I am so glad you get to talk with your sailor every day it makes such a difference in our life and I am sure it gives them that assured confidence to hear mom's voice- lol
My son received his orders he will be moving on to Washing State - YAY!!!! HE IS VERY VERY HAPPY ABOUT THAT!!!!
I will not be able to attend his graduation next weekend but I am okay with that, he even said Mom, please I will be home just after graduation, and I would prefer you to save your vacation time so that when I get home you can take a few days off and we can spend it together.......and of course we can spend your money instead of mine....SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE....BUT I LOVE SPOILING MY CHILDREN......
Hi Dubbie; sorry I accepted friend request with out finish reading your commet. What I did see is that your sailor is loving life at this moment........Good for him.....I know for my Sailor this is one of the BEST decisions he ever made in life. He is so "grown up" it scared me ;-)
will talk to you soon.
Dubbie - you're very welcome! I enjoyed watching the news clip too. How awesome to almost feel like you're there and know a little of what they're experiencing. Sorry I didn't answer your friend request earlier...I was so preoccupied with reading everyone's posts, I didn't even notice I had a friend request lol. So excited to see everyone - I can't wait!
I'm having a hard time staying upbeat. I smile when I read the other posts from those whose kids have already gone through bs. It's infectious and I'm excited for them, but it seems like a long time since I got CURRENT info from my daughter. Her last letter made me want so BAD to be able to talk to her and tell her how proud I was of her for doing this. She just sounded beat down and it makes me want to cry. I know she's a pretty tough cookie, but I think it was a morale buster to think that the 166 men might not graduate. She said they were all going to go to church as a division last Sunday. Maybe that helped....
dubbie, The meet and greet is for all family's that are a grad for that friday. You, your spouse, children, grandparents or friends are invited to this. It is open to everyone. We had one of the ladies make us different colored ribbons for the different div. to find each other and then we asked the hotel people to call each div. up on stage and we all used each others cameras to take pictures. It was so great. Someone in my div. even made buttons with our Sailors div. flag they div. made together. Deanna
