I just got off the phone with heath…He is just so precious! I really am the luckiest girl in the world to have such a fabulous husband! He is starting to get into a good routine, and has moved into the barracks close to his trailer-office. This will help him get into a routine and get better adjusted. It was strangely humid there the other day but mostly stays at a dry 120-130 degrees.

I have wanted to post about his great farewell gatherings but have been overwhelmed with all that has been going on and have been afraid I wouldn’t be able to do a quick post and give justice to how amazing our friends are and how great our time was before Heath left. So I thought I would post a little at a time so this is not new straight off the press. Think of it like old-fashioned mail, it takes a while to develop the pictures, hand write the letter, and send it snail mail. It is still always good to hear what is going on.

My multi-talented husband has picked up the art of sushi making and it is the best sushi ever… everyone loves it…well almost everyone! So before he left for Kuwait he thought he would make sushi for everyone as kind of a last hurrah type thing. (Little did he know we all had something huge up our sleeves, none-the-less we still humored him and let him treat us to his delicious cooking) It was such a wonderful time. I laughed so hard all night, that even after everyone left we were so wound up and kept saying over and over what wonderful friends we have.

Here are a few highlights from the night.

Jess has tried sushi before and not been a fan. She toughed it out and tried Heath’s; not even the soy paper, no fish, no crab, no seaweed roll did much for her. But her husband Jake still smiles as he watches her choke it down. They are so cute!

More to come later…

Sounds like things have calmed down a little for you. Yes, sushi night was fun. Thanks for the invite. Give us a call. We'd like to go out for dinner, movie or something sometime. That's if you're not busy or have other plans.

Tam, Nyoka & baby
