Big night tonight, DS officially accepted his USAFA appointment and declined those to USNA and USMA. Weird range of emotions. He's always wanted USAFA first but it was still hard for him to click the decline button and he grieved a little over what could have been all the while celebrating his decision and his future. Strange exciting times! Siblings were not at all surprised by the choice and are confused by his mix of emotions, but as a parent and an adult I get it. Adult decisions, even with all good choices, can be difficult. He would love to attend them all But knowing that's not a possibility he was ready to have the decision done and he did not want to hold on to a spot he was not going to use for too long. I was proud of him too, he called his BGO first, before he declined Navy, because he has been so helpful. Another tough adult thing, he hates letting people down. Go AF!
