The little brother

The little brother leaves Tuesday for Basic Training with the Army. He will be heading to Fort Benning, GA (pretty close to home) to get beaten to a pulp. He needs to be whipped into shape after this past year for sure, but I have faith that he will do great and God will be watching over him. If you remember or not, he tried to sign with the Marines over a year ago, they jerked his chain around about leaving 3 times and he finally asked to be released from his contract so he could sign with the Army and get this process finally moving forward. I'm super proud and a little worried, but send your prayers his way!

So we had another going away party (really just dinner with the family) Saturday night. Chris is convinced Basic Training will be a breeze (probably b/c he looks like a skin-head and b/c of his accident back in December, has HUGE scars on his face and head....which he has decided to tell people was from a knife fight.... Um...?) because he is a bigger guy. I think he's going to be quite shocked when he gets there. We'll see!

The Family (with a pug in the corner).

The family to date.

A Ben, a beer & a baby.
He thinks babies are contagious...


  1. Is that why Ben isn't trying to prevent Ava from falling out of his lap??? :)

  2. Yes, that is exactly why... he wouldn't even touch her! Poor Ava...

  3. Ha! Tell Ben to pull it together! That baby needs some cuddles from her uncle! :)
