yes asa is going to be a cryptolagist and will be going to A school in Florida. My hubby missed out daughters first birthday by a week while he was in the navy he shipped out for west pac just a week before. I have video of Asa and him trying to get her to walk back and forth between them so dad could see her first steps in person, Asa was just 4 years old its cute but at least your son made those videos that was a great idea
I too look forward to chatting back and forth. I never used to run into people who had even heard of the name asa ,or if they had it was several generations back so it's cool when I run into to sombody who knows it, very cool talk to you soon
nice to hear from you how r u doing with his leaving? I will enjoy be able to talk with someone whos son left when mine did the blogs help alot but getting a friend base on here will be great, how did your first but brief phone call go? I wonder if they will end up in the same comp? as soon as we find out we will have to compare, but even if they are not we can still be here for each other and thats a lot. My name is cheryl and I live in Yelm,wa thats near tacoma and my sons name is asa. I look forward to talking more... hang in there!
