Spring break comes to an end... at least for DS and his three midshipman buddies who returned from their week of skiing with Mom last night and headed back to South Carolina this morning. It was fun watching the squad leaders who were present this morning updating their Platoon Sergeant, who was also present, on who had already returned to school and who hadn't yet. And the other Platoon Sergeant who was present was taking phone updates. The midshipmen went party hopping at Wolfpack frats last night with DS and his girlfriend. Needless to say the Gamecocks were unimpressed... which I guess would be expected of any school vs another. No injuries were suffered on the ski trip, other than some sunburn. A good time was had by all, except Mom, who I think got a little irritated with young men who just wanted to chill and weren't too concerned about the appearance of their bedrooms and eating habits over break. I doubt she'll be taking on that challenge again, not that I think the opportunity will come up. Next Spring Break will be too close to OCS to risk ski trips. Can't wait for the "real" ski trip update from DS while Mom is not around. I understand she was a little abrasive. Welcome to my world!
