Yay, Yay, Yay!!!

So, a quick update! Jason has informed me that rumor has it that his unit will be leaving Iraq by the end of August, and that he will be stepping foot back on our American soil, at our base, no later than SEPTEMBER 5th!!! I am trying not to get too excited, but...oh...too late, I'm SO excited! Now I know that the military is infamous for changing things at any time, but usually it stays close to what they say. My mom and I are going back to look for a rental house (or condo or apartment...whatever God puts in our path) on July 31st and will stay until August 3rd. If y'all don't mind too much, maybe pray that we will find a place quickly, and that everything will go smoothly, oh, and that Jason will be back by the time they are talking about. Tentatively, my parents and I will be moving us back the weekend of August 18th, so that I will have time to set up house before Jason gets home. That way, he can just be happy about being home and not have to worry with anything:) It's getting much closer! A little over 3 months to go, we're almost half way!!!

AND...I just want to say thank you to all of you that have been continually praying for and keeping up with us. It really does mean the world to me. Every single one of you have touched my life. Y'ALL ARE FABULOUS!!!

Oh, I'm praying, praying, praying! I will continue to pray. You know, I hope, through your Mom, that your family just seems to stay on my heart. God knows why, I just pray.

Oh that would be wonderful if he got to come home by the beginning of September. I will be praying that he will be able to.

I would be excited! At least by getting a home ready before he gets home will keep you busy. That would be a wonderful thing for him to come home too.
