Saturday, our 86 days till our son leaves, was beautiful, sunny, and warm. Gary was woke up with me screaming out that we had overslept and to get up Right NOW! We had not missed our alarm, but a small sliver of morning light had worked it’s way through the curtain and woke me up. We showered, then made coffee, and went out the door to take Alexander to his poolee function.
Our morning was all about mowing and trimming our large front and back yard. Then we sat and drank iced tea and planned where to place all the pots of dirt and seeds. Usually, we have a large garden in the back yard. But, since we will move, we decided to pot everything and take them with us. There are so many changes getting ready to happen in all of our live’s, all to be seen as exciting. From large to small, but exciting nonetheless.
We left early to sit and wait for our son to get done and I could hear their Military Cadence (googled this,just was calling it their running songs). I am so new to everything military related that I ask Alex questions and I google a lot! He is very patient as he explains and some times repeats. He is very intelligent and has always told me in detail what he learns every day. I know I will miss this sharing and learning time with him very much.
Came back home to a full house. Four of our nine grandbabies were here. You would think a 17 year old, almost gone to the marine’s, senior in high school, would flee to his room to get away from little one’s. No. He stayed with all of us till they left at 11:00 that night, then stayed up to watch The Hobbit as he promised with all of us. I went to bed at midnight so I felt like the 86th day till, was spent well right down to the last.
These Days Posts are not being shared because they are spectacular thrill-filled days or nights, but are just being shared to show our love and pride for our son, who will become a man, who will be a Marine, who will protect each and every one of us. Jennifer
