Off to Iraq!

A week ago Saturday Ben left for Iraq.  He has spent the week in Kuwait doing some training then he is off to Iraq.  Here are a few pictures of us the morning he left.  We had to meet up with his unit on base at 1:30 am.  We hung around until about 5:00 am when they loaded them all up on buses to take them to the airforce base.  It was a long sad morning!
Kai was wide awake and really hyper about 3am!
