His Story is Known... Finally

I chaperoned a field trip yesterday for the 3rd grade. My car was filled, of course, with boys. Bones got to pick what kids would ride with us and he chose his three closest buddies.

I listened to them chatter the whole way there and back. It was non stop motion and sound. Exhausting, actually. ADHD kids tend to find their own, I have found, and then add a kid or two with their own little personality quirks and you start looking for movie cameras as certainly this is being filmed for some movie.

It can’t actually be real.

But it is.

And they spoke about what they wanted to be when they grow up and someone said they wanted to be a cop and Bones said, ‘Yeah, but everyone knows… there is no one tougher than a Navy SEAL.”

I think I *blinked*. Evidently he listens to his Mom.

From Lex I bring you a post concerning a Navy Seal USNA ’68, a father’s love… and a Bronze Star… long overdo.

Go look.

How does that proverb go...hope deferred makes the heart grow sick? Sadly, the military is all too secretive about some things. But, for the family...good on'em, way to persevere.
