I sent my squad leader a text this morning “MOU Today”, then headed into the naval sub base outside of Silverdale. Once there I settled into my usual morning routine (check army and navy email, then surf the web). I then worked on another SkillPort course. At lunchtime I left for the day. I made the 2 hour drive to Sultan and watched both my son and then my daughter play basketball. I had a blast watching them and cheering for them, I know they liked having me there too. I missed out on so much while in the army…now I cherish every moment I have because kids are only young once! It’s worth the drive and not getting home until 2230.
