We got back yesterday from visiting our daughter for Plebe Parents weekend. It was wonderful! She is healthy minus the stress fractures in her shins. It is AMAZING what they have done to help her: MRI, dye to see exactly the level of the stress fractures...She will be fine - just some time and ice. I thought she would be ready to crash when we got there. Nope, she wanted to go see a movie! We saw Lucy - very cool movie. She got a mani/pedi, eye brows waxed. She did take a nap - one on Saturday and another on Sunday, but they were pretty short. She really wanted to visit DC but we discouraged this due to all the walking. We rented a great house in Eastport that was close to President's point and she took a water taxi Saturday night from there to the main circle (ego row) and had ice cream with a few of her friends before their cinderella liberty ended. Friday night she was so concerned about being late - she was easily an hour early. They are all "ready" for academic year to start - I think more for Plebe summer to end. She did great on shooting! Got expert in pistol and sharpshooter for rifle. She eats like she has a hallow leg! (Glad the Navy is feeding her now!) Oddly enough, it was harder to leave her this time than on I-Day. It didn't hit me until we were walking onto the campus. I wasn't sad, I was proud and happy and thrilled. It was a bit emotional. She did say earlier on the last day - "I don't know how I got done what I got done in HS with my room and car such a mess." I'm surprised I have a tongue, I bit it so hard!
