The Dream is Getting Closer

Today my son received some very awesome news.  He has been accepted to the United States Naval Academy Summer Seminar. My son applied the day the applications opened and has been eagerly awaiting the news. He literally jumped up and down for joy when he found out he had been accepted.  This brings him one step closer to realizing his dream of attending the Naval Academy.  He has wanted to go there ever since he was a little boy.  His room is filled with Naval History books and he had his sights on going there long before my older daughter even thought of applying. When his sister got in, people asked my son if he would be following in her footprints.  He said something like - No, she is following mine - she just got there first. Seriously, he has had his eye on attending a service academy for so long.  To think that this little boy
who was there to watch his Grandpa give his sister the oath for her induction into the United States Naval Academy.
And was there four years later as she received her graduation diploma

and commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps
is now one step closer to his own dreams coming true. 
We are all so proud of you!
Even the doodle doggies say, "WAY TO GO!"
