Moments In Life...

Well...He came home like this.

The Lance Corporal asked Mom to give him a "War-Hawk". Left home a week later looking like this to go back to LeJeune to report in on Thursday.

His dad hung out in Jacksonville until the Marines were released midafternoon for another 72 hour leave/liberty.

Got a phone pic on their way back to see that he was returning looking like This!!

Seems he had to remover his cover (hat) for inspection and the leader of his group grabbed him afterwards and took him to his room and shaved his head! (busted!) Kurt found out that was why all the Marines were returning to their rooms but Justin was nowhere to be seen. Un-oh. (No trouble...just shaved) :-) All good fun. War hawks just aren't regulation!

A lovely day for Justin's brief stay.

Justin and his padawan... Woobie... (Woobie's favorite person in the whole world)
Salute...First Class Rob Roy.

Love that Marine...

Hey, where was this guy...? Kam was already at church. He has to go in early because he is on Worship Team for Youth. So I'll just stick one in of him!! Can't leave out Captain Cold...

Mom, if you take one more picture.....!!!!!!!

Both of these...my two oldest....have dimples...OH Those Dimples!!! Wish Justin was showing his.

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck

Family Is Everything.

Hello Julie,

Thank you so much for stopping by this morning and leaving me such an encouraging comment. I'm always blessed when people can understand what I'm trying to say!

I'm sorry...I was thinking I'd left you a comment posted here yesterday. I wanted to thank you for sharing such precious family times with us! I love the picture of Kat and Justin! She's a beautiful girl and her love for her brother shines through.

Hope you have a wonderful day today! Praying for you. I'm off to the dentist shortly! Please pray for me. :)

Julie, I'm sure I don't have to tell you this, but you have a very handsome son. I'm sure you're proud of him. God bless him for all he does, and God bless you for raising such a fine young man!
