Yes, for those of us who are new at this... Military acronyms are a PITA! (Look it up!)

WOT = Week Of Training

4 = 4 LoL!

Yep "our females", Avivah, Monika and Jessica are in their 4th week of BMT which means they're off to Field Training Experience (FTX) also known as WarriorWeek . They left yesterday and will return on Friday around lunchtime.

The week for them will be filled with MREs, M16 training and firing, a Gas Mask/Chamber experience, putting up big tents, lots of testing of their 'memory work', running a challenge [read: obstacle] course and much more.

It's also, just their luck, forecast to be a pretty "volitile" weather-week in San Antonio!

Monday, 4pm: Currently 58F. Showers early, then partly cloudy overnight. Low 49F. Chance of rain 50%.
Tuesday: Sun and a few passing clouds. High 74F. Low 49F.
Wednesday: Sunshine. Highs in the low 80s. Lows in the low 50s.
Thursday: Partly cloudy, thunderstorms likely late in the day. Highs in the mid 80s. Lows in the mid 50s.
Friday: Abundant sunshine. Highs in the low 90s and lows in the upper 50s.

As far as I can figure they're going to be a very grundgy, muddy crew when they return! Can't wait to hear how it went and all the details, but wow, I don't envy them all that sloggin' through the Texas mud OR the clean up duties!

Oh you are getting good here Lea. New pic? I think I'm the oldest blogger around here. I'll have to photoshop out all my wrinkles LOL

Great blog today...I felt like I was actually there and you included so much info. I love it!

I personally think the kids like playing in mud. When David played football they had fun when it was muddy! Can you believe it's WOT4 already?

PITA is also in my need to look up :-)

Oh heck no, Debbie. It took 35.7 BILLION shots to find ONE I found temporarily acceptable!

Besides, I think Hallie's the youngest "Spring Chicken AF mom" around.
