On June 10th, we said good bye to Tyler for the summer.  He left on June 11th for Ft. Benning, GA for training for the National Guard.  What a day for a mother.  I had cried all week because of graduation, but this was a little bit harder to do.  I am saying good bye to my first born.  I am sending him off to an unknown place.  Will be do good.  What will it be like.  I am a mother and I like to know these things before heading into them.  I still to this day can not look at these pictures without crying my eyes out.

We have heard from him 3 times.  He called when he got there.  He called on Father's Day to wish Randy a Happy Father's day and the last time I have heard from him was when he finally got to his housing and he called with the programmed message.  I AM HERE, IT IS HOT, I AM SAFE, YOU WILL BE GETTING A LETTER FROM ME ABOUT THE DO'S AND DON'TS OF LETTER WRITING.  I LOVE YOU MOM.  That is the last I have heard from him.  Hoping for a letter soon.  I have written only once due to the storm situation here.  Hopefully, I can get another one out this week.  I think he will enjoy getting my letters cause I slip him money in there every time.

I do have the message that Lindsay put on FB for me of him saying good bye to his mom.  I listen to it everyday.  Sure do miss my Tman.  Will be glad when Aug. 23rd comes and I see his smiling face again.  Got to go or I will be spelling everything wrong cause I can not see the keyboard for the tears.  This has been one of the hardest post I have ever done.

Like her momma, in tears
Doesn't understand what is going on
Love this one
Randy fighting back tears
Picture says it all
Not pretty when I cry
Having a very hard time
Did not hit her until she dropped him off
