Has everyone recovered from December's stress - overload?
January is pretty busy for our family and come February things will lighten up just a wee bit... so I'll probably go into full stalking mode round the mail box sometime in that month.
Darling son has a rock solid conviction that God is sovereign and while the Academy is by far his first choice, he has an excellent Plan B lined up and for that I am grateful.
At this point, I guess he has done all he can do... and just has to wait and see.
I'm much less patient than he is. But, I am going to have to change my ways... I have 5 more kiddos to go before my nest is empty. I'm going to have to learn to be more like he is and RELAX and remember God is in control.
Now he is encouraging two of his best friends who are juniors to apply for AIM. He hopes to populate the ranks with good men that he knows and trusts, I guess! Ha Ha One of his buddies enlisted last year and is stationed in Texas ---- and he LOVES the Coast Guard. It is all good.
Well the good news is that son's college transcripts have been received. The less than stellar news is that we can expect a wait of 1-2 months
Oh well. I guess we'll (his dad and I) hunker down and be patient. Son is too busy with crew, new semester approaching and enjoying our unseasonably warm Cali winter. I think he's been to the beach more this winter than all of last summer! Hope those of you in the colddddd states are hanging in there! If son does land in New London he will have some serious adjusting to do!
time/temp display. The lovely fountain downtown was frozen and we shivered as we drove by.
Son said, "It is sure cold."
I said, "Ah, t'would be a warm day in New London!"
