Stephen just called me. He had a test for his Master Sergeant stripe today... and passed!!! He had heard that about 90% of people fail it on their first attempt. Then he walked into the classroom and the proctor told him that she gives about 20 tests a week and about 4 people will pass. So the odds were definitely against him. He was worried because he didn't really study since we had Bible school all last week. I am so proud of him!! He can't get the rank until next August or September because he doesn't have enough time in yet. But as soon as he has the time, he's good to go!! He will be a 26-year old Master Sergeant. That is so good!

Anyway, I'm just so proud of him, so I had to post this. I'm at work with Bri on my lap and typing isn't that easy. At least now she can kind of sit up on her own, so I can type with both hands. She has been playing really good by herself for the past two hours, and took a 15 minute nap which helped somewhat. She's probably getting hungry now which means we'll both get a break!

Congrats to Stephen! That is awesome but not surprising with his track record. And congratulations to both of you for raising a baby who can entertain herself for three hours. TEACH ME!
