Deployed Today

Hey, all:

Dev loaded onto a bus at 11:45 this morning to go to Iraq. He had about 3 hours of family time before leaving, which was basically just us hanging out at the Company. There were a few tears, of course, but he left in good spirits.

I didn't actually stick around for the goodbye ceremony or watch the buses load and leave. I figured those would make me lose it and I didn't want to upset the kids. The next year will be confusing enough for them, I think, they don't need to see Mommy have a nutty. (And that's a perfectly good phrase, Dev. It describes the event rather well, I think.)
