Jackson and Payton are good friends and get along so well! Payton is a sweet little baby and Jackson is such a big helper. Nate and I are so lucky to have such wonderful boys. Being sealed to each other and to the boys was the most wonderful experience. It was the best day of my life and I'll never forget how sweet it was.
Nate called yesterday! He had just finished his big "excursion." They spent 6 days and 5 nights "playing" war. He said that it was grueling but he learned so much and he actually did enjoy it. It is hard for me to hear about the things that he goes through, but it makes me so proud of him to know that he is so brave. Joining the National Guard has been a really great thing for him. It has been a huge sacrifice to be apart, but there have been so many positive changes in all of us.
Nate graduates on Friday the 8th and the next day he will fly out to California. We won't know for a while when we can go out there and be with him, but hopefully it'll be soon. We are ready to get out of the snow and see the ocean!!
