This morning at 10:15 we dropped Patrick off for boot camp. He will be traveling from Dalton, GA to Knoxville, TN today, and tomorrow will go from Knoxville to Parris Island to begin this new journey. Goodbyes were very difficult all around. I know the kids don't really understand yet, but that will come I'm sure especially with Charles. The first thing he asked when we came back without Patrick was "were is daddy"?We would really appreciate your prayers for Patrick and our family. Life sure is going to be different for the next 13 weeks. The count down to April 3 will begin as soon as I get my short phone call saying he is at boot.
