Good luck, Mom...did that twice myself. If you need to vent or have any questions, feel free! You won't believe the level of maturity you see in him the next time you see him!
Thanks! I keep hearing that level of maturity thing, which I'm having such a hard time wrapping my head around because he is already so responsible! Met his recruiter today, and even he commented on how well prepared Evan already is, before even leaving!
And this is such a better time of year to be in Great Lakes. They should be able to be outside doing physical training a bit more and not stuck in the drill halls. I was at Great Lakes in '95 (and DH at the same time a year later) from mid-October through early January and it was MISERABLY cold and snowy. One morning, we had to (near literally) wear everything in our lockers because it was 51 below with the windchill (coming off the lake). We both agree that we'd have much rather been there in the spring!
As one Navy mom to another, I welcome you. As mentioned, you will be extremely impressed with the change in your son in the next 8-9 weeks. These next few weeks of silence will be the hardest on you. Once you get that first letter, life will start looking up.
