...here is an update on Taylor. He is doing real well. He is in his 4th week of basic training. There are 3 levels of training. Red, first level, white, second level and blue, third level. He just started the white level. He earned 30 minutes phone time. It was so good to hear his voice and find out he is doing great. They have divided his platoon into groups and assigned squad leaders over each group. Taylor is a squad leader. That alone tells me he is trying hard and has made a major attitude adjustment. Way to go Taylor!! He has also been called to be a priesthood instructor in the Ft. Sill branch. He loves it. We will be attending his basic training graduation in March. I am very excited to put my arms around my son and tell him I love him!
I know what you are all thinking, "Why such a serious face?" in his picture. Come on, give him a break...it's the army! Would you smile if you had to stand in front of the mirror and take your picture with your cell phone? He looks like a real soldier. Just remember that he is learning how to annihilate the enemy. Not much to smile about when you think of it. We are proud of him and the hard work he is doing.
