A quick update on Sean!!

HAPPY MONDAY!!! It was a super spectacular Monday (after work)....I got my phone back from repair, got the refund check from our apartment, AND GOT ANOTHER LETTER FROM SEAN!  He seems to be doing really well :)  He spent last week doing rope courses and obstacle course type things, teamwork challenges, land navigation and "camping".  He was also made a squad leader :)  Probably one of the highlights for him would be getting his gun issued :)  A low....the gas chamber.  NO FUN.  I also learned in his letter that his company may graduate a week early!  Which is good for him, but bad for me and his mom since was already booked a hotel room for the week after.  Oh well.  Guess well just adapt.  I wont complain if I get to see my husband a week early.  I MISS HIM LIKE CRAZY! 
Anywho, that is most of what I could read from Sean's letter.  His handwriting is worse than normal, but I guess I'll let him slide :P

Always Forward!

2 weeks in...So far so good!  I got my first letter from Sean on Wednesday!!  He seems to be doing good, and getting into routine.  Today his company was sent through the gas chamber...I'm sure that was a blast.  Or not.   There are some pictures posted on Facebook, but I didn't see any of Sean (not sure I would want to honestly).  It sucks not being able to see or talk to him everyday...but only about 60 days until graduation!!  Our hotel rooms are already booked, and I am so excited to see my husband graduate!!  I am so proud :) 
Hopefully this Sunday I will get a phone a dummy I left my phone alone for 2 seconds last Sunday, and that's when he called.  There was much cursing involved. 
Anywho, if you would like to send Sean mail at BCT, please email me or msg me on Facebook for the address. 

60 days to go....ALWAYS FORWARD!

I'm a day late posting this, but as of yesterday, Sean is officially at boot camp.  It was hard to say goodbye, but I know I'll see him soon. Time flies!!
Anywho, here are some random pictures from our Florida trip as well as a few we took shortly before our goodbyes.

Stacey and I got to hang out with horses after we got our hair done :)

Today is the day...

2 months went by waaaayyyyy to quickly!!  At 4pm I have to drive Sean to the MEPS hotel to check in.  After that he can check out and we can go get some dinner before the final goodbye :(  In other news, my awesome friend Lucia, of Jason Angelini Photography, got our pictures up on their blog so Sean got to see some them before he left!  We can't wait to see the rest :) 
Here are some of my faves...

I am super proud of my husband, and can't wait to see him graduate BCT and OCS!!  And thanks to all of our friends and family for helping us get to this point.  XOXO
