Our family was out to dinner tonight with our mid, recalling a year ago; the up in the air feeling we all had about whether or not DS would get an appointment to the USNA. It has been a year of ups and downs, blessings, and new friendships. For those of you who helped us through the time when DS broke his ankle and I was crying on this forum, thank you and God bless. For those of you who are in our place now, keep the faith. Happy New year to all of you and thank you for the support of the wonderful people on this site. I could not have made it through this year without you.
