My future Marine and some De-Stressers...

What a cold, rainy weekend we had here. Was suppose to be a "Kid Free" weekend but Matt played sick and did not go this his Dads. We slept late Saturday, cleaned the house a little then Matt and I went shopping. Yup, a mother and son day. We haven't had one of those in so long.

So tomorrow, Tuesday, April 17th the Marines are having their annual family day. Drill Sargents from Parris Island will be there and the future Marines will be able to show us what they have learned in their Delayed Entry Program. It also gives the parents the opportunity to ask the Drill Sargents questions. I will post about this on Wednesday. I really looking forward to it.

Matt will have to continue his monthly pool until he leaves in July. Here Matt's graduation pic... my future Marine.

Here are a few "De-Stressers" for the day... I immediately thought of Mrs. Bee when I saw this one...

and finally....

Your son is hot. Slap a uniform on him and the ladies had better watch out :-)

Yup Mrs. Bee... you were the first person I thought of when I saw the cartoon.

Thanks Angell, I think he's rather handsome myself... As soon as I find that diner, I'll let you know and we can go together.

Thanks Skittles...he has turned into a fine young man.

Kleenix...oh my...that was funny...

He's a good looking young Marine.

And write down your questions. I've heard about this family day. The DI's are really informative and you'll learn a lot about what Matt will be doing.

It sounds like a really great day.
