Message from our bear

Last night came with a phone call from our middlest of children. It was good to hear his voice from those thousands of miles away. Although I wasn't home he did leave a message on my phone and he was able to talk to dad, Jesse and Brie . When he was here in July he mentioned a girl that he had his eye on. She is in his unit and would be in Iraq with him. He had talked to her a few times at church, but hadn't gotten up the nerve to ask her on a date. The good news is he finally took the step and she told him she had been hoping he would. Is there love in the air in Baghdad? We'll keep you informed, who knows, maybe we'll have to start planning another wedding.

YIPPEE!!! And then he will HAVE to smile in pictures, right? I seem to remember him saying (while we were getting our family pic taken) that he would not smile in a picutre until he was married...
ANyway, Good for him, taking the plunge and asking a person out is the hardest thing in the world.
