Brian is able to stay with us on the weekends during April and the first half of May. He is in M.I. training at Ft. Huachuca, in Sierra Vista, AZ, about 75 or so miles away. Since I have not seen him for nearly 3 years, I find myself just staring at his face. He's such a man now, deep voice and beard. Where did that little boy go who would 'borrow' flowers from the neighbor's yard and bring them to me?

Ok, made me tear up...he's very, very handsome! Mom and Dad are very proud I'm sure!!
They go in a boy and come out a man. Barb, I know you are enjoying every moment of this precious time...I did the same thing with my son when he came home out of boot camp...I still just sit looking in amazement at how he has matured into a man...but at the same time I still see that litte boy in my!
Another BIG Blessing in your life these days!!!!

My son is in the army...a Captain at Ft. Bragg. I got so choked up when I see one of our wonderful men or women in uniform ready to serve us/our country. Last night I posted a blogged prayer for our precious men and women in the service! God Bless BRIAN! My prayers are with him!
