So I thought I'd start with a couple pictures of Daniel's ranger challenge competition last weekend. Turns out they beat the other teams by more than 2 hours... they're kind of a big deal.
This weekend the army took him away from me again, and he ran off into the woods with his army friends for a field training exercise.
I don't have any real pictures, but I think these can kind of portray how painful it was...
I'm pretty sure we studied 400 hours...
I got a new calling in church teaching the 16-17 year-old girls. It's fun, but takes a lot more time than teaching the 6-year-olds... Daniel is still stuck with them, but he secretly loves it :) Ok so maybe he doesn't love it so much, but he still does a good job preparing lessons for them.
And we have some exciting news! Daniel got his branch preference, so he will officially be a Medical Service Officer after graduation! (read about it here) So we'll be with the army for six years and then he plans on going into hospital administration. This also means that we get to spend the summer in San Antonio! We're both pretty excited about that. We're also EXTREMELY excited to get out of Utah and spend some more time with Daniel's family.
We're just full of exciting news here, hopefully more to come soon!
