I'm a Military Blogger

1 month later my lovely care package finally got there, after being delayed over 2 weeks by the Iceland volcano.

The cookies were hard as rocks and the candy was melted, but at least he got to see it (even though it wasn't a surprise anymore).

And they FINALLY put up wi-fi, so I got to video chat for a few minutes. Unfortunately the wireless doesn't penetrate the barracks, he has to use it outside.

We got to web-cam for the first time in months! It's funny how great it is to be able to see each other - even if only for a bit.

I'm glad the package made it (finally!) and he was able to appreciate your effort if not the contents.

Yay he got it!! I'm sure he appreciate all the wonderful (though not so edible) goodies :) The military definitely teaches us to make do with what life throws at us doesn't it?

Webcams are AWESOME! Even if the connection sucks most of the time. And very happy to hear that he got your package!! It was super cute.
