Leaving...On a Jet Plane...


Text messages sent from my boyz to Uncle Dan last night:

"Hi Uncle Dan.  It's Eldest.  Hope you do awesome in the Army.  See ya at Christmas.  Love your favorite nephew."

"Hi Dan.  This is Baby.  You are my favorite uncle.  Do good in the Army."

"Good luck. Love, Middle."

"Thanks boys!  Love you all.  Uncle Dan"

He's leaving today.

Your boys are too sweet. I'm sure this is a hard time for you all. Best of luck to your brother!

Oh, and I found your blog on SITS :)

Y'all have such a great family. Is this your boyz-sitting bro?

I can't take it. It is so sad. Your mom is a much better mom than I could ever be. I think I would have to break my son's legs before I could let him go.

I love "Hope you do Awesome in the Army."

My son is only 2 and he knows when his Uncle Steve is missing. My brother is in the Canadian army and he signed up for a tour in Afghan. It sickens me that he's only 20 and is going there. All you have to do is keep praying.

awwwww. Sad.

Saying a prayer for him, and a great big one for your mom! :) You must be so proud. Too bad pride doesn't outweigh worry, but maybe it should.

My prayers are with your family and your brother. You must be so proud and so scared all at the same time.What an awesome gift he's giving to his Country.
