So anyone have big plans this weekend?
We have a full schedule starting tonight. Kyle is on the drum line for his high school band and they have their opening game tonight against their biggest rival. We will be there to cheer them on. Once upon a time we had a band member and a football player to cheer for at this game each year. Now that football player is a Soldier. We still cheer for him but not from the endzone.
Saturday, Devin has catcher's training and then a birthday party to attend. He has a friend spending the weekend so I doubt there will be much rest. And Sunday, my husband Mo and I have volunteered to help with the Freedom Walk that Operation Home Front is sponsoring. You can click on the link and see if there is a walk in your area.
I am also proud to announce that I am now a member of Blue Star Mothers of America. I am so honored to be a part of this organization. If you do not know the history of this group, go to their site and check it out.
I have been a bit frustrated (to put it mildly) today because we received a letter from Christopher and he said he had not gotten any mail. Excuse me? I write to him every day and I know that other's have written to him also. I was furious, I just knew that the mean ol Drill Sergeants were withholding his mail. I threatened to go to Ft. Knox and have a talk with these DS's. But thanks to some wonderful parents at GAP, I have been talked down off the ledge and now that I have calmed down I realized that we just got his address last Wednesday. I mailed his first letters on Thursday and Monday was a holiday. He wrote this letter on Sunday so there is no way that he could have received letters by then. I guess it just seems like he has been gone forever. He seemed a little down and swears he is starving. Way to put mom at ease there Christopher. LOL
GAP has been a lifesaver for me. Once you become a member there you become family. There is always someone that has been where you are at that moment and they are quick to answer your questions and there to let you know that they and their children survived this part and so will you and yours.
I hope everyone remembered to wear their red today. I will have mine on.
