|We think this Santa is Mrs. Claus in disguise.|
My son called home last night! That made my month. He sounded happy. I expected him to sound pretty good because it takes a lot to deflate his positive attitude but he sounded even better than I had hoped. He is doing really well on his P.T. and trying to break his fastest run each time. He can run the 1.5 miles in 10:30 right now and is shooting for 9 minutes.
He is on laundry crew with three other guys. He said they have to wash clothes every morning and try to wash at night also. He's washing for 57 guys. The good thing about his job is that while the clothes are washing he gets some downtime to read or write letters while he's sitting in the laundry room. I hope he will be able to study now that classes have started.
He's going to church and they gave him a Bible which he is reading. My husband told him to go to church whether he wanted to or not because at least he'd get a break from the TI's and be able to relax.
We are counting down the days until we can go see him graduate in January.
My brother has been in the Air Force for a long time and he was surprised to see that his nephew got to visit Santa in Basic Training. I'm just thankful that they make photos of the guys and girls available and that they get to call home once a week when they've been good.
