Lots of new babies our there these days, and young families. I'm so happy with my kids right now, I just wanted to share what you all have to look forward to, God willing and with the right investment in time, tears and all that. This is NOT to brag, just a proud papa. Good news, my daughter will graduate and become a chiropractor this month. She's pretty smart. Bad news, she and we have not gotten along for years and we don't talk so much. Maybe this will get better but not soon. She's doing so well and happy in her life so I'll call that a win. I just kicked my oldest son out of the house to help him get started with his life. With our help he decided to buy a house and we are awaiting closing as we speak. He increased his hours, and got a second job to afford it. He has two roommates lined up (both girls?????), so he'll pay just about nothing to live there. And he's happy and excited to move out - wahoo!!! My second son is second string on football. He scored his second ever touchdown last game. He and 50 of his closest friends, teammates and coaches had pasta dinner at my house last night. I heard yes sir, no sir, yes ma'am, no ma'am too many times to count. He's a great kid and wants to be an architect. He'll be doing local college next year or two then off to arch school, unless he changes his mind. My youngest is the smartest person I know. He gets p****** when he scores less than 98% on anything he does. He came down last night to share the results of an ASVAB test they gave his class at school and he scored like, too high. He then asked if mom and I would be upset if he chose to go into the service, and at this time the Marines is his first choice. I could barely hold back my tears. We told him it was his choice and that we'd be honored to call him a Marine or any other service person. He then sat down at the table (you gotta know him - he NEVER sits down at the table) and talked to us for about and hour. An hour!! - about what he was thinking and why. I wondered who stole my kid and put this kid in his place???? This should have gone in the "what are you thankful for" thread I guess. But, this is what I'm thankful for.
