As TQSWizard I spend a great deal of time out of the lime light on this site.  I much prefer to be in the background working on the details.  My year's as a wedding coordinator allowed me to enjoy the view from the back.  My favorite time was watching the groom as he sees his bride for the first time coming down the aisle.  Everyone is usually focused on the bride, so the groom's true emotions just wash over his face.  It would bring me to tears every time. 

This last week, I was "the groom" as our oldest son Stuart was enlisted in the Army by his father (a retired Air Force Officer).  He will be working in Explosives Ordinance.  This is the son who for years sang in a rock band, had long hair, tattoos and gauged his ears.  We never thought he would make this career choice.

And this morning we received a call that our youngest son Austin has received a Navy Scholarship. He also told us he wanted nothing to do with the military.  His plans are to work become a Navy SEAL.

So tonight we will be going out to dinner to our favorite restaurant to celebrate two very big occasions in our family.  It has certainly been an exciting and emotional week for our entire family. I guess this mean that I will now have to root for three services instead of just one.  What am I going to do when Navy plays Army?
