My little brother is growing up!

Yesterday morning, at 3:43am (specifically, according to my mom), my little brother was picked up by his Army recruiter and taken to the airport to fly out for his BCT (Basic Combat Training).  He will be stationed at Fort Jackson, South Carolina for the next (at least) 10 weeks.  His return date is said to be September 18, 2012.

It's a BIG change for him!  He's never been away from home for more than a couple weeks, and even then he's always had family with him.  With this adventure, he is on his own.  I'm worried about him, of course, but I'm sure he'll be fine. :)

I am currently brainstorming ways to save enough money so that I may fly to the east coast for his graduation.  Maybe this will be the kick in the butt patootie I need to start putting stuff up on Esty?!

The night before he left, Sunday, the whole fam-dam-ily (and a couple in-laws! Love!) went out to dinner at one of our favorite establishments - Red Robin!  Maybe not so "unique," but yummy nonetheless! It was one of the two things requested by my brother for before he was "shipped out."

Good luck Bryce!  Be good while you're there!  We'll see you in a couple months!
