Daddy Flies {book review}

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.

Two of Hadden’s favorite things are getting mail and books so last week he got a special surprise.  We checked the mail one afternoon to find a special package waiting with a new book just for him.

As soon as it arrived, we sat down to read.  The book, Daddy Flies, is about a little girl named Katie.  Katie’s dad tells her that he can’t play because he has to fly that day.  She spends the rest of the book pondering what it means that her dad flies.  She wonders if he’s a bird?  Or a bee?  Or perhaps a superhero?  In the end, Katie realizes that her dad flies a plane as a military pilot.

Hadden was enchanted.  Throughout the book many questions are asked (“Is he a hummingbird whistling from flower to flower?”).  Each time Hadden would giggle and then shout out the answer.  The moment I finished reading, Hadden was already shouting, “More! More!”  While Hadden loved the story, my favorite parts of the book were the darling illustrations.

Daddy Flies a cute book for anyone, but especially fun for military families like ours.  I can see this becoming one of Hadden’s favorite books!

Gratitude.

As we enter the holiday season I can’t help but think back to last year.  One year ago we were preparing for Caleb’s first deployment and also waiting to hear if we’d move in the coming year.  It was kind of a weepy, sensitive time for those reasons and a few other ones as well.

This week I’m thankful that the past year is over.  We survived the deployment!  He got orders to AFIT (a dream assignment for us)!  We moved across the country!  Caleb is home!

And we’ve got one more thing that we’re especially thankful for this year…

Baby #2 arrives May 2016!

Can you tell that Hadden is just a tad excited about this?!  He’s known the secret for weeks and every time we see a baby he begs to hold it!  We’re so excited to see him become a big brother and to meet this new little one!
