Good luck Matt!

Siblings are funny people.

When you're very young, you're told to be nice and give them hugs. As you grow, they start picking on you, and tricking you into thinking you'll become a super-ninja if you can just land that backflip off the living room couch. Maybe they trick you into eating dog food. Maybe it's something much, much worse. You drift apart a bit when you're teenagers. Then you a get a bit older and wiser, and you can't imagine your life without them.

My brother Matt is leaving for the Army today. He's heading to Ft. Benning, GA, and I'm not really sure when he'll have phone and online access again. Our friends and family are very proud and wishing him luck. Jake and I are too.

Love you Matt. You're much more of a super-ninja than I'll ever be.
