YEAH! I finally got a letter from DS. Yes, it was a form letter I sent him to fill in the blanks and he did. Also gave him extra room for comments and he did. I cried after I got it cause he actually sent it back. In it he said he kept a journal, which I knew he did, and he mailed it to me so I could read it before Thanksgiving. Gotta love that boy. Now, I will have his daily thoughts. I am so blessed. On top of that, he was able to get on the computer today and talk to his sister. I am glad he did. I didn't get to talk to him cause my husband and I were traveling back so this was a special time just for the two of them. If you knew how close they were growing up, you would understand. I am glad they both got time just for each other. YEAH! Things he said: best time of the day: Breakfast and endless supply of peanut butter with apples or bananas. Worst thing: cleaning every 5 minutes. The day he answered his letter, he stated that he didn't write in his journal cause he had 21 letters to read. I guess he didn't get them everyday. He is also thinking of joining the rifle club and possibly the sailing club or Martial arts. He also thanked me for making the letter simple as simple is best.
