Katie's Address at Ft. Lee

She's there! We got her safely delivered after a long, but fun drive. I have pictures I'll post of our trip and her graduation. It was a fabulous experience and worth every minute! We got to see Savannah, GA and states I thought we'd never get to go to. It is amazingly beautiful back East.

Anyway, you can now write to her again. She comes home at Christmas from the twentieth through the second. Then she comes home for good, unless deployed, in February. The chances of deployment are pretty slim.

We're still waiting on the ok for care-packages. As soon as Katie gives us the what she can or can't have, we'll let ya know!

So for now here is her address:

Katelynn M. Sorensen
India Company, 262 QM BN PLT 7
Bldg 9300 A Ave
Ft. Lee, Virginia

Letter 26: Graduation is here!

Oct. 29, 2008

Hi Family!

So I have the best news ever!!! Ok so Monday, I took my final PT test right? And I failed by 3 sit-ups or 5 points, technically. Well yesterday, the drill sergeant called some people's names and she said you all are the ones who got a 50% or higher in all 3 events , so you're retaking the PT test tomorrow with Alpha.

So today we woke up, went down there and took our PT test again. And guess how well I did!? Well I did 31 push-ups, 56 sit-ups and ran 17:32!! So in other words...


I get to graduate!!! I'm so freaking happy!!! Like I had to refrain from jumping up and down.

I just had to write and tell you that. :)

Mkay I'm going to sleep.



P.S. Mom when you guys come, can you bring Twix, Snickers, Reese's, Ding Dongs and a Dr. Pepper please?! I'm just dying for some sweets!
