Happy Birthday, Nathan!
Tuesday night we all went to an awards banquet at the squadron (Anna's take on the evening: too long, and she didn't get enough dessert), and Nathan was promoted to cadet staff sergeant. This was a bigger promotion than his previous ones, as he had to pass some special tests. He is really enjoying CAP.
What a change from 15 years ago, when I was in my (shared) room at the Air Force Academy hospital, wondering how I could ever possibly take are of this new baby I had just delivered! Bob couldn't even stay with me, so I felt very alone (although I could not just dwell on my thoughts in solitude and silence because my roommate, who had just had her 3rd baby, told me she didn't sleep well in hospitals, so she just kept the TV on all night. Okay . . .) We are looking forward to seeing what the Lord has planned for Nathan's life! He is such a blessing to our family!
