    Almost a week since he left

    for boot camp, it feels like it's been months since I've talked to him. I miss him so much, and I'm counting down the days until his graduation. I am so proud of him and I love him so much!

    He texted me this morning asking how I was

    feeling, all worried and upset because he fell asleep last night. That man is the cutest. I told him not to worry about falling asleep, because he needed it. He's so sweet!
