The Journey

When our daughter joined the Navy in November, July seemed so long off. There was so many things to do. At that time there was Christmas to look forward to and then senior prom and then Graduation. I thought once Christmas was over time would fly.... well she just left for her senior prom and she has 13 days left of school. Time seems to be flying. Dont get me wrong... I am so proud of her and support her decision. She has a great recruiter and the support she has received through the DEP…

Received Son's Standard Letter

After we got home from our friends daughter's baptism and then had lunch at a wonderful resturant in downtown Houston, we can home and checked our mail to see we have received the standard letter from our son containing his address and information about graduation, he graduates 12 days after my birthday. What a wonderful birthday present this year. I was so excited thinking it was an actual letter from him. But it is okay because I now have his address and will send my first letter out on…

Words with my man

Im so happy at the fact that i get to talk to my boyfriend quite often while he's on deployment. It helps me get through my days because i know that he's safe. I get all my email to my phone so i can chat with him while im out and dont have to sit by a computer all day. For past week we've got to email almost everyday and when he calls i am very excited to hear his voice. Somedays i just think about how in the old days women had to be much stronger then the women of today because all they…

After almost 4 years of diligently working to loose weight, my son finally made all his measurements.  During this time his course of enlistment changed.  He is no longer entering the Navy but instead switched to ARmy.  I do not know how to delete myself from Navy for Moms.  Sadly, I have not been able to find a group such as this for Army.  I do wish there was a support group for Army moms.  Good luck to all your sons and daughters.  I will be more than willing to delete my profile, but not…

Planning her going away party!!

I am sitting here this morning going over last minute plans for Kay's going away party and this is getting harder by the minute. I am praying for the strength to get through Sunday. I have so many mixed emotions...I am excited but also sad. I will miss this kid so much. I just want her to have a wonderful party with family and friends. I want a happy party not a sad weepy one. So pray for me!!! haha.

Received a letter :)

We received a personal letter from our son today....still no form letter. His address said Ship 09 DIV 171, I wrote him back immediately but I don't want to worry him about asking someone for this. Can I call his recruiter to find a copy of the letter? I am only concerned if I need it for PIR. We are going to be traveling quite far so I want to have all the info I need.....

I have looked into the schools there and have heard good things and bad about Cox high and was wondering if anyone has there child there. Worried about the things that I have read and would love some info. My family will be moving this summer it would be nice to hear from someone that knows and get real info and put…
