Hi, sa2rasmth! Our son departs GL on May 12th for South Carolina. We are so excited for the 11th...his 19th birthday is the 6th. Are you attending any of the meet and greets? We will be at the Sarge's meet and greet. Congrats on your youngest graduating HS...our SR is our youngest :)
No letter fron IL with address. Or PIR date yet. Am excited to get it and tear through the mail every day. I am excited to send him letters and have a date to plan the trip for....just so it is before May 25 when my youngest grads from hs!
Well, we got the box today. I did not realize it would be so quick. Was so excited that he wrote a letter on the plane and wadded it into a tiny ball that looked like trash and put in his pocket. It was good to hear they had a good trip and made it out just before the storms. He said they saw a beautiful sunset on the plane....I always tried to make them notice little things like that growing up so glad it stuck. He was also excited that they got to pick where to eat in the airport during their long wait at DFW and it was paid for...he was excited to not have to part with any of his cash yet. Hope you are doing well, and I wanted you to know they had a good trip.
