Proud Momma Moments

In hindsight, it seems it was a little prophetic that my son joined the Army Reserves.  When he was a freshman in high school, he and I were in a thrift store one day, when an Army recruiter approached him, thinking he was older than he was, and handed him a business card and encouraged him to consider the Army after high school.  At the time, I didn’t give it a second thought – it seemed so far away.

Fast forward six years, and he is officially a US Army soldier.  He plans to return to college in the fall to finish his business degree, while serving in the Reserves.

We were able to spend 2 days with him to celebrate his graduation from basic training, before he goes on to finish his specific training for his job in the Army.

My parents were able to attend his graduation as well, and I absolutely love this photo I got of him walking with his grandma.  It reminds me of when he was little, and held her hand when they walked together.

Mugshot of me with my handsome soldier son.

I feel very blessed to have 4 wonderful kids!
