Harold and Mikey
Jen’s Uncle Harold came to visit The visit was prompted by the need to escort grandson and future West Point cadet Mikey up to the famed military academy. Harold is the brother of Jennifer’s mom and this was his first chance to meet William. (He first met Tristan in January 2007).
The whole family is very proud of Mikey. Jennifer’s family has had a long association with the Point…while Tom’s family has more famility with Annapolis…and look forward to many visits…and at least one graduation!
Mikey got to spend a night with some current cadets at the Point. Apparently, they were happy to have him as they got to miss inspection that day. He thought it was a blast.
While Mikey wasn’t at West Point, he was acting as a big brother (or big third cousin) to Tristan. Here is is tormenting Tristan with an electic (toy) drill:
…but Tristan turns the table quickly:
Word is that Mikey will start at school in June and then “graduate” from boot camp some time in August. We can imagine a whole troup of West Coast relatives coming out at that point. Until then, Mikey has a room reserved right here…
