he left a civilian and came back a soldier

I went to sleep on the wrong side of the bed last night.
Eric's side.

Woke up on the wrong side, too.

That's weird. I hate that side of the bed.

Just a small taste of what it will be like when he leaves for 3 Fast Sundays.

Yes, Fast Sundays. That's what I'm counting it in. There are only 3 of those.

Anyways, Eric got home from his first training a couple of hours ago. He said he actually had a lot of fun; all yelling aside!! He actually really already was a soldier when he left, by the way, he just didn't have a uniform. That kinda made it official. Anyways, here's our husband, father, son, brother, friend, and American Soldier in his ACU's (don't even ask me what that stands for, I have no idea what half of the acronyms are. But I do know that whole alphabet AND the stripes he has to memorize so he knows how to identify all of the commanding officers :)

So what are the dates that Eric will be at Fort Sill? Janet told me he would be there from May through August but I didn't get exact dates. Will you be coming down when he graduates? I am in Africa right now but will be back at Fort Sill around the middle of June. I was thinking maybe we could have a family reunion around the time that he graduated if family was already planning to be there. Let me know what you think about this. Uncle James
