Parents Weekend/ Acceptance Day

I am now officially in the Navy. The Navy Reserve that is. I had an AWESOME weekend, it was Parents Weekend/Acceptance Day up here at the Academy, which marks a major mile stone for us "plebes" or freshman. Some new privelages: we can talk in the Cafeteria, sit fully in our chairs instead of just six inches, and a few other important things. We're slowly but surely working our way back to being human again. One of the biggest things is that we now are able to get liberty or leave the campus. My mom, grandma, and me went in to the Big Apple, which was absolutely ridiculously cool. Me and my mom dragged poor grandma everywhere in NYC, from Times Square, Empire State Building, Central Park, Statue of Liberty, to Penn Station. We took a crash course through the city with the one day that we had to spend together. The night before Tropical Storm Hanna came through our area, so that kind of put a damper on things, literally.

All is well up at the academy and a could not have a better weekend. Seeing my mom and grandma up here was so great. My mom pinned my eagle on my chest, signifying that I am a member in the US Naval Reserve. It was a special moment. I hope everyone is doing good and all is well back home. Hope you like the pictures
