Military Update

 My beautiful daughter was whisked off to the ROTC ball by her handsome soldier. Her best friend has become her stylist and always does a wonderful job! Genevieve chose the dress, and did Julia's hair, makeup and nails. All I had to do was hem the gown.


 Who needs a horse-drawn carriage when you have a truck?!


The roses from Fred look lovely on my EPP table topper.
 

Pete is doing great in Recon training. To give you an idea of how intense this training is, the class has gone from 84 students to about 30 in just the first two weeks. Some drop on request when they realize the job is not for them, but many are unable to pass the qualifying tests along the way. He's eating 4,000 calories a day and losing weight. The best news is that he will have Friday off (Good Friday) and my husband will be in San Diego on business this week. They will get to spend the whole day together! I can't tell you how happy that makes me.


OOH RAH!
