The First Day
Posted By: Jennifer Smith 01-23-12
I have just arrived home from watching my son take a van from Fort Lee to Parris Island today. He was so happy- like a little boy on his birthday! I just received "the call" as I am typing this and it is only 8:30 PM! He sounded confident, excited and HAPPY! I expected him to sound scared and exhausted. Great beginning and peace of mind!
