Hippo Birdy Two Ewes

Our youngest soldier, Ethan, turns 19 today. His brothers turned 20 and 23 in Afghanistan and Iraq, respectively. He turns 19 at Ft. Knox, with less than a month to go in his Basic Training. We don't dare send him a birthday card, or anything else that would draw undue attention to him! But a discreet letter with all our love and best wishes went out and should get there...sometime. You never know with the mail on a military post...

This is the kid whose labor started on a Wednesday...quit that night...restarted on Saturday...and made his appearance, amid prayers and concerns over the cord wrapped around his neck, on Mothers' Day. He's been making it up ever since!

Happy Birthday, Ethan!

Happy Birthday Ethan! I hope you got to enjoy your birthday in some way. I know it's hard to when you are in basic training.

Thank you for serving our country!
