Oh, DS also said burpees should replace the basketball throw
DS had a blast!
PT was just like what he does at home, and his squat form was used as an example to the group. Way to stand out, bum out. Hah.
Classes were as expected. Food was, too. He loved seeing Tecumseh in person all dressed for the home opener.
His plebe host had YP duty during the parade, so, oh darn, he got his first sail.
At dinner last night he said he felt like he belonged, but out of place not being in uniform. That sealed the deal with him on his desire to obtain an appointment.
His hosts were kind and informative and hauled in half a dozen company mates to chat with him about their experiences and how best to manage time, handle girlfriends and leaving home, etc. His plebe host tried to give him the "why you should come to Navy" talk but they said he didn't need it. He said the brotherhood feeling was real, tangible and exactly what he is looking for. Kudos to the guys for giving of their free time to do that with my kid.
I thought he was motivated before, this weekend really proved his desire for a challenging opportunity to grow and lead.
