proud Mom

Tonight I had the unique privilege to see my beautiful boy in uniform.

He'd hate it that I'm writing this because he is quiet, reserved and oh so handsome with his gorgeous full head of red hair. He has recently joined our local group of air cadets and is, so far, very positive about the experience. If you had have told me that my wild, wake-boarding, fun loving red head would cut off those locks and be in a GLIDER by October I definitely wouldn't have believed you. If you had have told me that that same summer loving, barefoot son of mine would march in big, shiny black boots and a blue uniform I would have called you crazy!!! But, my infinitely wise children teach me something everyday and today I learned that life is in perfectly perpetual motion. Mitch aka. "Conservative" (as he's known now in the cadet circle) loves to learn, to be a contributing member of his own community, and (best of all, my wish came true) has self esteem to just be march his own path. The smile says it all and tonight as he tried on the whole ensemble we were both grinning ear to ear.
