A small, family farm in Wisconsin

He’s in the Army Now

Collin joined the Army.  His Mom and Dad were there with him on Sunday during the swearing-in ceremony.  Nikki said it was hard to witness.  I feel her pain.  We had lunch with Collin and Nikki on Friday and I was pretty sad when we said our good byes, and a bit weepy.  He should be in Oklahoma now, in basic training.  It’s comforting to know that his Uncle JD is nearby in the OKC area. 

Collin is our oldest grandson, the 3rd child in a family of 8 children.  Lee and I are fortunate to have been able to spend lots of time with Collin while he was growing up.  He was my horse show buddy and did lots of horsey activities with me.  I know he has many fond memories of our time spent at horse shows and events.

Lee also has enjoyed a good relationship with Collin, who loved to help Lee with chores and farm work, and followed him around daily when he was here with us. 

We’re really going to miss him, but we know he’ll be coming home on leave.  He’ll have a week or two to come home after basic training and before he heads to further training in Augusta.

We send him off with our love, respect, and thanks.
