I got home yesterday from watching my son graduate from Bootcamp. I was shocked to see a man standing in front of me. He had a confidence that I have not see before (he had plenty of cocky before). The ceremony was beautiful. I am so proud that my son worked hard and stuck to it and is now going to A school. I can not correctly describe the feels and emotions. Anyone reading my blog, encourage your SR. Tell them it is worth it. Navy Moms has been a blessing in helping me get through this. …Continue

I don't think I have stopped smiling since Saturday 5:24cst. Our son was able to call us and we spoke for 32 minutes. We were super stoked and I will say I definitely believe in Mother's Intuition because all day I kept telling my husband "he's going to call us today"! We were getting ready to head to a graduation party and I sat on my bed and said, "come on phone freaking ring from IL". About 20 minutes later BOOM it was him calling. It was so refreshing to hear his voice. For minute…Continue
Good evening friends!
My son left for GL BC on May 31st and I thought all was well. Got the initial "Hey I made it okay will call you in 3 weeks". Then a couple of days later a package arrived with his personal belongings ie clothes, cell phone... Well, then yesterday (Sat 6/16) I got the dreaded phone call, mom, " I failed the run by 30 sec and they are sending me home". I felt such a deep sickness in my gut b/c he sounded so disappointed. If just didn't care so much then I am sure I…Continue
My fiancé left on 5/30 with a BC date of 6/1. I received his box over a week ago, but have yet to receive his form letter or a call. I’m worried that this means I won’t be getting anymore information. Does this mean things could just be going slower for the summer arrivals? Should I wait another week before I start to really worry? I know the saying is “no news is good news” but I’d prefer any news at this point. If anyone has a recruit that shipped at that time and you have news or any…Continue
Since receiving the form letter we've been researching for flights and the best prices. Well, after reviewing all our options for flights we just decided to drive from TX to Chicago. The flights for us are outrageous for my husband, myself and two teens. I searched all airlines and options and there's no way we can afford to fly out all four of us roundtrip. I already booked a room at the Navy Lodge, so we were lucky to get that reserved and in all we're excited that we will be there to…Continue

Its official I have a Sailor. My daughter called me yesterday afternoon and I cried lol. She was like mom are you there. I just replied I can't talk as I sobbed. Anyway I am so proud of my little girl . Thank you for all the info the past few wks. On to A school !!
Div 248 - I have a sailor! Everyone in that division passed! I am too excited to type!!
I am better now. My Sailor will be a MMN and going to Goose Creek. I thought it was for about 1 1/2 years but found out today it is more like 2 years. So I have 2 years before I worry about not hearing anything for months to years. I can't wait for him to get to use his phone. Texting and emailing will be a blessing. I know the hard stuff isn't over but boot camp was…Continue
I'm super excited!!! I just checked my informed postal delivery email and we have a letter arriving from our son. I'm thinking it has to be the FORM Ltr. I can't wait to get home and great my post lady!!
Battlestation here my SR comes! 5 days before graduation and I am positive my son has passed the final Fitness. Starting tomorrow, I will be on pins and needles waiting for my call. He is in a lower number so I won't have to wait long, hopefully. I feel bad for those whose SR are in a higher number. My graduation ribbons arrive on Monday. I hope I can get one to my sister in time for her to wear during graduation. I am trying not to squeal but it is hard. Hooyah - Go J Go!

So, the box arrived Monday. We were excited and sad at same time. I don't know about anyone else, but I just think its weird to have the items come in that box. I cried when I smelled his shirt. Gosh I miss that boy! I have letters written already, but now we're just waiting for the address.
Yesterday should've been in P5 day. I pray he did well on his running test. Like they say "no news is good news" and I'm sticking with that. Its 103 here in my place of TX and I'm glad…Continue
I am assuming we would of received a phone call if she failed her final run. I know she was taking it on Monday and don't know how long it would take for them to call if they fail. Does anyone know?! Praying for all our SR this week.
Hello all, I just wanted to put this out there for any parents who may have children leaving for BC. Our SR left May 8th 2018. Before he left we had a conversation about all of his bills. I told him while he was gone that I would take care of stuff for him. Car, tags, insurance, a credit card, and a few other things. I didn't realize at that time that we should have gotten paper work drawn up for me to be his power of attorney. I went to the DMV to try to deactivate his tags on his car, it…Continue
So far no news, We made it to Tuesday! My SR is in a lower number Division in the graduation line and by my GUESS he has done his run and so far no news. I actually think we are in the clear unless they are waiting for tomorrow to have him call. I will relax at this time tomorrow but feeling better. I wrote him a Sandboxx today and have 1 more before graduation. I need to think of something to say in both that and the final written letter. We…Continue
My daughter shipped for boot camp on 5/23, she would have done her 1.5 mile run on Friday (probably) so I figured I'd probably receive a call by Wednesday stating she was coming home/being separated if she didn't pass ( the first or second try). I have been concerned about the run due to the fact that she was told NOT to exercise because she needed to gain weight for MEPS, therefore she didn't practice running. I received a call this afternoon stating " This is a…Continue
I left town so I haven't had time to blog and no news to blog (hallelujah). I am getting nervous because I know the final Fitness test is soon or happened. It will be his final chance. I am trying to relax but Friday I was jumpy nervous. My phone would ring and I would panic. Today I am better and expect will be fine tomorrow. Monday and Tuesday?? Can I relax by Wednesday? I know I am driving myself nuts. I am my own worst enemy. I need to relax because after he was no longer sick he said he…Continue
