Well after are hard decision we made on Friday we also had a very exciting emotional weekend for our family.
William are youngest son who is 16 just before Christmas passed selection to join the army. He really worked hard to pass selection as he needed good grades and to be very fit to get a place at the Army Foundation College in Harrogate.
We travelled to England on Saturday night and went into Harrogate to do a few bits of shopping that we could not get in Germany and then made our way to the college.
What a fantastic place.
William will stay and train here as a junior soldier for the next year, until he will go to his 2nd faze of his training which will be with the Royal Electrical mechanical Engineer.
Coming from a Army family he has a insight to Army life which should help him fit in very well.
We spent the afternoon at the college while the staff gave us a small glimpse of what they will be doing over their time in Harrogate.After the seminar they were told they had 2 mins to say there goodbyes and then they were marched off to begin their new exciting life with the army.
We are so proud of him and look forward to his passing in parade in 6 weeks where they do a drill display and receive there cap badges for which part of the army they want to join.
Arriving home the house seems very quiet with the both of them missing,but life goes on and we look forward to seeing William in 6 weeks.
