Jay has a girlfriend he writes back and forth to. She used to live with her family in Schweinfurt, but has since moved back to the states. She is a sweet seven year old. It's been fun to stay in touch with her and her family. Jay loves reading his letters from her to hear about all the fun she has. In tonight's letter, Jay told her how he used to be in gymnastics, just like she is. I love reading his letter before he sends them. I learn some new things about his childhood each time!

We aren't doing anything special tonight, but hope to this weekend. We have learned not to take our anniversaries for granted since we've missed spending half of them together. We are perfectly content sitting in our chairs next to each other for the night!
Four years..... who would have guessed that we would have accomplished so much and have been to so many places! On our wedding day, I could never have told you where we would be right now! Both of us have worked some great jobs! We have been to some amazing places! We have grown so close, learning lots about each other. Even though it's been hard to be away from our family, spending these four years alone has forced us to create our own foundation. When something challenges us, we have to rely on each other and God to get through it. This has been a great way to start our life together.
Four more years from now.... who knows where we'll be or what we'll be doing. That's the fun part of the Army. You go with the flow and you love it! I can't wait to see what God has in store for Jay and me.
