1. Greyer is 3! He turned 3 on February 24. His birthday party was at the Children's Museum of Tacoma. It was very fun and he still talks about his dinosaur cake (that I made!)
2. Greyer is 100% potty trained! No accidents, day OR night! I about had a nervous breakdown for 1 year trying to get him to not be terrified of the potty. I guess you must wait until they are ready. He started on his own 1 week before turning 3. I am a MUCH happier and gracious mother now. :-) The picture below is of him being silly and wearing 7 pairs of underwear :-P
3. Cody is in Afghanistan. Pretty self explanatory. He is well and is happy there. He likes his job and has been staying safe.
4. I'm finishing up a Governent/NFP accounting course this week. I am FORCING myself to not sign up for any more. I guess I'm that much closer to CPA, right? I need a break from classes. I have the degree an additional 2 semesters of accounting under my belt. I'm going to relax and find a job... or something like that.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. a]" style="line-height: 0.5em; ">[a]
2 I will say b]" style="line-height: 0.5em; ">[b] of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-
10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

This past Tuesday Greyer went to the movies for the first time. I am not a movie person and have only been to the movies once in the 10 months we have lived here. It came as a suprise to me, arriving at the theater to see Toy Story in 3-D with my 2.5 year old, that there is a mini amusement park INSIDE the theater. Crazy. I also had to pay a $10 matinee ticket. seriously? A lot has changed since I last went to a matinee. Greyer was thrilled at the whole experience and behaved very well. There was only us and one other family at the 12:15 showing. Greyer did enjoy walking up and down our aisle pushing the arm rests up and down. :-) He's a boy; what do you expect?
Today we are planning on going to the pumpkin farm. Greyer loves fall things-- especially seeing the 'monsers' (monsters). Tomorrow we go to the Rock Ranch ( http://www.therockranch.com/index_2.htm ), owned by the founder of Chic Fil A. 88 and sunny is the forecast for today.
Have a wonderful weekend and Columbus Day, I know we will :-)

Today I am making a final decision whether or not to stay in school. I am worn out from school and feel like I need a break-- I have no ability to concentrate and no motivation to learn right now. Maybe I should take a break for a semester or year and then move on. What do you think?
Greyer found his dragon costume from last year's trick or treating. He insisted to wear the jacket (designed for below freezing temps) and run around our complex.... by the time we got home last night he was so wet from sweat that I thought he would have passed out if he was out there any longer. Looks like we have officially entered the time of dress up and make believe (at least he is pretending to be dragons and animals... :-P ).
We are leaving Georgia in one month. We have decided to live on post at Fort Lewis and save ourselves the headache of looking for housing and the process associated. Pray they offer us fab housing :-)
Other than that not much else is new. The weather is finally starting to break (meaning hitting less than 85).

On a different note, Katie Provencher and I (and Greyer) went to a Married into the Military Bible study group tonight. Our church started doing growth groups and this one is fantastic. It consists of married military couples. It is fantastic to be in fellowship with others who go through the same things. So encouraging to see others face similar obstacles and conquer, continue to love Jesus and their families. God is good and always provides what we need, when we need it.
Tomorrow we have a playgroup in the AM and then I have to get tax work done. I may end up seeing Cody this weekend. :-)
