Just received word that DS is safe and sound back in Chase Hall. Red eye + train ride + cab = one tired cadet, but he is "home". We were not sure what to expect with having him back in the nest after six months at CGA, but man were we pleased. He irons, he polishes shoes, he takes care of his laundry, and has generally grown up a whole bunch. CGA really did do in 18 minutes what we, his parents, couldn't do in 18 years! My one complaint (and it is one that I would never give voice to, save here on this message board!) is that he reverted back to the sloppy room syndrome of years past. His room looked like a tornado blew through! With all the growth in the other areas, I'll take the messy room. For those who are heading out THIS YEAR biggrin you are in for a great experience. For the parents who are sending their kids, I cannot say enough about how well cared for our son is. Well fed, well cared for, well guided. While it was hard to say goodbye last night, we knew that he was going back where he wanted and needs to be. Happy 2010 CGA family. It's been a great ride so far, and this family cannot wait to see what comes next.
