We were not only able to celebrate my son's swearing into the Navy, but also 'officially' celebrated his graduation. That had been postponed for several reasons- including the fact that we found him a job 3 1/2 hours away right after the order was placed for the diploma.(The job was with a family member in Georgia that we knew would teach him many skills and watch over him.:)

I took 48 hot dogs and buns and a #10 can of chili. (This lasted both nights that we stayed.) For the other meals, before I left, I cooked a turkey, green bean casserole, and a sweet potato casserole. All I had to do was reheat! I left the leftovers for him and his friends. I cooked a spiral ham while I was there and cut it up for them to reheat for sandwiches later this week. Amazing how happy meat makes a bunch of guys!
We had a wonderful visit- we're still sore from all of the laughing!
