Hooray! He called this morning to tell his mom Happy Birthday. We talked for a few minutes and he said he's really enjoying it,

He called, but we were out, and I didn't have my cell with me. (Wasn't expecting him to call while he was out) He didn't leave a message, either....he doesn't like talking to the machine. :(

Dawn that is awesome! When Bobby first got to Norfolk, he was told he'd be flying out to the ship. Next morning, they told him he was going out in a RHIB. I was jealous!

Hello all. My son recently graduated IT A school and reported to the Ross on Sep 20.

Wow! Today was definitely German food day! What an awesome meal Yvonne made! I love her Sauerbraten (marinated rump roast), Spatzle (German noodle dumplings), Sauerkraut, and Creamed Spinach. Add to that her homemade rye bread, and oh! what a meal!! That was our Sunday dinner today! That was topped off with her German apple crisp and ice cream for dessert. Now I'm ready for a long nap! :)

Kari joined us for worship at church this morning and then for dinner this afternoon. I really think she enjoyed the meal as much as I did!

After we ate we prayed together...especially for her time underway, as well as the advancement exam she will be taking.

I shared a couple of scriptures with her for encouragement that I will share with you here too: check them out.

1 Corinthians 10:13

"No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it."

Philippians 4:6-9
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me — put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."
Matthew 6:33-34
"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

Please keep Kari, Crystal, Christopher, and Justin in your prayers as they go underway for a few weeks.

If your son or daughter are in this area we'd love to invite them over. :)

dawn, welcome to the group.  My daughter is no longer on Ross.  It was her time to move on to another ship.  She did serve on Ross for almost  3 yrs.

My son is finishing C-School as an advanced VLS tech on 9/11 and has been assigned to the USS Ross.  He will report to his ship on 9/15.  Just want to get in the loop and meet some other families!
