Jared's send off

Last Thursday, Jared's family invited us over for a dinner to say goodbye to Jared.
His mom and nephew Hudson.
Pawpaw, older brother Jamie, and Canyon.
More grandparents.
Sister-in-law Kaycee and cousin Kyle.
The brat himself and Sahara.
Also there was an aunt, baby cousin, and other brother Jordan.

During half time at the Tech Family Day game, while at Drill this weekend, they showed up to re-enlist.  My stupid phone only caught the first 2 minutes of the 3 minute swear-in.  Also, transferring it to blog cut out more.  Anyway, he is in the first row, second one in from the left.

He got to leave Drill early Sunday morning to get ready to head to basic.  He ate breakfast with us, then he and Sahara made the rounds to say goodbye to other people.  

Maybe we will catch a glimpse of him from time to time on the Fort Sill website or facebook page.  If not, he will be back around the middle of December.  
One last picture taken in Little Rock after dinner at the drop off hotel.  Sahara said there were lots of tears with her and his mom and then him too.  His brother of course made fun of them all. 

He's in the Army now!
