Seth is still in infantry training in North Carolina. He graduates mid-November and will continue with school/training in Virginia of all places! I'm glad he will be in driving distance for a visit now and then. Seth is really enjoying the training. All those years of playing **Army** (I use that term loosely since he is a Marine, not a soldier) and watching old 1960s episodes of Combat have really paid off.
On the weekends, this is what we get to do.
He told us he was heading out on Monday morning at 2:00 am for a 13 mile hike with an 85 pound pack on his back. That is kind of like carrying Eva and Joy on his back all the way to into town. No thank you! That is why he is the Marine and I am not.
It is crazy to see him looking like this...with real weapons and body armor. Kind of makes me nervous. Lord protect him, please.
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
