is anyone’s son leaving on Father’s Day? My son graduates HS in 2 weeks then 3 weeks later on Father’s Day we give him to the recruiters...trying to enjoy the time we have with him...I get tears in my eyes every time I think about it.
Yeah a mom in the same group...we are driving down to meps after we give him to the recruiter and will watch the last swear in and I’m not sure if we get to go to the airport or not. I’m glad your son was finally cleared. What job will he have?
Kyle has his 1 month meeting today...I can’t believe it’s only 1 month...
well one week countdown is on - I am really struggling to control my emotions :) Cade will be a Seabee so I've also joined that group as well. Did you plan anything fun for Kyle this week before he ships out? We are having a going away party for Cade on Saturday with all our friends and family. It should be a good time. I'm hoping to plan something for just he and I these last few days just to check in and gauge his emotions. He's not much of a talker, pretty stoic so it's probably more just to make me feel better. This time has just flown by. I hope the next 9 go by as fast as the past have!
Well we had all our family here for graduation for a week, we were going to have a party last weekend but it got rained out and unfortunately I (and our family minus Kyle) has to fly to CA for out WWII war hero grandfathers funeral (the recruiter wouldn’t let Kyle go) so we will fly home on the first flight home on Saturday and enjoy the last of our time together with dinner and a good Father’s Day/going away breakfast. Kyle and I will have lunch together tomorrow and I’m cooking all his favorite foods the last few days. Kyle is excited to be going, his roomies packed and ready.
i can’t believe our boys are leaving in a week...enjoy your last few days...
