Rick and Jessica went to Jeff's graduation at Fort Benning yesterday. They were the only two there to support him. That was sad. We thought people from Jacksonville would be there since he spent over four years in Jax.

Jeff had told us he didn't have time off before going to tech school, but it turns out he does. The guy from Jacksonville knew this and was planning on Jeff staying with him, but no arrangements were made for him to get there. So Rick and Jessica drove him to Jax which was about four hours and then they had another five hour drive to our house. If we had known he had time off, we would have made arrangements, but we plan to be gone this weekend. I don't know if it's going to happen now, though, because of the tropical storm moving in. He also arranged to leave out of Jacksonville and that can't be changed. But maybe he could have stayed a few days here and then a few days there.

Jeff heads to Texas in ten days and we'll find out more about what happens after that later and keep everyone posted. Here are a few pictures.
