National Guard Family

We interrupt our usual Thursday post of "Handmade in the Wild" to say...

Congrats Spc Ostrem!

This fall, Dan joined the Army National Guard with goals of becoming an engineering officer. Here he is holding the kids in his first set of uniforms right after he enlisted.

Right after Christmas, he headed off to Basic Training at Fort Jackson. We used the paper chain above to count down the days until he was done - one link removed every night for just over 10 weeks.

Today, he graduates from Basic, and we get to pick him up at the airport later today or tomorrow - we are so proud of him following his dream of serving our country and we are so excited to see him soon!!!!
