He's a Sailor

Berek graduated from U.S. Navy Boot camp on Friday.
 Jon and I went to Great Lakes, IL to watch the ceremony.

He was in Division 167.

 So very proud of him.

 He will be headed off to submarine school in Connecticut soon.

We took him to lunch and spent the rest of the day listening to his stories.

On Saturday we went to Chicago and spent the day 
at the Museum of Science + Industry.

 In addition to many other exhibits, we toured a 
German U-505 submarine that was captured during WWII.

 This boat is much smaller than the modern U.S. subs.

We enjoyed a Chicago-style pizza before Berek had to go back to the base.

What a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!
