This Just In

The family blog is off and running. Linda Kirchubel has sent in these photos to share with the rest of the family. Have a look and enjoy. Here's a picture of Barbara (Linda's mom) and Rob on their boat. Her J-O-B, as Debbie Metteer would say, was to hold up the flag when we had a man down on the tube. She did a great job, even though she didn't like the water! She was a great sport.

Another picture of mom on the boat. Linda and Rob finally came up with a name for the boat: "Loki", the Norse god of mischief!

Linda's sister Carol-Anne, who went to high school with Debbie and Dale. Carol-Anne is a heap of fun and lives in Indiana.

Linda's other sister, Nancy, who lives in Tucson. Everyone drove up the Delat to a little restaurant on the water where Erich met up with them. They had a great time visiting and Carol-Anne made an awesome toast to his future that he will probably remember forever. It was a very special day for him to have his two aunts in from out of town.

Linda's oldest son, Erich, on graduation day.

Linda's mom (Dale & Debbie's Aunt Barbara, who was married to Shirlee's big brother Bob) with her older sister Nancy and Marc, her youngest.

Erich and Linda, on graduation day, before he goes off to the ceremony.

You can see Erich underneath the first "0" in 2005. He's on his way up to the podium to receive his diploma. WHEEEEEEEE! He made it and on July 25th is off to Lackland AFB as an E-3. Erich was in Civil Air Patrol for four years and obtained the rank of Cadet Commander (C-2nd Lt.). So this means he can go into Basic as an E-3.
