Go David! and come back when you're done.


Our last two sons to reach adulthood have left our home in a rather undesirable manner. They caused much pain and sadness on their departure.

But yesterday was different- a reason to celebrate!

We drove David to the airport to head to Texas for Basic Training in the Air Force. He wants to follow in his father's footsteps and be an officer in the military.

I am sad to have him leave...but it's the right time. Just looking at the last family picture, he and I joked that he was "too big for the nest" and he remarked that he had stayed so long in the home oven that he was darker than the rest of the blue eyed kids.

With David gone, the house will be cleaner (much cleaner) and quieter and we can't wait till he returns!

Well, he is head and shoulders above the rest! May God bless him on his journey. Great family pictures!

We couldn't be more proud of him! He's come a long way. Do you think the world can handle another Colonel Acly?

He's going to come back a man. How fun for you to see that transformation.
