My son has been gone two weeks today (sniff, sniff). It was really tough to start with, but the family briefing packet the recruiter gave us the day he left has been a great comfort. It helps me to know what he's doing from day to day. The letter the senior drill instructor sent made things even better. He pulled me out of my funk and put me into a more patriotic mood so I decided to make another card to send to boot camp. Here it is. :)
I kind of wish I had sponged the edges with brown instead of blue, but it's too late for recriminations now. ;) It still turned out really cute.
