We all know that Matt is far away but your family wishes you the best birthday, full of love and joy in knowing that Matt is serving our country and that he loves you!!

Kayci talks to Matt frequently. I hear from him every couple of weeks. Kayci and I IM frequently and she shares with me how he is doing. Over the last month, Matt has moved to a new room with only one room mate. He works long hours during the day trying to keep ahead of all the vehicles that need repairs. He does PT - physical training in the evenings. He says that there is so much work to do that he has not had a day off since Christmas. I was trying to understand the living conditions and got a good laugh from him. He is in a room that is about 12X10. There is a cold shower down the hall, the hot shower is a walk from where he is. The "bathroom", really known as the "porta potty" is behind his living quarters. He works in a place that is across from his room - like being across the cul-de-sac. The dining room is further away. He doesn't take the time to eat all the time since he is so busy. He says he is tired all the time and so busy that thinking of home is not a big problem for him. Although, I am sure he has his moments of home sickness.

Getting to a compter is really hard for him because of the lines and time. So he has not gotten emails or seen the blog. He did say that he has pictures to send but has had a hard time getting to the post office to mail them. When he does, I will post pictures.

We are proud of you Matt and pray for your safety. Mom and Dad
