When my family came to visit in July, they left something behind. My 6', lovable brother, Derek. Derek and I were born just eighteen months apart and we've always been close.
It's been an interesting switch for me to have family around. Derek fits in so well here at the base and I've never felt like I had to babysitting him or make sure he was comfortable. Don't get my wrong, he can still be my incredibly annoying, little brother, but all-in-all I'm glad he's around.
