Tuesday we said goodbye to Bryce. he was sworn into the US Navy. I am so proud of him, but it hurts my heart to say goodbye to my baby, my firstborn. I have never done this before so I am not sure if this is what all parents go through when a child leaves home or if it is because he is going into an unknown for me.
I do not come from a military family. My blogger friends Nick and Michelle have taught me a lot about military life and I have such a he respect for them to be able to sacrifice and say goodbye to your spouse for months on end. I have watched what they have gone through. My Dad was a draft dodger, so military has always been a bad word in our home- so when Bryce decided he wanted to do this my heart swelled.
He will do great- this is an adventure for him. He loves the physical aspect- I wish I was there the first time he tells his Chief that he does not feel like doing something- lol
I feel like I belong to a whole new family now and it is very emotional- I think he will graduate August 24th- can't wait to see the man he has become.
