Ryan is leaving soon

Ryan got the news that he has to report to bo*t camp sooner than we thought. He got a phone call yesterday that he will be leaving on August. 18. Wah. Only three weeks and my first chick will leave the nest. I know he needs to go--but I am so not ready. He is excited, though.

Oh, I'm so sorry. I can only imagine how your heart must feel right now. Especially with all that you've got on your plate with the move. The timing doesn't seem great...but, we both know that God's timing is always perfect...even when it doesn't seem like it to us. I will pray that He will comfort you as you send Ryan off. Golly, it's making ME sad!!

Oh my friend--I can only imagine how your mommy heart must feel. I mean, it's not like you're not already having to deal with a whole lot of change in your life! Flip.

Know that I am standing with you and trusting that God would fill you with HIS peace as you go through the next few weeks.

Goodness, I just saw the pics from yesterday. What a stunning part of the country. I have never been to those parts. Actually, haven't seen much of the country at all. Bad! Love the rocks on the beach :)

Hi Karin,
Loved the photos of the kids at the beach." I Heart Faces" theme this week is the beach. I know you are just sitting around twiddling your thumbs, so i thought you might want to enter one of yesterday's pictures. Today is the last day. Glad you are seeing NE's personality...you are right...it is FULL of it:)

I'll be praying for Ryan...that He will prosper in BT.
And I'll be praying for you, His Mama.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart my friend. Don't lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him and He WILL make your paths straight.

Oh sweet friend, my stomach knots for you just thinking about it. I remember the feelings so well...

I am praying for you and your Ryan....and no one knows what its like unless they've been there..

Much love from our home to yours...

Karin, we're so happy to hear you all made it to Boston safely, but I'm so sorry Ryan's leaving sooner than you thought. It must be so hard with the time being so close. We are praying for you and your family and miss you all so much already.

He's leaving earlier than planned? My heart would be in my throat as I'm sure yours is right now. First a huge move and now your oldest is shipping out to boot camp. I can't imagine the stress you're experiencing. I'll say a few extra prayers today.

I love the photos of the east coast beach and trip. So sorry to hear of the moving truck mess and Ryan leaving sooner. I continue to keep you all in my prayers.
