The heat must be getting to my brain, because I voluntarily extended my enlistment in the Nebraska National Guard on Saturday. This is a picture of my commander, CPT Lorenz, sweating, oops I mean swearing, me in. The oath is as follows: I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the State of Nebraska against all enemies foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegience to the same, and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the Govenor of Nebrask and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to law and regulations. So help me God. I've said the oath before, but it definitely carries more meaning when I am actually doing my part to defend our great country.
Benjamin got his first semi-black eye. I guess there was some sort of an accident with some tupperware. If he is anything like his dad he will have lots more cuts and bruises where that came from. Here is a recent picture of him playing with a block. The report I got was that he carried this block around all day in his mouth.
