I will say that he has a strong faith and seeks guidance for his decisions. I can't argue with God. He feels that this is the path he is supposed to take. He originally wanted to fly for the Navy but due to medical reasons he was not selected to do so. In the four years that he has been at the academy he has been very impressed by the ethics of the Marines. He also has found that he likes to be a leader. So my aeorspace engineer is hoping to lead a group of Marines on the ground... in harms way. So I am proud of him and scared to death for him! I am thankful that he is a prayerful young man and I know that God has a plan for him... but the next five years will not be easy for mama! Graduation week will not be easy for mama either... there will be lots of tears from this girl!
Taylor is the midshipman in the front. He was the Company Commander last semester. We all need to proud of these young men and women because they are amazing! We have had several midshipmen at our home for holidays and weekends because we live close to the academy. They have all been so polite, so interesting to talk to and just plain nice kids! They all work very hard at everything they do.
So I am blessed to have all three of my children graduate from college! The end of the beginning for me too!
