Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

This I'll Miss

Last week, Seth found out that he got his first choice MOS (military job).  He will be part of the Marine Security Force.  I did not know much about it, but I was just thankful that he did not go straight infantry as he had planned.  Nothing against it, but this mom did not feel good about it.  So, when I heard him hoot rather loudly, I knew something good had happened.  So, I did lots of googling.  Not only did I search Security Force, I searched FAST Marines.  FAST stands for "Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Team".   This is actually the one that Seth is hoping to become part of (it is overseas).  It sounds scary, but interesting.  After hours online, I figured out that these groups of guys are the ones that go in and secure an area of our nations' interests...like an embassy, a military base,  a Navy ship...things of that nature, after an attack or disaster.  I read that this FAST team went to Panama, Saudi Arabia (after the bombings), Middle East after the attack on the USS Cole, and quite a few other places.  Apparently, they are not in one place too long.  They go, get control, and move on. 

Since Seth has not graduated high school yet, we have not been given a date for his departure.  I am sure I'll know something after the new year and his graduation, which is in January.  In the meantime, I've been thinking about Seth's life.  There are so many things I can write about him.  So many heartaches we shared and lessons learned  But, for now I know I'll miss sweet moments.when he takes time out of his busy life and just hangs out and enjoys his family.
