After 2 months of Navy Boot Camp, Aaron graduated yesterday!
It was a very significant moment for all of us. And, yes, I was teary...again.
God was gracious to us and allowed us to have seats in the front row right in front of his division.

Because he was one of the 3 tallest in his division, he was all the way in the back...but I could still see him, and he me.
The photos above & below were taken before he assumed his position in the back row.
Love the military posture!
As an 'Army brat' I have been a guest at countless military ceremonies. This is by far the most memorable and significant for me.
We found Aaron quickly and hugged his neck and observed that he not only is skinnier, but seems taller! The military posture...must stand nice and tall!
Picture below was taken on my phone, hence blurry!

We are so thankful for this milestone in Aaron's life and even more thankful to be here to share in it with him. He is obviously pleased with his choice to join the Navy and the decorum and attention to detail that he displays are a blessing to see.
Thankful for and proud of our son, our sailor!
