I took William to get his Spring pictures taken. I think I need to go more often because he was a little scared of the white background screen that he was to stand on. I don't know what his deal was but he would stand right up to the edge of it and not budge. It took some major psychology games to get him to feel comfortable standing on the screen AND looking at the camera. I loved the final result. You'd never know how much stress was caused to get these pictures.
*We'll take a family photo as soon as I lose the weight. In case you were wondering, I've lost 30+ lbs already. A drop in the bucket, but I'm encouraged.
Sean finally got his SWSCO pin. For those who don't speak in acronyms it stands for Surface Warfare Supply Corps Officer pin. Basically it's his insignia that proves that he's competent at his job. He did have to take a bunch of tests and meet in front of a board of senior officers for interviews and prove he could do tasks such as damage control, flight operations, shipboard supply systems, and be the Officer of the Deck. It was a pretty big deal for Sean and I was very proud. Especially when they let me have the honor of pinning him.

William waited very patiently.
The pinning (just like Cub Scouts!)
It was SO hot in there and I was very dehydrated and therefore very pale.
