Hi, thanks for the comment and invite! That must have been a little strange thinking I might be her, lol! My son is 24. I'm happy to see someone else in the same Div. I've only see a couple of others in 157. Hope to meet you at grad :)
I read that you haven't made plane reservations yet. Have you ever flown Frontier? We have used them for a few years now and never had a problem. If you go directly to their website they have 3 different pricing "tiers" to choose from. The top tier allows you to change your ticket if needed at no charge.
YEARS ago when Chris was an infant I flew with him and my mother-in-law back to Omaha. He was 2 months old at the time, and I used a front pack to carry him in while in flight. I had also taken his car seat, and after we took off a flight attendant told me that they had many open seats in the back of the plane. I decided to move, I had an entire row to myself and since I had his car seat, he slept in his car seat and I knew he was safe. Granted this was 19 years ago, but I thought I would share that experience with you. ttyl,
That's great news! I did get a letter but it was very short. Chris has a gf that he would rather spend his time writing to, and I understand that. Chris passed his PFA and the 1 1/2 mile run,so now he can get down to really studying. Studying does not come easy to him, but I know he can do it.
Are you planning on attending PIR? How old is your little boy? I remember when Chris was that little...time goes by SO fast.
