Back to South Carolina

Oct
7


Yesterday, I flew to South Carolina. Today, I’m attending Ross’s Navy Nuclear Power Training School graduation! What a long road this has been! I’m SO proud of Ross. Power School is one of the Navy’s toughest schools. I will be driving home with Ross tomorrow, and he’ll be in West Virginia for two weeks. (Yay!) When he returns to South Carolina, he will complete another round of school, Nuclear Prototype, which is more of a hands-on school than the brutally intense and academic Power School, and it is the final frontier. When he finishes prototype, he will be assigned to a submarine and go to work.


See ya tomorrow back in WV!

    This is so great. :snoopy: For Ross to KNOW that he can get through a tough physical and then a tough academic program like this is really special. I’m sure it gives him a confidence that he didn’t have before. Our hats are off to you both.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
