There's nothing like home...

Spending time with the brother and sister

When I left for Ann Arbor, my brother was twelve, and in his first year of secondary school. Now he's just about ready to graduate and enter junior college. My sister -- she'll always be the baby of the family, even though she'll be thirteen at the end of the year. Sometimes I wish I had been around to see them grow up. Despite the distance (and the age divide -- I'm six years older than my brother and nine years older than my sister), I'm thankful we're as close as we are. They're good kids and I'm very proud of them.

Hey Feng, Love the picture! I hope you are able to spend sometime with your family. Time really does fly, your brother and sister look so grown up. You are looking good, army life and being home seems to agree with you.

Your sister reminds me of you, back in NY, with your long(er) hair. 10 years slips by so fast.
