And the last of the Goodbyes

My son has a good friend that has been a major part of our life for the past 5-6 years. When he was in 7th grade, he pretty much became part of our family.  I always say that he is our "adopted" son.  Tonight is his last night as a civilian.  Tomorrow morning he reports to Parris Island for Boot Camp.  He has had a hard road in life and he has turned into the most amazing young man.  He will be an excellent Marine.  He is pretty nervous, but I know he will do an awesome job.  The Marine Corps is lucky to have him. We had a big farewell dinner for him tonight and Mr. Yesteryear Acres made his favorite meal - a nice big steak dinner.  I made some homemade rolls to go with the big dinner and of course we have homemade ice cream for dessert.  My son came home from college for the farewell dinner and to say his goodbyes.  We are all going to miss him.
Dear Adopted Son, We will be here when you graduate with a big hug and a huge meal and all the things you have been missing.  The doggies will be waiting with their tails wagging.  We are so proud of you.  Semper Fi.
