Of course, before giving up on this lens, we will be taking more photos. I'm just not sure if I see enough of an advantage in the new lens to justify the extra weight and bulk (and $$$.) We'll see.
Allen received orders for Germany today. We are also in the process of decluttering our home, both by getting rid of stuff and hiding it in the crawl space, in order to sell it. So, it sounds like we may actually be moving, and kinda soon.
On another note, when we moved here, because it was considered overseas, Allen received orders for him to move to Alaska. Then, we had to apply for command sponsorship, where I had to take my medical records, and they (no, I don't know who "they" are) had to determine if it was ok for me to move here. Allen's orders already include Ashlyn and me. Is Germany different or has the Army actually streamlined one of their processes? Does anybody know? The only thing that I could figure is that all military medical records are online now, so the hand carrying medical records is no longer necessary. Maybe. Anyway, randomness.
I am leaving you with a picture of Ashlyn, throwing herself on the floor. She does this quite frequently. She did not have a good day today. She hit her head 4 times today, just running into stuff. Both of her parents have been a bit accident-prone at times, so she really had no prayer. Even with bumping her head and throwing herself on the ground, I still think she is so pretty. Your mother should always think you are pretty, even if no one else agrees. And, the sight of Allen with Ashlyn, whether just holding her or Ashlyn running over to Allen to give him kisses, is the most beautiful of all in my eyes.
