Shipping Out

Kid A is off taking his final PT test before Basic, trying to keep himself out of the “Remedial PE” category.  He’s good on the push-ups and sit-ups, but we went out training together Wednesday, and he’s still struggling on the run.  He’s got to run two miles in 16 minutes, on a hilly bike path, with some freezing half-snow rain stuff coming down.  I’m half a minute slower than that time, and he couldn’t even keep up with me.  We’ll see.


Today is his birthday.  Kid B’s going to bake a cake.  He ships out Tuesday.  He thinks I can come along to Milwaukee on the bus to watch him swear in, and you can bet I’m going to go.  I’m only a little less excited then he is, and a little more worried.
