What did you and your soldier do on his very last days home before he left for BCT?
Just stay home or did you go out do something special?

Hugs mama!  I have no idea what BCT is...my husband is Navy, and he was already in when I met him.  Good luck!  I know these ladies here will have some wonderful ideas for you...they are extremely creative:)

We went out to dinner with family & friends and then spent time in our hotel room just the family. 2 days before he left for MEPS we took our daughter to the zoo and then out shopping at the big mall with her just doing stuff as a family.

BCT: basic combat training

And myself and dh were both already in when we met. But for deployments, we just stay home and relax. But this last time we went and got me some new glasses. But that only took an hour...

He was already in when I met him. But we stay home and relax the last few days before he leaves for any length of time. He prefers to bring a memory of our "normal" with him.

The last time DH left (earlier this month), we celebrated ODD's birthday early since he was leaving the day of.  He'll be back the day after YDD's birthday.  It's a good thing these kids aren't old enough to be good with dates.
