After Aaron's graduation we were able to spend the weekend catching up with him.
Unlike many graduates who had to fly out the next morning, Aaron will be staying put for months of training. As a result, we had the whole weekend with him.
And we had a surprise for him! Gotta love surprises (the good kind, anyway!)!
My parents were able to fly in to join us all!
Not only would they be there to celebrate with Aaron, but they were able to meet Joshua in person for the first time instead of just on Skype!
His sisters and Joshua were so anxious to see him again, with Anna Grace confessing to my dad that she was so nervous to see Aaron and hoped she would know what to say to him! The reunion was sweet and everyone was quite impressed with Aaron's uniform and hat.
We spent the weekend listening to Aaron's Boot Camp stories...
Shopping for electronics for Aaron and taking him to see The Hobbit.
The time went by much too quickly, but was so memorable!
Very hard to leave him Sunday evening...heartbreaking really. At least now I can text or talk to him daily! And not one of them will have to be a reminder to make his bed! The Navy does that for me now!
