Received eight letters from our DD after we returned home from our week long vacation today. She wanted to feel, in some small way, feminine during BCT so she had a pedicure on the Tuesday prior to I day painting her toenails bright orange. For some reason, she thought her toenails would be immune from inspection from her cadre....wrong assumption. They were issued flip flops and the evil toenails were spotted immediately and held up as a bad example to the rest of the flight. She said she was told to scrape them with a knife but was given a reprieve to find her own solution. I guess the lesson is, don't get any ideas on feeling feminine during BCT. Everything else is just swell! Having a great time at Camp BCT...toughest test so far in her young life. Extremely difficult but manageable. Suddenly, she is enjoying church much more than she had in the past and a lot of my minute lectures are being recalled with great clarity after drawing shrugs and yawns just a couple of weeks ago. One thing is clear, she loves her squad mates and the quality of their character....awsome!
