After talking with some great Momdot military wives and some girlfriends. I am able to just relax and see what happens. Paul has a few more phases to go with before the military accepts him. I am sure he will do just fine. I am really proud of him.
These woman have no idea how much their input has helped me be supportive of him. I at first looked at him like a deer caught in headlights. You want to do what? Are you kidding?
Then I think of my Dad. He enlisted in 91. I have found some pictures of family fun day and my boys asking where we were. I told them what my brothers and I were doing. One of my favorite pictures is of my sister and I we were in the cockpit of the helicopter and it looked like we were driving but you could see how happy all of us were.
I do have to tell you when we went yesterday to talk some more with the recruiter Nate walked in like he owned the place and greeted them with “Hello Army” I have never seen huge grown men laugh as hard as these two Sargent Williams and Dawson did.Sargent Dawson immediately hooked Nate up with some army swag. He rocked it.
I got up this morning with a spring in my step and just felt relaxed for the first time in a long time. It is nice to have a plan and a back up plan if for some reason he isn’t accepted in. It is almost like a whole new world of possibilities have been opened up to us.
The kids have been behaving pretty well.So I think tomorrow we will take them for breakfast and if it warms up some more exploring. They love that part.I love that it tires them out!They keep talking of going back and seeing family. They miss my brothers greatly. They don’t seem to care.
I will be filling out some paperwork for Paul so they can read it. He has the worlds worst handwriting.
