Matthew is now in his "room" - a small room about 10x12 that he does not have to share. He got his locker - finally and all the things that he has been without for the past month or so. He does not have internet in his room yet and goes to the computer room to "talk" - instant message. He has a web cam and I have been able to see him several times as we chat on instant messaging. He says that I "talk" too fast. He works hard and has been very busy. His off time is watching movies, playing games, and talking with Kayci, Richard, and of course, his Mom - ME!
He will be working today, Thanksgiving, but have tomorrow, his birthday, off. I am not sure what he will be doing but relaxing and eating pumpkin pie will be on the list.
He has not been able to send pictures or post because of the internet connection that he has. He tells me that he is SAFE and WELL. You cannot ask for more than that.
We have much to be grateful for - especially for the service men and women that are fighting to protect our freedoms here in the USA.
