We are finally home. We had initially planned to trek around San Antonio for a while, but last evening LittleDood came down with a fever. There has been a virus making its way through our family (thankfully CarKiller got it last week and is almost 100% now) and it caught up with the little guy last night. I got it yesterday. As we were getting ready to leave, I thought I was having horrible allergy problems, but by the time we were on 35S, I knew it was not allergies! Yesterday was miserable! But we have survived. I don’t feel well, but am definitely improving. LittleDood is still running a fever whenever the motrin or tylenol wear off. I think we’ll let it run for a little while and see if it breaks for good.
I am slugging down sipping a wonderful cup of coffee, sitting in 93° heat on the back porch, watching the little one play. He needs to play, sick or not! He was so good while we were down there. That is NOT a place to make a 3 year old happy! And still, even not feeling well, he did wonderfully.
Chief did have the privilege of swearing his son in. I got a few pictures. I couldn’t decide which to upload, so I uploaded all of the swearing in pictures. I have a video I still need to download and I may add that here later.
CarKiller enlisted as an E-3 instead of an E-1 because he passed the “soldier skills” tests, a PT test, and he referred someone to the military. That’s great for him as it will get him to E-4 that much faster and the pay for an E-3 is much better than the pay for E-1. I have to say, everyone at the MEPS in San Antonio was actually very pleasant! When we went to SoldierBoy’s swearing in in Dallas, it was NOT such a pleasant experience.
I might have more to say about all of this later, but for now, I’m going to get back to that coffee!
Enjoy the pictures:
