It's Official...2nd Lieutenant John Russell Wright

This morning, Russell went before a board of high-ranking officials in Montgomery, AL to be interviewed for a potential upgrade in his military status to 2nd Lieutenant. I asked permission to snap this shot of my favorite two men early this morning and then blog about it. :) Russell agreed. I mean, how could I resist...a gentleman in uniform, holding a baby! What is cuter and sweeter than that!?!? Praise the Lord, the interview and commissioning ceremony went well, and Russell is officially a 2nd Lieutenant in our U.S. military!!

"I'm proud of you for following the Lord's leading in this, Honey, and where He leads you, there we (your family :)) will follow!"
