Captain Ben Rogers

Ben made Captain on March 1, 2013 and so we made a quick trip to Aizona to celebrate with them.  It is wonderful to have them back out west this year.  Ben will be in class through September at the least and possibly through December.  He is taking the Captain's Career Course in Military Intelligence. 

Blake just turned 4 in February.
 He is a sweet, happy, boy - almost as tall as Kaylee. 
He is usually on the move and singing a song as he goes. Before the ceremony, Blake said, "My Daddy has a #1 on his hat!" (The emblem for captain is 2 bars and the emblem for Lieutenant is 1 bar. )
It is always a treat to spend time with Ben and Jamie, but our visits are never long enough.  The drive is 7-8 hours, but it is such a nice drive without all the random traffic and craziness of the drive to Utah. Even though it is the same length, the distance seems shorter.  And the Arizona roads are definitely better.  We listened to almost a whole audio book each way.  I'm still working on my hexies.  I'll have to post my progress soon.
