This New Journey is different second time around. Way more different then the first time, and I am really over the moon Happy For Him. Yes we will soon have two sons in the Navy.
Yes Zachery will be joining his older brother in the same type of work but at the same time its different, you see because they are brothers they are never allowed to be on the same Ship as each other. Which is a good thing because they are close now but working together would put too much pressure on their brotherly friendship.
Funny enough but I am not scared for either of them – I am not worried about their roles and if they will stay safe. I just know they will both be OK within their careers.
Actually I try not to focus on what they are doing, and just think about how I will see them when ever its possible.
I have lots of questions coming in…..”Don’t you feel scared for what they are going to be doing?” – Nope because I want to focus on the good stuff!!!
“How do you feel with another son in the navy. Are you able to sleep at night?” – Yep because life is full of whatever’s and I know that they are following their own way in life. I am doing fine with another son joining – I am one Proud Momma 🙂
This Time Around ::
I was able to be fully supportive of my second son entry process. This time around I was able to be with him 100% – helping him to buy his suit. Helping him to get to the appointments on time, helping me to be prepared for the Interview Process.
Last time I wasn’t able to support my older son because he is really independent and had already moved out of home – he has always wanted things done his way and we never had to be there because he was too strong minded with what part of his life we were able to play a role in. And that’s not a bad thing – he has followed his dreams his way.
This Time I am more relaxed with the whole process…..I have been able to spend another year with our second son because he is entering the Navy a year older than our first son.
What is really freaky is that they both have entry dates for the same month and the same date, two years after……which is really STRANGE but kinda makes sense for our family.
So Zachery has been given his start date – we still have close to three months before he goes in so now I am going to make sure I spend as much time as possible with him because I know that once he is gone into the Navy his family will be a different family. The navy friendships are way stronger than any normal job and I know that I am going to see less and less of him, just like we do with our older son.
Happy for Him to fly from the nest, happy for him because he is following his dream. Happy because we have spent an extra year with him – he will turn 18 when he is away for basic training so will celebrate with him when he has Christmas Holidays.
Now its time to get our Motorhome ready for travel – David is working on rebuilding the engine so that we can travel more smoothly. And it will soon be time for me to De-Clutter every cupboard….amazing what Junk our boys can collect and add to the little space we have!!!
Time for us to get ready for another official March Out Parade down in Melbourne. Last time I filmed the Formal March Out Parade so I hope to do so again this time.
Funny how our first child has prepared the way for our second child ~ we know what to expect and we are more prepared.
Mind you I am sure that I will be crying a bucket load like last time when we say Goodbye and watch Zachery board the Bus for the Airport. Yet I think this time I will know in my heart that he will be safe.
And I am hoping that he will share more of his journey with us as he heads towards his New Life in the Navy.
Happy For Him.
He is following his heart – what more could a Mother ask for!!
Thanking you for following our Journey.
