Well Saturday was a wonderful day. Michael went to his last Klondike Scout District event to support his brother who was choosen to be in the OA (Michael is also a member) Joseph was so excited that his brother took off from work to be there they had so much fun then Michael will be going to the ordeal to again support his brother. I took some wonderful pictures then I came home sat down and cried. These days are getting to be so hard knowing each scout event and holiday that comes will be the last one each time that Michael will be here in my home. Man this sux.

What if you change the adjective of the sentence?  ....

The FIRST time Michael thought he wanted to serve his country.....

The FIRST time Michael talked to me about going to see the recruiter ..

The FIRST day Michael started to prepare for his MEPS

The FIRST time I post a blog on Navy For Moms .

The FIRST time I look at Joseph and realized he too was growing up. :)

then later,

The FIRST time Michael got to send us a letter besides the "form letter."

The FIRST time Michael got to call us other than the quickie, "I am here." call.

The FIRST thing I saw at Great Lakes (for PIR).

The FIRST time I saw Michael in his uniform.

My FIRST impression at PIR.

It's important to go forward because that is what he is doing. So .. adjust your thinking ..  it'll make it a little easier.  You may not be any less emotional and that is OK.  

Good luck. If you haven't you should see the videos in the Navy For Moms Survival Guide, join all the right "pre" boot camp groups, the Boot Camp Moms groups (when he finally departs for BC). You'll find the links in the guid
