A hard weekend

Monday, September 09, 2013

Yesterday I had to say good bye to my baby boy for a year while he serves in Guantanamo Bay. there are far worse places to be, but it was still hard. He's never been more than a few hundred miles from home before- just while he was in school and every break he'd come home.

I know it'll get easier but this is harder than I thought it would be. I'm glad I was there along with his father, sisters and girlfriend. We all sent off his battle buddy also, his family couldn't make the trip.

Be safe my little boy.

Thank you to our troops!
