For the first time...


Well this is my first official blog. I started to create a site last year, but just never really followed through. So, here is to a good start!

Tomorrow, we are leaving for Oceanside. We are going there for a breakfast at the El Camino Country Club, Friday morning in honor of the one and only, Sgt. Robert Riedel!!! If I haven't told you a million times yet, Robert was named the NCO of the Year for the 1 M.E.F. It is a tremendous honor and I am so proud of him. While we are in Oceanside, we are going to get to stay with Jeremy, Shanna, and Haili; Jeremy is stationed there with the Marines Corps. Then on Sunday, we are headed for a 3-day trip to Palm Springs. This time, it is for a luncheon held by the Navy League. I am very excited to see what they do...

At the end of May, we are getting to go to Arlington, VA. This time it is to see if Robert was named the NCO of the Year for the entire Marine Corps. So that will be something to look forward to.

And I know everyone is is Thompson doing?! Well, he is great! We have gotten to go outside and play a lot since we are having beautiful weather. It is incredible to see him grow everyday. It seems like he learns a new word, new expression, or a way to throw a fit everyday! Yes, unfortunately he is definitely showing the lovely signs of the terrible two's. But, I knew it would come.

I will try my best to keep up with posts and add lots of new pictures as often as possible!
