On vacation in TX last summer.
I wish I had something to post. I wish I'd gotten his address or a phone call or something. But I've got nothing. It's hard not to think about last summer. Last summer we all went on vacation to TX. This summer I took a few of the kids by myself. Last summer, we got in a big fight before family camp and he didn't go with us. This summer, I wish so much that I would've let whatever it was we were fighting about go so that he would've come to camp. Last summer, he really didn't work enough hours at his fast food job. This summer, I'm sure he's got no regrets about that decision.
For the past two days we've been watching a show called Surviving the Cut on Netflix. I think for whatever reason, we all feel closer to him when we watch it. It blows my mind to see what the soldiers go through and I wonder if he is doing anything like the guys on the show are doing, and if he's scared, and if the people are nice, and if he's happy, and how the food is, and how the running is going, and if he's worried about anything . . . . .
