My son just left last week for GL so I am really new to all of this. I love reading all the posts and hearing the excitment in them. I can't wait until I can post that I'm leaving in the morning for PIR or even that I got the phone call that tells me he's a Sailor. My son had been talking about the Navy since last year but I guess I never thought the day would come when he would really leave. Part of me so so excited he made such a great choice for his future but the other part of me still wants to curl up into a ball and cry. When do the emotions settle down? Looking forward to chatting with other Idaho moms.
