    I can't even explain the pride I feel right now. From the time I woke up yesterday morning knowing I was going to finally see my son, to landing back home in San Diego, the intense flow of emotions are indescribable.... The tears of joy overwhelming at times. Just seeing him looking so well in himself and knowing what he'd just accomplished made it all worth it. Never mind what he went through getting there, HE DID IT and he's a better person for it.

    And to his CC's and instructors (you know who you are), THANK YOU for turning my son into a Guardian I can be proud of!

    For those of you still waiting for boot camp dates, or waiting for loved ones... your time will come and you will be so proud!

    Awww, thanks Shepherd! He's talked very highly of you as well. I hope you two can keep in touch and maybe get stationed somewhere together some day.

    Best wishes to you and your sweet wife. Tell her I said hello!

    Oh,...... were you suprised when your brother showed up to graduation?

    Lollipop,

    Congrats on the big day!!! I know that sense of pride you are feeling. Isn't it just amazing! :) Colin was non-stop running the 5 days he was home. There was none of that sleeping late, long shower thing, he couldn't see enough of his friends and family. It was funny how much we kept that child moving and he never complained about it once.

    Enjoy the couple of days you have left... then start planning that trip to Kodiak! :)

    Those first days home are so short. And Scotty did take a bath and then went and did all the running around. I had my final exam the Monday after graduation and so I had to study while he got to go hang out with our friends and when he came home we was always like, " oh I went here and did this and hung out with so and so and..." I would have to tell him to slow down and I love you but I am studing. Enjoy it while it lasts. But remember that they earn 2.5 days a month and eventually they will be able to use it.

    I was so freakin surprised lollipop. I freakin cried haha. it was good though. I had no clue. I hope we get stationed together too. Then when we're 65 we're starting a dry cleaning business together. (ask him about it)

    I, too, am completely overwhelmed with pride. It went so fast and I can't believe that tomorrow we start our journey to Oregon!
    Lollipop, it was so great meeting you and your family! Apparently I need to ask about that dry cleaning business too because this is the first time I'm hearing about it. Lol
