Only five more days,
and I see my baby
in his US Navy Dress Blues,
for his graduation from Boot Camp!
The Navy calls it PIR (Pass in Review)
Only 4 guests per recruit (now full fledge sailors)
are allowed on base to see this event.
He is leader of his unit and will be carrying the flag,
for his division.
I am so, so pumped!
I've got my ribbons for all of us to wear
to honor our Sailor.

I also have my embellishments from Lora McIntosh
to decorate our hotel room door.
I have my Challenge Coin
to give our Sailor
after the graduation ceremony.
Thanks to PIR Gifts.
And now, I'm in the process of making
for our hotel door decoration,
I'll post more pics of the door,
all decorated when I'm done.
I'm also decorating it
with a ribbon wreath
that I'm finishing up.
(I just have to run to Hobby Lobby for one more item
before I can complete it. And they are closed
on Sundays...so you know where I'll be tomorrow)
In addition, Old Sarge is hosting
a Meet & Greet for all the Navy families.
He holds this event every week, on Thursday
before each PIR.
I'm putting together a raffle basket
to help defer the cost of all of the food
that Sarge puts out for this Meet & Greet.
More posts on the basket, as well, later.
So, it's back to work getting all of this done.
I haven't crafted in quite awhile,
and am a little rusty.
Check back for more posts about these.
