hi there! go glad to hear from you, my SR PIR is 6/6 and she stays in GL for A school for 221 days. I live in Minden and work in Carson. is there a blue star moms group in Carson that you might know of?
So glad to hear from another Mom with a son in AG. How long has your son been in the Navy? As you know, mine just started BC today! I miss him so much already and hope he handles everything okay. He's kind of shy and I don't want that to go against him. He's 24 so at least he's not a kid that will be push around. He went to 4 years of college for Forestry Management but decided the Navy was something he wanted to do. We live in Wisconsin so we're close to GL but since I can't see him it really doesn't matter!
It's so nice of you to reach out & offer help to us newbies. If you don't mind, I'll probably have lots of questions as the days go by.
My real name is Stephanie. I'm a nanny for some little girls that call me Shesh. :)
Hey how cool that we have the same real name! I'm so glad you stumbled upon me in Christian Chat. I sent you an invite to the Nevada Moms group. I hope you'll join us over there. There are quite a few Moms who are up here in Northern Nevada and a few just sent their recruits off to BC. I am in the process of planning on putting together a Northern Nevada N4M potluck picnic in September to build a local network for us and hopefully get a few more local Moms involved.
I grew up in Carson City and now live in Reno. My Mom still lives in Carson and I visit her about twice a month. I would love to get together with you some time. You are so lucky that your son is stationed out of San Diego. My son is really hoping that after he finishes all of his Nuke school training that he will be stationed out of San Diego. We'll see...I hope so!
