Welcome Violet Marie

Greg and Sarah had their sweet baby GIRL (it was a surprise!!) Violet Marie on August 18th!  She is just perfect and James and I flew home to meet her and throw them a baby shower.  Just precious.

Goodbye Grandma

My Grandma Bonnie Jean Dowling passed away this week.  She had been suffering for a long time, but held on to hear of the safe arrival of her second Great-Grandchild, Violet Marie.  We are so sad to lose her, but know that she's with Jesus!  Love you, Grandma, we will miss you.

Steven's Change of Command

Today Steven took command of Bravo Company, 3-69 AR BN, 1st BCT at Ft. Stewart.  We were welcomed by LTC Davenport and the rest of B Co at a nice ceremony this afternoon.  He gave a great speech and is really looking forward to leading Battle Company for the next year or so.  We had a reception afterwards and served pulled pork sandwiches, fruit, drinks and cake to all 150 of his soldiers!  It was a great day!  In addition to his command, I'll be taking over as FRG leader during his time with B co....wish me luck!  They are scheduled to deploy in November for 9 months, so it should be an interesting year for both of us!
