I talked to Christopher for a few minutes last night and since he is still doing his In Processing, he will not have a full work day until next Monday. So I asked him what he did with his time in between paperwork and equipment issue.
Yesterday he spent a good bit of his time sitting on top of a humvee involved in a snow ball fight and then the rest of the afternoon he helped build snowmen. LOL
I am so glad that he is finally able to relax and have some fun. He was so tense after OSUT and I was worried that he would take awhile to adjust to being away from home. He has made several new friends and is even spending Saturday with some of the other Cav Scouts learning to snow board. Should I be worried?
I know that they have several training trip's coming up in the new year to prepare them for deployment towards the end of 2009 so I guess I will just keep my mouth shut and let him enjoy what down time he will have.
Have a great Thursday
