Technically week 13 is this week and should be on here but since I'm currently suffering from strep throat, it'll have to wait.

our military kids

They say military children are like dandelions. They can put down roots almost anywhere. They are impossible to destroy. They adapt easily and can survive nearly anywhere. Military children bloom everywhere the wind carries them and they stand ready to fly into breezes to take them into new adventures, new lands and new friends.

"April is the Month of the Military Child. This awareness month was established to underscore the important role children play in the Armed Forces community. There are approximately 2 million military children, ranging in ages from newborn to 18 years old; 1.3 million military children are school-aged. Care of military children sustains our fighting force, and strengthens the health, security, and safety of our nation's families and communities."

I will always believe Military kids are some of the strongest as they come. Of course other kids have parents who are gone a lot for work but they more than likely aren't packing up and moving every 3 years. Sometimes I look at our girls and wonder if they would resent us if Mike stayed in. We would have at least 4 more moves. I know some kids love it and some kids hate it. And it always interests me to hear the experiences of Military kids that are now fully grown. It's fun when Em has friends over and we talk about where everyone was born, where they've lived, where they are going.

Em had just turned 5 when we moved away from her first real Military friend. This summer though a lot of her friends are moving and I'm not sure if I'm emotionally prepared for it. Because so are our friends.
This lifestyle is hard but it's also amazing to watch our resilient Military children. If you know or have a Military child remind them of just how amazing they are.
