    Just thought I'd reach out to see if there are any other Aggie parents out there and to see how their kiddos have been doing during FOW. Our DD called last night after being off the grid since Saturday and said, "How come you never taught me how to make a bed??!??!" I was proud of myself that I was able to wait until after we hung up to laugh about that one. What she doesn't remember is when I was teaching her how to make a bed growing up, she said, "I'll never have to make it perfect like that , Mom!" LOL:rolleyes:

    Well, I am a parent with an Aggie cadet at the other end of the spectrum. My son is a senior in the Corps this year. It really seems like just yesterday he was slogging through FOW himself (though I'm sure it doesn't to him!). It was a shock to his system regardless of how prepared he thought he was. It's supposed to be. Assure your daughter that thousands of kids have gotten through it and so will she.

    My son did comment to me when I talked to him this past weekend that this is the most enthusiastic, competent fish class he has experienced during his time at A&M so far. I guess it reflects how truly competitive trying to get into the military has become and what exceptional students are taking that course.

    Good luck to her and Gig 'em!

    Thanks so much for your post! This is all new to us and having insight from someone who has "been there, done that" is so helpful. I have to agree, I thought the kids (fish) looked so excited/nervous/eager when I dropped her off on Wednesday. I do feel like they think they have won the lottery getting into the Corps @ A&M. At least, that's how it looked to me. It also eased my mind to see so many young women that day.
