Today we found out, Josh will be going to Bahrain in 2-3 weeks. He will be gone for 6 months. We don't know the exact date yet, but it will be soon. This will be the first deployment on my own, with all 4, no family, no helpers. Carson said he doesn't want Josh to leave, but he will help be the man of the house. Cooper was quiet about it, just taking it all in. Emma doesn't really understand. She thinks he will just be at work and then come home after. Its going to be difficult on the kids. He just got back from Iraq in June. Keep us in your prayers!
