Counting the Days

3 1/2 down 1o 1/2 to go before Evan gets home. Every year he takes a trip to hike the Appalachian Trail. I know what you are thinking..."At this time of year?" Yep, he's insane! I don't understand it, but I know he really enjoys it and needs his "adventure" time away. I was second guessing my decision to tell him to go this year with a newborn and a toddler at home, but so far we are doing great...I think because keeping that daily routine has helped the days pass faster and run smoother.

The worst part of his trip is that I never know when or if I will hear from him while he's gone, due to cell phone service in the mountains. I am a worrier and not knowing that he isn't frostbitten, stuck under a boulder or eaten by a mountain lion, makes me a little nervous. So far I have gotten 1 text that says this is the best hiking he's done...beautiful weather and that he misses us. That made me feel better, now I'm just waiting for the next one.

I thought I would upload some pictures from his trip last year just to show you how crazy he really is. How this is enjoyable...I have no idea! Sure hope he's having fun. We are ready for Daddy to be home! this looks pretty nice.......
