It was a long drive to Army Son's graduation but we made it!
We had to be briefed about all the could and could nots.
Finally we got to see our solider! Littlest was so happy to see his big brother again.
Army son looks great! He is having a very successful time!
The first day our pass only allowed us to spend time with our soldier on the base. But we found wonderful places to share our time together. Army son wanted to run me through his PT.
Unfortunately I had not brought wokout gear onto the post.
The following day was the graduation. It was a very nice ceremony. We enjoyed lunch with several other soliders and their families. The stories they told and the fathers joined in. It was a great time.
Our soliders missed the oddest things. After a long lunch they wanted to go to WalMart. Go figure!
But all too quickly it was over. And we had the mad rush to get out soldier back to the base.
I was very sad even though I was completely happy for him and beyond proud I was still struggling with some tears. I guess that is why I forgot my ID to get back on base. Ekkk!
After a sprint back to the hotel to ID we drove like crazy to the base.
On E! We were on fumes but made it in time for Army son to make formation.
We found diesel just of post and realized the Army son had forgot somethings.
Yipee. We got to go back and give them to him. Luckily we didn't get him in trouble and all was well.
With a few tears.
The next morning was rough after the emotional roller coaster but we got on the road for a long drive.
We got tired of driving so littlest took his turn too.
Before I was even home Army son sent us a quick shot of his new location. He is so excited and ready to take on the next leg of his journey.
Not much running was had the last 3 days and I don't know if I will get it in today but I feel like my time was well spent and my heart was exercised.
Just in a different way.
