June 26, 2011 - An interesting and fun day

Jason got a nice little surprise visit today, from a friend he hasn't seen in several years. Shauna E. came by, with her friend, Shara Y., to visit Jason, because they have recently moved to the Washington, D.C. area, where Shawna is working on her graduate studies (I have to apologize, as I don't recall if Shara is also working on her studies). They actually stayed for a nice visit and got to meet Bridgette and the girls, and unfortunately it was one of those times when I didn't have the camera with me, so no pictures this time. The good news is that they live in the area, so next time they come by I'll take a couple of pictures.

While they were here, David, Jason's brother comes walking through the door. He too came out to the East Coast and decided to come on by. Only his visit is going to be for 3 days, and he'll be staying with Dad (me). Actually, David came in about 15 minutes after Shauna and Shara came in, and Bridgette and the girls were already there so the room was full of people. It was kind of funny, in that some of the other "regular" Sunday visitors came by, and looked in the room and wisely just walked on by. It was already pretty full, and I guess we were getting a bit load with everyone talking and doing a bunch of catching up.

Then, a bit latter in the evening, David and I went off to get some dinner, and went to a different Mexican restaurant (Tex-Mex) than we had gone before. Jason asked us to bring him back a burrito (or two), but they didn't have any! We brought him some soft tacos and in effect, mini burritos. When we came in to Jason's room there was another visitor. One of the officers he had worked for, EOD, when he was stationed back in Okinawa. He was actually still there, when I left tonight, which I thought was really great! He felt comfortable enough to stay late with Jason, and I know Jason was happy to have him stay.

Over all, today was a fun and eventful day for Jason, and I think he really enjoyed all the people coming by. Thank you all, for the continued support and prayers, it is really doing wonders for Jason.

  2. So glad that Shauna and Sarah were able to visit. Shauna is so fond of Jason, and can deliver Edson hugs for all of us in person.

  3. Jason, your haircut looks good. Nice to hear you are getting so many visitors and that they are able to stay for so long. Tells us you are getting stronger every day. Love the photo album solution to the photos. Your girls are adorable and growing so fast. Take care!
