hello janelle..been awhile since we chatted . just thought I would see how you and your son are doing. My son Steven will be graduating f.m.t.b school the 30th of this month. and after will be stationed 2 hrs from home. We are so proud of him. Been a little concerned that he will be soon deployed to kuwait. But praying for the best. Hope all is going well with you. God Bless and take care....janelle
My son is leaving on Monday and yes I will be crying but not until after his plane leaves. I want every minute he spends here to be a happy one. He really isn't taking much besides his seabag, phone, laptop and a few civies. They just don't have much room in their racks. Later when we find out what he needs we can send him care packages.
Glad you found me on here, I have been looking for you for a couple of days... Glad you made it home safely! I will email you pictrues this week, hopefully tonight. Today is my first day back to work and I am so busy. Had a great weekend, just was so short.
hey janelle..just wanted to say thank you again for the ribbon..wish we could have been able to visit more..wasnt it so amazing! I enjoyed it and it was so wonderful to see Steven, I wish we could have stayed longer..cant wait until May when they done with A school. Best of luck to your son during school,...thank you again....stevensmom....janelle
I tried to send her a message but I couldn't find her on my friend list. I know she was there because I sent her ribbons. I wondered if she changed her screen name. I have her phone number so I all call her tomorrow morning. If I can figure out how to get them thete in time I will make one for the new mom as well. You don't have to pay for it, my treat. Thanks for your help.
We're on flight 1458. We don't get into Midway until 8:05. Unfortunately we won't be able to make the meet n greet. I'm very sad about that. sounds like you're flying out earlier. We're staying at the Residence Inn. Will be in Illinois until Sunday, my son flies out Saturday. Maybe we can meet up at some point. Hope to meet you soon.
