Today's the day!
Posted By: Lisa Tolson 11-01-10
Our son leaves for Parris Island today... what a mix of emotions! Pride and anxiety swirl in my stomach! I know he will do fine, but it's always hard to watch your kids go into the unknown... knowing you can't protect them or make everything alright anymore. He's a good boy with a great life in front of him...it's just hard as a mom to say goodbye and know I won't see him for 13 weeks. But, the caravan is already forming for that trip to graduation...and we know it will be a great day...ooohrah! Good luck son...we are so proud of the man you are becoming!
