Our Nathan is nearing the end of his Marine Corp boot camp and will be completing The Crucible this weekend. (beginning Friday morning approximately 2am)
When I first read the word Crucible, I was thinking, is he being tried as a witch? Nope, Suzanne, NOT THAT CRUCIBLE.
Marching for 48 miles sounds like a blast. They have limited food intake, very little sleep AND are being challenged all the while. This ain’t for sissies.
Nathan is both mentally and physically strong and we know he will do well, but we’d love for him to do it well without sustaining any injuries that could cause him to be delayed in his progress.
We will not see his face until August. I can’t wait until this is over and he goes back to being just a regular old Popo; you know, no risk there either!
Anyhoo. I’m thanking you in advance for your good thoughts. Being a Marine (reserve) will fulfill one dream of his. His other being my Son in law will happen in October. 😉
I will see Lolo Friday, because she also has a ‘big thing’ happening. She’s hanging in there all things considered.
I’ll share next week; God willing and the creek don’t rise.
