He celebrated his 30th birthday locked up, and I"ll be celebrating mine soon, though I would rather forget how much older I"m getting. I sent him a card everyday for a week and added extra money to the phone so we could talk more. I really love our calls, but god the money disappears fast.
Anyway he started GED classes, and is on a waiting list for several other classes. I've not been able to find out if they will have a mini graduation for them and let the families come, I know some places do this. But while this may not seem like a big deal to a lot of people, to me it is. It shows me that he really is trying.
I get to go see him next week and take Lily I can't wait, he hasn't seen her in almost 9 months. I don't know how she'll do at the visits but any time together is good for me.
We are a little over 1/4 the way through with the whole thing..5 years, 6 months, 2 weeks and 1 day
