Taking the oath of office:
The children behaving so well and witnessing their dad step into a new role as an officer in the United States Navy:
Anchors aweigh! Open sea ahead!
Next dock: Rob will be leaving in September for Officer Development School and then Chaplaincy Training. That's only two months away!
A Seth story for ya'll: the final paperwork and swearing-in took about 45 minutes, and the above picture of the children behaving like angels lasted all of 10 minutes (which is still pretty good), but it didn't take long for Seth to turn his engines to full throttle. As we were leaving, I sighed with relief that the recruiter's office was still intact. I said good-bye and thank-you and turned my attention back to my children, who suddenly numbered only three. Then Lily piped up, "Mommy, Sethie has a revolver." (I didn't even know she knew that word.) And sure enough Seth had slipped into a neighboring office and was playing with an antique revolver--was it real? I couldn't tell--that was sitting on someone's bookshelf.
Can anyone please tell me why I have so many gray hairs????
