Julie and I have arrived at our rental home in Garrison, NY to prepare for graduation this weekend for Matthew at West Point. There will be 16 family members in all here to celebrate with us.

It feels like just a year ago that we dropped Matthew off at R day. The first photo above is the day before R day (pre haircut). The second photo is of Matthew marching with his Beast Barracks company at A day. He is in the column closest to camera, just left of center.
