Thank you for visiting my blog today. Originally it was started in 2006 as a way to chronicle our overseas adventure, but it has turned into a place where I share my heart after my husband's untimely death at the age of 40. You can read more about his brief, but fierce battle with a rare cancer on his caring bridge site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/rob_murphy.

St. Patrick's Day Parade on base
The annual St. Patrick's Day parade on base was held despite the rain and cooler temps this year. They shortened the parade route, which ended at the Youth Center, and started the carnival there early. Noah was away on a Boy Scout camp out and Micah was one of the only Cub Scouts that came out to represent the scouts on base. He was thrilled to lead the parade with his good friend, Noelle, and holding the banner. Sarah was starting to feel awful on Friday night but wanted SO BADLY to participate in the parade and carnival since it is our last year here. By the end of the parade she was looking pale and weak, but stayed to dance in a couple of dances during the carnival. As soon as we got her home she passed out and slept for 36 hours straight.
You can see Sarah is starting to feel peekid in these pictures - with her bestie, Hannah and Hannah's sister, Leisha and below with the twins Cormac and Cillian enjoying their green goop.
