heart hurting at the moment, but swelling with pride...



Our baby bird has just flown from the edge of the nest. I know her wings are strong enough....at the moment, my heart isn't.
Today the Navy recruiter took her to Denver for the MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station)...she will be staying there and tomorrow we will go to Denver and see her 'Swearing In' (Oath of Office) before she flies to Chicago. I know it will be a surreal experience as I stood in the very same place (Denver) 21 years ago and did the very same thing.
..and following in her Daddy's footsteps...hard to believe they will BOTH be in the Navy at the same time....
