Yesterday Ayden was working so studiously on this puzzle that I had to take some pix:

Here is a pic of the 'calendar' I made~it is a countdown of the weeks we have left until daddy is finished RCMP depot (17.5 currently). Each photo represents a week, and they are all pix of daddy, or pix with daddy in them. Matthew's job is to remove a picture at the end of each week, and Ayden's job is to put the photo in an album to keep it safe. This hangs in their bedroom:

I also want to start a memory chain which has papers on it with 'things we would like to tell daddy about today when he gets home'...once it gets a little longer I'll take some pix of it too. These are some great ideas from some military moms.

Hi Melissa, are you doing the single parent thing right now then? Hard.
We should set up a playdate, if you're open to it.
I know Sterling would love it.
