Smiles are everywhere

While at West Point for Plebe Parent Weekend, we were continually impressed with the amount of things our son was learning. At this hallowed institution, it's pretty incredible to think that our OS's teachers know him personally and in this case, that's not a bad thing or the exception.

We are on our best behavior as we toured the stately buildings replete with history and patriotism. I mean how can you act the fool when you have statues of Dwight D. Eisenhower, General MacArthur and other distinguished leaders all over the place staring back at you! 

But it was in Nate's barracks, just prior to meeting his gf (and she's quite a young lady!), our favorite plebe revealed a hidden talent, something he had learned from a fellow Soldier. 

Apparently during Beast all plebes learned to roll their socks in tight little balls. Not being content with mediocrity, however a fellow Soldier/prior service plebe showed our OS how to take his socks to the next level.

And that meant to make his socks smile. Even if Nate wasn't able to make his face grin during Beast, his socks looked happy. 

His fellow Soldier/roommate taught him how to roll his t-shirts too. "It looks neater," our plebe beamed. Ok, he didn't exactly beam but we did as he demonstrated his new found talent

As Nate shows off his folding skills, I'm also happy to debut my first iMovie. Hope you enjoy! 

May you and everything in your drawers be deliciously joyous today!   

PS. I have no idea why the movie is yellow. Guess I've got a lot to learn!

Loved your editing! As for the yellow, just explain that his technique is as good as gold and you intentionally wanted to honor that. :) Hooah!
