My son is two weeks into Boot Camp and I'm sure all is well. It's the first kid to leave the nest and I didn't think I would miss him so much. Some of my friends said it's like college. I beg to differ. In College you can skype, email, get to them if you need to and they can do the same. So no it is not the same. Technology is a blessing and a curse, we've gotten used to instant communication. I will say the first thing I did was clean his room and all those clothes that he did not wear for years went to a homeless shelter. I felt a little guilty, but it needed to be done. Anyway, let me know how you coped.
