I just got my first phone call from my son who is in BCT Army. He sounds good.  Life here goes on the same.  I felt like I had nothing to tell him that is new.  He knows all the small details from my letters.  He sounded cheerful and marvelled over how much he could eat.  I am very sad that I don't think I will be able to go to his graduation.  It is all the way on the other side of the country and I can't really afford it.  I may not get to see him until December.  The two I have left at home seem very precious to me right now.  I hope I said all the right things to him.
