I just realized last night that Bree is about the same age Carly was when Paul left for Japan. This photo which is a whole lot like the photo below it is what reminded me. It's the same PJ's and the same dad, but totally different circumstances. I'm not happy to leave our friends here, but I'm really glad that we'll be back in our natural habitat (ie on a base) for a little while before he deploys again, to get re-acclimated to how things are in normal (for us) life. Because judging from how just looking at these two photos is affecting me, I'm not sure how well I'd do if we had to send him off right now.
