Josh got picked up for promotion to Staff Sergeant (E-6)!! :D Congratulations, baby :) I can't say I'm surprised, but shockingly enough he almost didn't make it! They only picked up 43 out of the 300+ promotable sergeants in his job. I think he was number 41 or 42. Close one!! We really need that money so we're thrilled :) It's a hefty raise from E5 to E6, which we practically already spent on the new van payment :P haha. Oh well! That's how it goes, right? Josh works his butt off to provide for this family and God is always there to lend a hand :) We're lucky people!
