One year done, one year to go...

Our oldest son, Jeremy, left one year ago for Okinawa, Japan. He joined the Marines in October of 2005 and after completing bootcamp and then technical training, he headed out to Okinawa for 2 years. This week marks the halfway point.

I found this photo that we took of him the week before he left for technical training:

To put this year absence into perspective, here's what Elizabeth and Miss T (the cat that just had kittens) looked like this the last time Jeremy saw either of them:

Here's one of Him holding Elizabeth while he was home:

And this is what Elizabeth and Miss T look like today:

A lot changes in a year! Boy we sure miss Jeremy and hope that the next year goes by quickly!

Love on your kids while you can...before you know it they grow up and leave home!
