Well- I finished my Military Life Survey. It was interesting to say the least. I was glad to give my input but wish sometimes they would have more choices for answers. I left comments for them about older children of the deployed. Everything in the Air Force for supporting kids through deployment is geared for really young kids. I find it harder for them now when they are older rather then when they were little. It seems a little unbalanced as far as support goes in that area. My kids don't watch Sesame Street or Mr Po, nor do they use coloring books and those are what they have for kids to deal with deployments. The only older age thing is a writing kit that I have found.
We are signed up for the new DePLAYment and have been using that. So far we have gone to "Walking with the Dinosaurs" for free and are signed up to go to a wildlife center next month for free. They had "Star Wars" in concert as well but that was the day of my incentive flight and I was SO not going to miss that.
But- I am so appreciative of all the progress support has gone. I know that there is so much more support these days than there ever was for past wars.
I wanted to say a big THANKS to
