89 days

89 days. <3 span="">
Our son leaves for Marine boot camp,
and his feet hit these yellow footprints.
A recruit.
Life will never be the same again.

For any of us.

89 days.
He spends training to become a Marine.
Leadership, discipline, brotherhood.
No longer the boy we raised, but a hero,
a Marine.

This former MN ARNG SSG momma also earns a new
title and becomes the Mother of a Marine.
A brand new #MoM.
89 days x 2.

Life will never be the same again.
His decision to serve our Country blows me away.
We couldn't be more proud.

Once Upon a Time...

...there was a little boy that called me Mom.

He was a big brother to Henry and Oliver, who both looked upon him with adoration.

I haven't heard from him in over a year, but I will be sending good wishes and prayers his way today.

Happy 24th Birthday, my son.

Did I tell you?

That Henry's enlisted in the Delayed Entry Program (DEP) for joining the Marines?

This future MoM is doing all she can to prepare mentally while Henry (and fellow Poolees) prepare physically!
