    Less than a year ago he left for Army Basic Training,, I went to that graduation,, Now tonight my baby, Steven, graduated from High School. They let him wear his uniform under his graduation gown even though last year a school in the area made a big stink about a student who wanted to wear his uniform. I'm happy they let Steven wear his. June 30th he leaves for Ft. Leonard Wood in MO. I doubt I'll be able to make that graduation but everything goes as planned the next graduation after that will be from New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, NM. I am so proud of my son!

    He still hasn't gotten his PFC stripes even though he was promoted over a month ago!

    How wonderful Kate!

    He just keeps maturing doesn't he?!

    He has gotten a great start from a great mom.

    Hooray for Steven! [​IMG] Good job, Kate!

    So, he is coming to my neck of the woods, eh? (Well, it is 150 miles east of me.) 2 of my sons have been through there also. Great start for his adult life!
