The past couple weeks I have been super busy making signs, and buckeyes and packing and driving to SC.
Oh well because my little brother became a Marine last Friday. I am one very very proud sister.
Seriously one of the proudest moments of my life so far. It is amazing how far he has come, and the obstacles he has overcome to get where he is today.
I did make a new dip over the weekend, but in my rush to get it made and do all the other things for Austin's party, I forgot to take pictures (Bad food blogger, bad!) But never fear, I bought ingredients to make it again. So I will make it tonight or tomorrow and then share soon, but not until June (btw- how the heck is it June?!).
My brother has 5 more days of leave and I intend to spend it with him before he goes to NC for more training. We are going to Kings Dominion, and hopefully lots of hanging out on the deck talking and hearing more stories from boot camp. I had to come home on Sunday, and I wont see him til tomorrow night, and this is the first time since I moved out of my parent's house that I wish I was living at home again.
Thank you to everyone who said prayers for him throughout this time. I know I didn't really keep anyone updated, but mainly because his letters never updated me! He saved it all for when he was in person!
Enjoy some pics from the weekend.
Waiting at 5:30 am to watch them run - with all my signs
First seeing my brother - I think he is laughing at me cuz I am sobbing. :-D
So grown up
My "little" Bro
Showing us his uniform
He wore his spiffy dress blues to church
Austin and his girlfriend Ariella, I love her. Best thing that ever happened to him.
Celebrating his 21st birthday (a month late!)
