    Rumor has it that 2013 is being Recognized as I am writing this. Hope so, and congrats to 2013.

    Oh my! I do hope you're right! That would be so fantastic! (Now I'll try to tamp down my enthusiasm in case it's just another rumor . . . )

    Is the fact that the waterfront web cam is not showing pictures in real time any indication?

    2KPsons, Somehow the tone of your "have fun with Sea Year LOL" is like a litttle gray cloud passing over my sunny day . . . Is it that bad?

    Sea Year is fantastic, don't misunderstand me. But for the parents, we do end up with a few more gray hairs than we started with. :)

    CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2013!

    Can anyone say what Recognition Day consists of (without giving too much away for next year's class)?

    Just wondering, is it physical or ceremonial, etc.

    Thanks!

    All the pictures I've seen of Recognition (from prior years) show midshipmen wearing boiler suits covered in mud or shaving cream doing push-ups and the like. But they are all SMILING in the pictures, so whatever it is, they're happy to be doing it!
