Excitment on our Homestead

There was lots of excitement in my household this week.  My son Sgt.
Richard Miller finished his military time (5 years) and returned home to us on Thursday evening.  He is now out of the Army and heading into a new future.  Richard picked up his brother Jacob in Washington DC and together they began their cross country trip.  The first stop was to see their Auntie Debbie and cousins in Illinois.  They both said they had a great time there visiting with everyone.  They left Illinois and headed home.  They were here in Washington State 3 days later.  There were lots of hugs and excitement when they arrived.   

After all the hugs and excitement the first thing my son wanted was to chow down on some of mom’s homemade lasagna and French bread!   

Richard’s future plans include college and marriage.  He is marrying a very sweet and beautiful young lady.  Here is a picture of the two of them…


We are thrilled to have our son close to home again and excited right along with him for what the future holds for them!
