"It also increases the retirement acct I just started. Hopefully I'll have at least $200,000 when I retire, more if I can keep getting hours like this. But I don't want to exhaust myself doing it."

"That's the plan! Once Erik and Wakana are here, I'll scale back to an extra shift every other week if staffing allows. But we have another resignation pending. That will leave just me and one other person to cover the night shift."

Hi! Do you know what part yet? My son is at camp Foster.  Keep in touch!

Glad to add you. My son likes it there, he says it is beautiful.

Oh my gosh, it's beautiful! You are really talented, and I know your son will love that!

I also know you would love to have letters, but I think you said before he wouldn't write. He must be so focused on doing what is necessary there. My son hasn't sent one in a while and it's hard. I am trying not to run to the mailbox every day! It is hard to hear how much other parents say about their letters, too.  Hang in there - you obviously raised a great man for him to get where he is today.

Willow, I am sure your son will be fine in the water. When you read the article you will see that his confidence is the main thing!  I am hoping that you get a letter soon, too. It's hard waiting...

I'm here. Send me a message.
