These days.

These days it is has been cloudy and rainy more often than not.

These days things seem to go by in a blink of an eye.  Time is moving quickly.  Each day faster than the last.  Since becoming a family of 4 over a year ago time has sped up and I finally know what everyone meant when they said "it goes quickly, so enjoy it".  I scoffed then, pretended like I knew what they were talking about... but I had no idea what I was in for.

These days are full of gymnastics classes, speech therapy appointments, doctors appointments, trips to and from Kansas City and more errands than I ever dreamed possible.

These days are busy with family and friends and making countless new memories for our memory banks.  We are not taking one single second for granted.

These days are filled with vacuuming, sweeping, picking up five thousand toys five thousand times a day, loading the dishwasher, staying behind on laundry and filling up the dogs food bowl.

These days are filled slowly counting numbers, identifying colors, answering "what's that" every minute of every day, showing how to use scissors, taking stickers off of paper and impromptu dance parties.

These days are filled hosting playdates for new friends, trying new restaurants downtown, checking out new playgrounds and parks, learning back ways into the new neighborhood and joining new church groups and activities.

These days seem to roll smoothly and we are hands down enjoying these days.

But I'm also still trying to find my place in this new chapter.  I've always identified this blog as one written from a military spouse perspective.  However... since Rob transitioned out earlier this year, I'm no longer a military spouse.  So where does that leave this blog?  A lifestyle blog?  A parenting blog?  A whatever I want to blog about blog?  Who knows.  The name will stay the same.  After all... Somewhere Over the Camo makes PERFECT sense.  This is life, somewhere over the camo.. but for now the identity is somewhere in limbo.

So when Jen approached me to host the Military Spouse Appreciation Day link-up with her again this year, I briefly hesitated before saying yes.  I may not be a military spouse, but y'all... I have and always will have so much dang respect for all of YOU that currently are... and I love bringing spouses together.  So you should join us next Friday, May 12th for our annual Military Spouse Appreciation Day Link-Up.  You can find the questions over here on Jen's blog.  Come back next Friday, add your link and find some new blogs to follow.  I am honored to host all of you wonderful ladies!
