Matt Deployment Gathering

 We had Matt's deployment gathering and appreciation lunch yesterday.  Thank you so much to all our friends and family for showing your support and sharing your loving and encouraging words. As for the three of us, this next year is going to be different than the years in the past, but we will still have the love that nothing can separate.   Matt deploys July 8 to Kosovo and Caroline and I are going to miss him greatly!  This past week all the emotions and feelings have finally set in for both of us.  Lots of prayer will be filling the Ritchie home.

Father's Day

We had a great Father's Day!  Matt is a wonderful Daddy!  There is not a day that goes by that he does not show his love, support, and laughter with Caroline.  WE LOVE HIM!  Caroline was beyond excited to give him the gift she made for him at school this year.  I am really surprised she did not tell him in advance because that is all she talked about for a week...

 Caroline's Dad Rocks rock she made at SCDC.  She is so proud of her rock!

Caroline's BIG Girl Bed

 We made the conversion from the crib to the BIG girl bed!  We were a little big hesitant since Caroline was still enjoying her crib, but she needed to upgrade.  Matt and Miles converted the crib to the bed this week and Caroline has been snoozing and snoring ever since.  I went bed set shopping on Thursday and was thrilled with the set I was able to find.  It matched her room perfect!  We are so happy to see her grown into a happy and healthy toddler!
