When my husband was in Iraq, my son and I made a scrapbook for him. I made a few pages for each month he was gone that way he could see what happened in his son's life. I also had my son (who was 2 1/2 at the time) take a few pictures with a disposable camera. I got a small scrapbook and titled it "Through the eyes of Jeremy". He colored and decorated the pages and I attached the pictures. My husband loved it. Another thing I did was make a small scrapbook of pictures of daddy and son. There will be a lot of things you can do with the 10 year old but not a whole lot with the 8 month old. Although, my son started painting at 9 or 10 months. You could have your 8 month old paint a page as the background. Good Luck!

My ex was in Iraq for a year, and I hooked my son (now 10) up with an e-mail account so he could stay in touch with his dad.
