Pudding and Daddy

This was taken on Memorial Day this year, the day Spectrummy Daddy returned from his first trip to Afghanistan.  She missed him more than she is able to express, and clung on to his hand all day long.  He leaves again in a week for Kabul (a mercifully short trip), fingers crossed it goes easily for her (and therefore the rest of us).  Thinking of all the military and government workers who have to leave their families for much longer, especially those with special needs children, whose worlds are rocked so much.

Happy Wordless Wednesday everyone!
