Down to two weeks

Postby RobbyW » Wed Apr 17, 2019 12:49 pm

In two weeks my oldest is moving off. He is going back home to N.E. Arkansas to start his career as a crop duster. He loves to fly and he has landed his dream job. I am extremely proud of him, but also worried. I just hope I have helped get him prepared to be an adult.

Here is a video he made a few weeks ago when he went up with another pilot. I have never seen him more excited and the guy was impressed he didn’t have to use the puke bag they gave him.

I feel your pain. It was a year ago this week when my youngest moved to Murfreesboro. He will be fine, just know you raised him right and trust that he knows what he's doing (even if they don't always know)

Congrats to him. Ag flying is a tough gig to break into.

Everyone should give Jesus a try once. If you don't like it Satan will always take you back.

I have met him and he seems to be a good boy with a solid head on his shoulders. I believe you raised him right.

That is awesome man, congrats to both of you!

I'm sure he will do fine.
Look at it this way, you know you raised him right because he has a JOB ! LOL that is more and more rare these days.

That would be an awesome way to make a living too!!!
