Telling Eldest

Today was the day that we told Joshua about the big move and surprisingly it went really well. We decided to tell him in the morning time and not in the evening right before bed. Our thinking was that maybe he would have time for it to sink in and ask any questions that he may have.

He actually starting getting excited about some of the things like, not having to where his uniform anymore, speaking German, having on base and off base, and the idea of seeing a lot of new places. I even told him that I will try and request a child sponsor for him that he could send emails to. He also became really happy when I told him we might be driving across the country to see Baba and Grandaddy and then flying to Germany.

I'm sure that in the future there will be some hard times. Like saying goodbye to his friends and family and the idea of leaving certain things behind but right now we are taking it as it comes.
