MM 584-604

They came in on Thursday and left mid-Saturday.  A blur of celebration and food and time together as we recognized my not-so-little-anymore brother's hard work and accomplishment. Master's in Accounting.
Where's the little brother I bossed around?

Where's the crazy teenager in school musicals who answers to the name Lugz?

He's still here, but these days you can find him all grown up, reading stories to his oldest nephew when we come over for a visit.

I am so proud of his hard work and the type of man he has become.  We have our moments of disagreement from time to time, but I know that when push comes to shove that we have each other's back.  I could not ask for a better brother.
