( Ok the kid drives me crazy with his gun obsession, but this was the only picture I got that you can see his backpack etc)
With Ben's departure to E. Timor coming up rapidly(11 days), his gear is starting to come out of the many, many rubbermaids it was stored in. Time to get things washed and new patches put on and all that fun stuff. And I must say, that Connor is in heaven!
If any of our boys joined the military, I think it would be Connor. He told me yesterday that,"I want to join the Navy and fly their planes. And if I have a backseat Mom, I will give you a ride!" He loves wearing all of Ben's covers ( hats), his dog tags, his camel back, his backpack, his medals. Anything that he can get his hands on.
Once he saw Ben getting his stuff on, he told me he had to go and get his "army suit" on. He came down in head to toe camo. Then proceeded to put on a variety of different things. He then ran happily off to the park in all his gear. His friend Keegan, came over and saw him, and so rushed home to his house to get his army suit on. Unfortunatley I didn't get a picture of them together but it was cute.
Ivan has now decided that he needs one of the hats and is not an "army guy" " I is a happy guy."
Cute little boys!
