Maybe I’m *slightly* biased, but I would have to say we are one-heck-of-a-pretty-dang-super-awesomer-than-average bunch!
I want to give a quick shout-out to anyone joining me here today from the Voice Boks Back to School Social Party 2013 event!
(Not totally interesting unless you happen to blog, but if you do blog go check it out! Win some prizes! Share them with me! Yay free stuff!)
For the party, I’m supposed to do a little intro about my little blog and what it’s all about. For those of you that have been around for awhile, this will not be new information. Unless you haven’t actually been paying attention.
In either case, Hi.
Here’s the My Camo Kids breakdown:
I started this blog before my husband’s second deployment. He’s an infantryman in the U.S. Army, and I don’t think I could be prouder of him if I tried. He spent 2008 in Afghanistan while I manned the home-front with three small kids.
Then he spent 12 months in Iraq for most of 2010 and part of 2011 while I manned the home-front with two big-ish kids, one small kid, and one newborn.
And then he went back for 9 more months in Afghanistan in 2012 while I manned the home-front with…..two big kids, one medium kid, one small kid and one newly-adopted-from-Ukraine-spoke-no-English-and-has-cerebral-palsy kid.
That brings us to five kids and three deployments. And one special needs international adoption. In case you lost count.
At the moment, our happy (but not so little anymore!) family is together again and enjoying it quite a bit. I hesitate to say it’s exactly quiet around here though. With a kid starting HIGHSCHOOL and a kid starting potty training while my husband and I both juggle graduate school schedules (he’s going to be teaching at West Point, I’m going to become a Family Nurse Practitioner) it can get a little hectic! But we are together, and after so much time spent apart in the last 9 years we know that is what matters most!
So, welcome to the blog! Have a look around (I recommend starting with the menu bar at the top!) and thanks for stopping by.
