What a whirlwind few days. Last Thursday headed to meet airport express @ 3am, caught flight to Chicago at 6. Took my pill when I woke we were almost there! Can't say enough about the Ramada in Waukegan, they really cater to the families of the graduates, a couple of fantastic rooms at a super discount, a meet and greet in the bar the first night to give other parents a chance to mingle, and the next morning a free shuttle to the Naval base. Ok, just thinking about it is giving me a lump in my throat so will close this installment for now. Watch for more later.
