Congrats, Steph! What a cute shot. Is this one of our future fighter pilots? My son went through the same 'phase'. I was so relieved when he 'grew out of it'. Kind of scary, though, now, at 17, he wants Paul and I to sign that form that gives him permission to join the military early. HELP! We told him he could wait until AFTER he graduates from college!

ANyway, really great shot. Well deserved win.

Kerry, what an honor to recieve a congrats from you! Thank you so much!!

JF, I truly appreciate it! Congrats to you again as well!

Piper, this is the one. He is in love with the air force! He has always had a fascination with flying and when he was real little would 'fly' everywhere like a bird. Then he realized about planes and wanted to fly the space shuttle and take me to Jupiter LOL Now, we just took a day trip to March air feild museum where he got special treatment by the workers because he is so cute in his pilot hat and goggles (yes, he wore them LOL)and he followed the pilots in army greens all around the museum. So now he wants to be in the air force LOL

Good luck with your son. It is a scary realization when they are old enough to make their own choices. I have a wase to go yet :O) Thanks!

Steph, when he gets older (a LOT older - Ha) his dad should take him to one of the flight simulator deals. Paul took Nick a few years ago to one in Fort Worth. Everything is real except the jet, of course. But it "feels" real since you're looking at a screen and the 'jet' you sit in moves around like a real one. THey make you go through "basic training" and learn how to do an emergency jump. It's run by former pilots who talk to the 'students' just as they would in the real thing. It's a trip. I have a picture somewhere around here of Nick in the whole getup, hanging from a parachute thing. I'll have to look for it. I'm sure your hubby would love it too. Paul sure did.
