One of the main reasons that Justin attempted to avoid deployment was because he started school this fall. This was a huge thing for Justin since he's not a biggest fan of school, and has always kinda put it off. But he finally started attending classes at William Penn University, claiming a Computer Science major. Turns out he actually likes his classes and especially the challenge. He had planned to go year round, in hopes of graduating in only 3 years. I'm so proud of him for going to school! I feel that education is SO important.
But today he is meeting with his school adviser to tell them
that he will have to quit school after this semester.
One a "good" note, this news has encouraged us to not waste time and i can see how Justin is cherishing time with the boys. There have been more moments of spontaneous giggles, more tickling, more sweet moments and more hugs. I could look at it as it's sad that it took this to bring that out... OR i could just be thankful. and soak it up. and i think that's what i'm going to do.
