My baby brother, Jared–who is no longer a baby–is an amazing young man. He’s way more independent than I was. Ever since dad bought him all that space stuff, that’s all he ever talked about: being an astronaut and going into space. He tinkered at that rocket night and day, until one night he did go to space!
He came back with an incredible story to tell…and some very interesting seeds I’ll get mom to plant. But, let’s back up a few years. Jared started walking around the neighborhood meeting people. One night he met this girl named Asia, and I must say that he was bitten by the love bug. Between the rocket and Asia, that’s all he ever thought about.
They hung out for a while before he made her his girlfriend. And then, of course, he gave her a promise ring. I wonder where he got that idea from!
They are a very cute couple, and I wish them all the best. Asia is a little younger than he is, so he’s focusing on his career right now while he waits for her 18th birthday.
