Seasons of Life

Yesterday, my little brother left for 12 weeks of US Army boot camp. 

I'm still sitting here today wondering how that is even possible. It seems like just yesterday he was the baby that I loved to tickle until he couldn't breathe. The baby who hammed it up for the camera from the time he was 6 months old. The baby that I loved to "mother". And before long, he was the little boy that loved fish and frogs and Pop-Pop's truck. We soon fought, argued, and generally annoyed each other endlessly. But somewhere along the way something changed. And we became friends. 

Funny how that happens. 

Now he's the young man that everyone loves to be around. The young man with a drive and determination most people can only wish for. The young man with a sense of duty and honor that can only be admired. 

We will miss him for this season. But we are so proud of the man he has become. 

Love you little bro.
