I Know I am so ready to see my kid! I still haven't gotten a phone call but I did get a letter yesterday. He sounded good said he hasnt seen charlie. We have been so busy now that school and football season is going its helping make the time go a little faster I still get nostalgic at football games though. i keep waiting for him to turn around on that field and grin up to where we sit. Have you heard from Charlie?
Hey! just droppin in to check on ya! We are all arranged to leave outa here on that Thursday so I can make it to the meet n greet! I can't believe it's already been 3 weeks! Somedays it feels like a lifetime, other days it seems to be moving quickly! Still no letter or phone call, which is making me crazy:) Hope you are doing well. I saw where you posted you miss his smart ass coments and I was thinking how much I miss Jake getting tickled at the most inappropriate things and moments! I AM SO READY TO GET MY HANDS ON THAT KID!!!!

No it hasn't come in yet, maybe today. Brockton's mail is slow. I feel the same way I'm glad he went, although I wish he would have gone to college first then joined, and he was so excited when he left(of course I was doing all I could do to keep it together), many mixed emotions:) I miss him like crazy. he is my oldest and the first to leave. I came home after dropping him off and told the girls we have a new family rule.....No one else is allowed to leave:)
