  1. Well my brother’s name is Brent and he is 20 months, 20 days and 2 minutes younger than me. We have
    always have been close, and are Military kids so we moved around a lot and we always had each other as
    friends through all the ups and downs of moving all the time and starting over at a new school with new
    friends and adjusting to a new life.

    My first son I named after my bother Brent. His name means “a peacemaker”.
    My next son is Brandan, the “dan” is for Daniel in the lion’s den, instead of Brandon. I wanted his name
    to be more unique.
    My next son is Brennan (all of us are B’s) and he is super smart.
