Site For Sore Eyes...

Richard and I drove to Fort Benning, GA Friday to attend Bryce's graduation from Recruit Training Saturday. The plan was that we would spend a few hours with him and then deliver him back for the advanced training (another 10 days). We couldn't have any 2-way communication, but I received a letter Friday that made it clear...he didn't want to stay for the extra 10 days. Fine by me! When we saw him Saturday, he was in much better spirits. The letter had been written on a very bad day, and he was actually considering staying. In the end, we brought him back with us! Which made this mama very happy!! I have decided that I am NOT ready for him to graduate and go off to college. We missed him so much around here while he was gone!!

They are so handsome in their uniforms!!

Pretty sure PB Teen has those lockers :) You could sure make his day with one (and bonus, he could take it to his dorm room!)

Glad he decided to come home with you!! LOVE the pictures you took of their graduation! So stately! I cant believe they have to grow up - were we warned about this?

have a greta time today - cant wait to see Wesleigh's dress :)
