VTC and Birthday Cake
Yesterday was a neat day. The unit set up a Video Teleconference with the Lincoln Armory for Mother's Day, and I was lucky enough to be one of the soldiers that got to participate. I got 10 minutes to talk with Erika and Benjamin. I could see them great, but they said that they had a little bit of a hard time seeing me. There was a little bit of a delay, but overall it was very, very cool. The 10 minutes went by really fast, but being able to talk and see them was well worth it. Talking on the phone is great but being live is so much better. I really hope that I get another chance to do it again. Benjamin waved goodbye at me and was a good boy the whole time. At one point he tried to crawl off the table but mommy was there to grab him. It definitely made Monday easier to deal with and my spirits have definitely been lifted. Here is a picture from Ben's birthday party of him enjoying some cake.
