Alcohol Rehab

My nephew was finally moved out of jail and into a brand new rehab facility. Well, I guess it's been about three weeks, because he will move out of rehab and into the half way house next week. We are so hopeful for him this time. There are actually counselors that are helping him deal with all of his demons. He went in for alcohol rehab, but is also getting some grief counseling--and honestly--I think that will be the one thing that keeps him out of trouble!

Mission To Argentina

We have a nephew who is getting ready to head out on a mission. That means he will be out of the country for 2 years. These are very common around our hometown--but people in Illinois are shocked to hear about them. This young 19 year old is heading to Argentina and with the rugged terrain--I honestly think he's going to need some pretty tough luggage. You know Swiss Army or something just as durable. He will be fluent in Spanish when he gets home but will be mature beyond his 21 years! It's a sad/happy/proud moment for his family--and we wish him the best!
