Russ and Coach Kraus
Russ with family and friends
Russ left for Navy boot camp today. We miss him already this evening and feel a blank space where he has filled our home with his goodness, and helpfulness, sense of humor and fun. We had a going away party for him yesterday afternoon, with friends and family coming and going from 3:00 until 9:00. He was sent off with an amazing prayer time (with about 12 of us) last night, and plenty of love and last minute advice; We Miss you Russ, and we'll be praying for you!
