Here's a photo of his name on the Vietnam Memorial (photo found online via the 9th Infantry 6/31st Infantry website.)
The photos I used on the layout (thanks to Josh's dad for getting them to me so quickly):
Who needs space exploration when our own planet is filled with things you could only imagine. One of the episodes explore caves. Ok, so you're probably thinking, what's so interesting about a cave? Well, in Mexico's Cueva de Villa Luz is featured with its flowing stream of sulphuric acid and snottite formations made of living bacteria. These quite literally look like snot hanging from the ceiling of the cave. There was also another phenominon (and I do not remember the term) where salt water and fresh water meet. Because the salt water is denser than the fresh, it stays on the bottom. The fresh water that floats above it gives the appearance of an air pocket. It's quite strange and fascinating.
I haven't finished the series yet. It's a four disc set (5 if on regular DVD) and each episode is about an hour long. But now that I'm talking about it, I'm in to mood for a little TV. :)
I don't use bread anymore for sandwhiches. I use these "Kangaroo" pita pockets. If you toast them crispy, they make your sandwhich ten times better. Right now my fave sandwhich is garlic hummus, feta cheese, tomato, shredded carrot, and fresh spinach.
These are pretty good too. They're called "kartoffeltaschen." They're basically like hashbrowns, but has a filling in it. I like the one with cream cheese and chives.
Finally, the newest Panic! at the Disco is simply wonderful. If you are a fan of the Beatles, you can definitely hear the inspiration. One of my favorite cartoons growing up was "Yellow Submarine." Pretty strange for a 5 year old to like that movie, but I did and still do. I remember singing along to the Sgt. Pepper's album too. :)
Don't hate my mad drawing skills. ;) This was a 30 second drawing before I had to go. Afterall, laughter is the best medicine, right?
PS- What did you fear the most about becoming an adult?
I think my biggest fear now is the world that my children are growing up in. Too many people are either oblivious to what's going on out there or they just don't give a damn. It's easier to turn a blind eye to the truth than reach down and try to make a difference, no matter how small it may be. The best way to predict the future is to invent it. Pay it forward. ;)

ScrapMojo's new challenge is up!!! I used alot of the Rainbow stuff Cathy sent me for this one. Also I squeezed in some stuff from last month's kit from Magistical Memories Look at my little Anberlin. She's a rocker in the making. ;)
FTW= For the Win. Representing Hollywood Squares.
This is the older layout I used as inspiration for the Mojo lo. This was one of my beginner layouts.
So Saturday was National Scrapbook Day. SiSTV had festivities and challenges all day. I managed to do ONE. It was a beautiful day and I just couldn't keep the kids couped up while I scrapped. But it is a good thing I did this one because it made the Cat Walk at SiS today. :) Thanks Lucy for the challenge/inspiration!!
The non scrapbooking stuff. I put a bulletin board up in my scrap area. There's not a lot up on it, but I cut some drawings out of my sketch book to put on the board. Josh saw this teddy bear and now he wants to get 2 of them tattooed on his arms. One in the pink and one in blue (this one has Anberlin's birthday on it's stomach). He wants them on his forearm...one on the inner part and one on the outer. I like the idea, I think it's adorable.
Look! I was ecstatic when I found this book as a Buy it Now on EBay. Why? Well, for one it's illustrated by my favorite illustrator. Two, it's in excellent condition. Three, it's the 423rd book printed. Four, the price was WAY WAY WAY below what it should have been. I think the seller did not know what he had. It's in French, but I didn't buy it for the poems.
One day I'll share more of the illustrations. I did also get another vintage cocoa ad designed by her a couple of months ago. :)
Anberlin's birthday was on the 1st. Four years old. She had a great day, even though it started off with 2 hours with a speech pathologist. She thought it was fun, she felt like she was playing school. I, however, had to try to keep Sebastian quiet in the elementary school while she was being tested. O_o
Off to do...something.
ps-Some new tuneage...check out Panic! at the Disco's newest album. And Cab "Whisper War." *drooool* I did the last layouts while listening to those 2 albums.
