Oh my gosh well great for you!!! I have been thinking of you! Thank you for the comment on my photo. Yes my Ex Husband and I do not talk but what beatiful boys we do have. My oldest passed away in July it has been hard for us, but he is our angel watching over his brother as any big brother would do. How is your mommy to be? I can not wait to meet you.

B about it ?
Hi there Mom, not its not the weather I have been shedding many tears this morning myself. I got up positive yesterday...no letter or call or really anything and I am just a little down and lonely. We will get used to this just wait until that first phone call!
He got there on the 1 of November but others in our ship and division did not arrive until mid week so I am assuming that they will not start the first week with all there. LOVE YOUR NAMES VERY MUCH!!! I wonder if it is a girl because they can not see or tell, hmmm how exciting. No phone calls or letters back, probably will not get any for at least another week. They can ony write sun morn. Not much time Yes I have sent about 19 or 20 letters, he had better write back. Peace out for now
PS Never apologize to me about not getting back to me, I am on and off and just beginning to understand how to navigate this website. sometimes I do not even know I have a responce because the communication locations are all over the place for me.
Hi Queen thank you for your blessing God Bless your child too. Well next week is week 3 and I am told it includes Seamanship, boarding and disembarking. First Aid, Physcial Testing (running and situps) should be a more challenging week and more interesting it sounds like!!!!
