8isenuff. My daughter also had her 19th birthday in BC. she has a twin brother and it was also their first one apart. It was wierd for all of us.
I do not know what prototype is. Can you share?
Comment by 8isenuff (ET & MM) yesterday

These girls have some true grit, don't they?  Yep, so proud of all of them.  They are paving the way.  :-) 

My daughter was 18 when she left for BC, too, and her brother was 20.  She had her 19th BD at RTC.  Sort of made me sad, no one to really celebrate her day, no fun cards, trying to fly under the radar, etc., but I tried to consider it a dress rehearsal for the lifestyle to come.  So glad you ladies are here.  I wish I had known about this site before BC!

She initially told me she would graduated from Prototype at the end of July, I think?  But the reactor she is assigned to was taken down for maintenance, so now it is anyone's guess.  It could be down for a month, or it could be 6 months.  One of my friend's son was there for a total of 13 months before he received his assignment.  Yikes!  :-(  The good thing is that it is still only a 6 year commitment, even if they should spend 1/2 of it at Prototype. 

Anna, if you should travel our direction, please look me up!  You have a general idea of where, lol.  Can't wait to see more wedding photos!  Tell that photographer to hurry up!

Jean, 3 days left, but who is counting, right?  :-)  Love those pictures of Aurora...

8isenuff. She made me laugh too. She is a funny girl. I cannot imagine having 2 in BC at the same time. Wow! I love reading about everyone's daughters and what they are doing. I am proud of all of them!!!
Comment by splash on Tuesday
Blondie. I asked her about her contract. She said she has the same. 4 yrs sea duty and 4 shore. She said she is on sea duty now. Which is still odd to me because she is not assigned to a ship. She is with the Sea bees. She even wears their uniform. I wish I had joined the military when I was young.I still live in the same town I grew up in.

Hi all any suggestions on how to help a toddler deal with Mom being away at Boot camp.. thank you 

Comment by Vickyrun on Tuesday

Good morning, Chrissy was told by her Air Force Uncle that she would get leadership roles in BC, so she was prepared. She didn't hate it,  just complained some when she was frustrated with the younger women. The only time she was real mad was the no makeup punishment. She got good at leadership during in A school. One day she told everyone to clean the barracks and then the commander called her into the office and she thought she was in trouble but she wasn't, she got a BZ for taking the initiative and doing a good job. she was so excited that she called me and I said "Good thing I taught you how to do housework!!!"

Comment by Jean on Tuesday

Good Morning to Everyone.

Sorry I wasn't on yesterday, I had to start that yucky job early and it was watch and leave type of thing. By the time I got home all I wanted to do is eat and go to bed. I only have 4 days left. I am the only one leaving this week. Everyone else has been ask to do another week. I can't I have doctor appointments next week. Have to get things done that I have not had a chance to do in a year. Hope everyone has a fantastic day. Enjoy. 

Comment by Blondie on Tuesday

my daughter was just 18and 1 month when she left for BC.  I went to her PIR but she was a grad-an-go so only had 1 1/2 hours with her, then 5 months later (after a A & C school ) she left for the middle east.....5 years later and only 3 short visits...WOW She was all grown up and a Women.  She turned 25 last summer and came home for her birthday!!!!  She ran her first Marathon that weekend.  Now she's getting married....even tho we are very close and she stayed in contact as much as she was allowed and now calls 2-3 times a week (she's state side)  I feel like I Missed so much. :(  BUT am So PROUD of the Women she has become.  She says she's moving back to Ohio as soon as she can...12 years.

Splash have her look at her contract, mine had to do 4 at sea and 4 on land.  BUT just because they are assigned to a ship doesn't mean they will be out to sea the whole time.  And think of all the Great Places she will visit....

8isenuff, that is funny you say that when my sailor joined she could not swim.  her hardest test was the swim test.  she said I can save myself and someone else but why would I jump into the water?  she did when they crossed the equator, the third time!  LOL  I agree about the just knowing ...I'd get a just in case call when my daughter left to go out undercover and couldn't wait to get the all clear sign!  But hearing her voice has always been my Stay.

Prayers for all
