thought about how much I would love that life. It was just this picture perfect ideal in my mind.
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of August 17th. We pick my husband up tonight at the airport and he is home to stay! From now on, my menus will be for our entire family! As far as desserts go, this week I will be making Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies for my husband, and a batch of Hershey’s Mini-Kisses cookies for Kaylee’s school lunch. I also have a big batch of pears from a friend at church, so I’m going to attempt a Pear Tart, and will hopefully be posting that recipe soon!Pin It

Since he’s been there, the United States economy began its decline. Jobs in Gregg’s market have been in serious decline and the 8000 mile separation seemed interminable. A contract end date would approach, no jobs would pop up, so Gregg would be forced to sign another contract and stay a few more months, and it would cycle all over again.
Johnathan turned three in May. As I post this, it’s August 12th, and we finally see an end.
