Following the D'

Well, it left Washington, D. C. on yesterday and is in Germany right now! I know I have quiet a ways to go, but I am excited. Life is already busy, so I figured the waiting would not be too bad, but I am so ready to bring them HOME NOW!!! I'm excited, I am mailing out their care packages tomorrow!
