My son leaves for boot camp Aug. 4th. It is very bittersweet. I am so proud of him but am really going to miss him. The hardest part will be not getting to talk to him everyday. He is an amazing kid, never been in trouble, made good grades and active in sports. He has said since he was 4 that he was going into the Military. I am very happy for him but sad also. He calls me at least daily when I am work just to tell me to have a great day. I am really going to miss that. I am also going to miss having a house full of football boys here all the time. Any suggestions on how to get through it. I am also worried about his 13 yr old sister. We have plans to keep busy but I know it will sneak up on us when we aren't expecting it.
