Last time leaving the house with Captain ranks on =)
Keenan with the card he made for Philip
"Daddy, I hope you have a good time being Major! Love, Keenan"
Moriah's (and she wrote it all by herself!) says:
"Congratulations Major Daddy"
I got a huge cake from Publix
(and I had a small piece)
The coin I put on the cake
Moriah's special nails for the occasion
Me goofing around and wearing one of Philip's major ranks as an earring =)
Lt Col (Dr) Paulson, the program director, was the Presiding Officer
Here he is administering the Oath of Office
Taking off the old ranks...
The kids putting on the new ones
Doing his thank you speech
1st Lt Earl was the narrator for the ceremony
(he is one of the nurses on Philip's team)
Moriah and I with our beautiful roses from Philip
Caleb tuckered out in the van (with his balloon trailing in the back) =)
Congratulations, Philip! We love you and are soo proud of you!
