Counting Down


The girls are just old enough to understand that Daddy is going to be gone for a long time and still to young to grasp what 40(ish) days looks like.  We are still working on yesterday, today, tomorrow, weeks, months... we did figured out the seasons though :)

To make it a little easier Makenna and I made this chain to count down to Daddy's expected homecoming.  Why didn't I think of this sooner?  It has really been helping.

I think the chain has taken a lot of stress out of this deployment from Makenna and Claire.  At breakfast we take turns ripping off a loop and talk about how many days left...
