    DS received Congressional (MD 7) nomination to US Naval Academy and US Air Force Academy. He has LOA from Navy and is medically cleared. I hope I can put him in bubble wrap during lacrosse season. :thumb:

    congratulations!

    congratulations! It's really news. I don't know which district we are in. The congresswoman is Ms.Donna Edwards. My son still hasn't heard anything yet.

    I believe Edwards is district 5 and I don't know of any noms from that district

    Hopefully she will let you know soon.

    Tell me about it. DS is accepting his appointment offer at USCGA, yet we still have lacrosse season to contend with. Nothing like playing a sport where they beat each other with metal sticks to keep us parents worried!

    I'll just have to keep my hands in the prayer position until the end of the lacrosse season.

    Nice to see that I'm not the only one concerned about lacrosse season coming!
    Like you, DS has LOA and nom (unbelievable Christmas present) and now get to watch the combatants go at. Couldn't talk him out of it, as he's a captain and they'll be going after a conference companionship with a strong team. (I suggested surfing the web to see if we could find full suit light weight body armor!). We got through football season with just a few dings so hoping for the same.

    Best to all on this Christmas Eve!:thumb:

    Yes we got through football season as well and I couldnt convince him to forego lacrosse. This will be a nerve racking season for me. He, on the other hand, will just be having fun as usual.
