We had a great visit at the kids' school yesterday. Sadly, my camera battery died because I had forgotten to charge it. Wah. I did get a few shots but not many.
The kids totally cracked me up! The boys in the first grade were bouncing in their seats to see a 'real soldier.'
"He's not a fake guy. He's real."
"This is sooooo unbelievable!"
"His clothes are real."
To one of our girls, "You have the best big brother in the whole world."
The older boys had other types of questions, like:
"What kind of guns do you use?"
Jordan's teacher told the kids, "You are getting to meet a real, live American Hero."
Ryan and Dani enjoyed seeing all the kids, visited their classes, ate lunch and went out for recess with them to play ball. It was a beautiful day--60 degrees--so everyone had fun.
Later, as we talked about it, Ryan's response to the 'American Hero,' comment was that he hasn't done anything heroic. Dani and I assured him that just joining and being willing to be sent anywhere, IS heroic and we appreciate those who stand between us and the enemy.
We found some time to do an engagement shoot so here are some sneak peeks...all at low resolution.
