It would be great to talk with the other moms and families who are on the same ship and Div as my son.
My sailor is the third oldest out of 11 but the first one to really leave home. The oldest two moved out to go to college about 45 min away form us. I didn't think it would hit me so hard since we still have 8 kids at home but his leaving really left an unexpected hole. Having said that I am beyond excited for him. He worked long and hard for his EOD contract. An added bonus is we now have the chance to gain an office/guest room. We tore into his room the day he left and hope to have it completed by the time he has a chance to come home. I needed to get his room redone, walking by the door was killing me seeing all his stuff in there.
Sure Josh'smom. Thats public knowledge. Its a proud time for you.
Couldn't agree with you more. Not sure who started the fb page, ( and it seems like a great idea at first thought) but definitely should be shut down. We can talk all we want on this site :-D
Josh's mom, is your son in this division, 814?
I grew up in southern CA. What part of the state are you from? We left CA about 23 years ago in order to raise a family and settled in Ohio where my husband has family. My son has an EOD contract, what about yours?
We will be at PIR, all 13 of us plus a new daughter in law and my SR's girlfriend. It has been a whirlwind spring. We have a college graduate, a son's wedding, PIR,and my husbands graduation from his masters program. I'm thinking a couples get away is in order for the end of summer. I loved growing up in Southern CA but did not want to raise a family there. I love Ohio. We have a mini farm on 5 acres, lots of trees, a pond and creek. It is very peaceful being away from a big city and all the people. Will your daughter be at PIR with you? It would be wonderful to meet you.
I have older parents also, in their 80's who need a lot of care. Mine live several states away so it gets a little frustrating at times trying to do everything long distance. It is wonderful that your daughter is willing to care for her grandmother. It seems like most kids just want to take from grandparents not give to them.
