On May 1st Barry became a Lt. Junior Grade or LTJG. He choose to have his ceremony at the Asan WWII lookout. Commander Willis Arnold "performed" the ceremony. Willis and his family have become very great friends. Not only does a pay raise come with this but also a deployment. They don't deploy ENS which is what Barry was before but they do deploy LTJGs. Barry heads off to Japan for training on the 9th of July and then on to Afghanistan the end of August. He will be there for 210 days, so please be praying for us!

Nothing like meeting new friends through old traditions. It was an awesome night getting to know fellow Aggies and remembering Aggies that have passed this year. We had a great time and it was nice to bring a little Aggieland to a place so far from home.

So the pictures are backwards to what I am about to write but if you read and then go back up it will work!
The third day was the day that Tonya and Esan had to leave. So we spent time hanging out at the pool until it was time to put them in the taxi to head out. Camille and I then took off to the Singapore Flyer. This huge Ferris wheel type "ride" that takes you up and around to give you views of Singapore. Then we headed to China Town. Camille took me to one of her favorite shop. You would think that she has bought tons of stuff there the way the owner talked but Blake doesn't have to worry she has not but I did. We had a good time and can't wait till we can see each other again.
