Look who came home…
Sabu was soooooooo happy.
Grow a Solider and They Multiply
She was accompanied by her darling twin + THREE MORE…
We send two to college and FIVE come back to our house.
I’d like to write about how they were a little homesick and really wanted to see their family…
But that would be a lie.
Roger Leroy just wanted to pick up her bike and it was “mandatory” that they all accompany her.
They were released early on Saturday and announced they were coming home with a few “battle buddies.”
After a few minutes of dog bonding, we all headed to a local Mexican restaurant for dinner.
Um, yeah – Scary Baby and her friend love to be with all the Soldiers and insisted on posing in this picture.
Next, we called the family we were going to have dessert with and asked if they would mind if there were NINE of us instead of three.
No problem. We showed up with a big chocolate cake from Costco and enjoyed homemade ice cream compliments of the Sommer family.
It was nice to reunite the girls with Jenna a.k.a Bon-Bon who enlisted the same day they did but is a senior in high school.
Jenna went to Basic Training this summer and they are all looking forward to being cadets together at college next Fall.
We had to have a group picture and assured them that all this picture-taking nonsense would stop in a few weeks. “The New” will eventually wear off and we won’t take a picture every time they come home.
They are a nice looking bunch, don’t you think?
And note that upper right hand shelf in the Sommer’s home…yes, that’s right…they have THREE Soldiers in their house now. Coast Guard, Army and Army National Guard.
We’re proud to know them. 😉
What did you do this weekend?
