Battalion Fun Day

Army fun days. Mandatory for Soldiers, optional for their family members. Since being at Fort Stewart, there have been three, Lucas and I have gone to two. It's a chance for families to get together and mingle. I have to be honest, I don't do much mingling, simply because my eyes are always on Lucas. I know he is in a safe environment and if I can't get to him, another parent will...but I am sure my fellow mom's can agree-I am not comfortable relying on other people to watch my child just so I can chit-chat. I probably need to break loose a little and branch out, but I'm having a hard time doing so. So far, I have yet to make any real connections with fellow Army Wives/Mothers. Maybe they all feel the same way I do? Who knows.
Anyway, it's still fun to watch kiddo run around, play and interact with the other kids. There was one little girl there that decided to push him down a mound of mulch, but Brian and I both let out a hollar for that one! She didn't mess with him again. Her older brother, or so I assume, was good with him and even told her "he's on our team", but she wasn't having any of it. Some kids.
I did meet most of the guys in Brian's company, although I couldn't tell you names for anything. Nice to see who he works along side of every day.

 He loves to drive :)
