We went to church on this morning and then spent the afternoon together as a family. He requested Cafe Rio pulled pork for his last homecooked meal for a while. We had a great day. Of course they all harassed me for wanting so many pictures!!! But really family, who knows when you'll all be home again at the same time for 5 minutes!! We checked him into the Radisson out by the airport at 4:00 and then went out to dinner. Lance was so antsy the entire time! He had briefing at 7:00 (I guess I should start using Army time!) but didn't want to be late at all. I think we had him back by 6:00. He was nervous...he was excited! We just gave him hugs in the parking lot. The kids all had bets on when mom would "lose it". Geeze...thanks guys! Just so they know...I kept my sunglasses on for a reason and tried really hard to keep it together. I did pretty good if I do say so myself. I didn't even cry until the next morning. But they don't know that...so shhhhh!
Lance had MEPS on Monday all day. His flight didn't leave until 8:00 Tuesday morning. He called from the airport to say goodbye and let me know things were good. Then he texted when he got to Atlanta and said he would call when they got on the bus for their 2 hour ride to Ft. Benning. That was the last we heard. He's in the Army now! Take care of him Uncle Sam!
