I received my BA in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2009, have recently finished my teaching credential courses and am now getting my Masters in Education.

hi there!!! Im also from the so. cal area!!! We live in Victorville.... my daughter is also in bootcamp right now.... she graduates march 9th also. I sent u a friend request.... i read the message u posted about ur sons friend needing to find transportation... what time does he arrive? We are flying into chicago, midway airport @ 330pm.... is he flying there? I wanted to fly into ohare which is closer but the tix prices were much cheaper with southwest and they only fly into midway. If he needs a ride... maybe we can help. But also , wanted to let u know, there is a taxi company advertised here that has real cheap rates... i wouldnt recommend public transit in a big city that we are unfamiliar with. I believe its called "Sarges Taxi" phone # (847)212-0246... he charges a flat rate of $52 from ohare to any of the local hotels in the great lakes area. hope that helps... but message me if u need us to give him a ride if hes flying into midway. We are renting an SUV there at the airport. it'll be 5 of us... im sure we may be able to squeeze 1 more in. lol
I sent you a friend request, i thought I had received a friend request from you but when I hit accept my computer locked up and I lost who it was from. It is wasn't you I am really sorry I bothered you :-) Just let me know. I hope you and your recruit are doing well :-)
Yes, sorry it took so long to respond. Work has been so busy. His letters come on Thursdays. He will be leaving GL and going to Groton CT for A school. This was a shock because it changed. I sent him information on the area. It does look pretty neat. Just wish we could see him for the weekend. I believe he will fly on Sat morning..Update me on your son okay?

Hello! We are still waiting for Ryan's box to get here. We received his call on the 25th stating he made it there, but as of today we have not received his things or the form letter. We were a little disappointed because we were expecting his graduation to be March 23rd, however this isn't one on that day. I am assuming we will need to wait until the 30th so I am not sure what he will do all of this week since then it will be over 8 weeks that he will be there. How old is your son? We used to live in Menifee/Sun City until 2001 and the kids went to Chester Morrison. Ryan just turned 20 and graduated in 2010. I hope you receive your letter soon so that you can make plans. It's so strange not being able to talk to Ryan and see how things are going. I am glad you were able to talk to him and that he was doing well. :) Talk to you soon. Stephanie
