hi! everything went well by the grace of God. I was there too at the PIR. Too bad I'm kind of shy to approached everybody. Some faces seems different from the picture profile in the internet he he. I have met with some of the moms too.
God bless you and your family and to all. Congratulations to all of us who made it there despite of the winter storm. God is good.
Hi Josefina, I am from AZ. So I totally understand wanting to be warm. It has been cold here at night down in the 20s but we have had a few warm days in the low 70s. I finally heard from my son YAY!!! He is now over on the A school side and has duty today so I only talked to him for about 15 minutes. He bought a new laptop and was really happy. He is in temp housing right now for a few weeks and does not have a room mate so he is getting a little time to himself. He sounds good and he said he will be there until march 30th and then will be sent to San Diego for the rest of his school which will be June 11th graduation. This will be great as we can get there alot easier then getting to GL. we have no family even close to GL so I am really happy for your son that is awesome. Please stay in touch. Liz
