Default A proud moment.

Today was one of those days that you will remember for years.

A beautiful 82 degree day, a soft breeze, a small crowd at the field and good food on the grill. Nothing extra special about the day until 2-3pm.

My youngest son Michael has been wanting to fly. I like this idea. He took claim to his older brothers Slow Stick. So today he was determined he was going to fly it.

When time came for him to go out and fly. I was told by my oldest son, "dad, I got this". It was such a cool thing to see my oldest son helping my youngest fly for the first time.

Made me proud.

I had 2 daughters. One loved metal detecting with me. No boys sadly. However, several grandchildren but all girls, however one is producing a BOY this time. So we may yet have a flier one day. I hope I am not too old to enjoy it....

That is a great photo and it must have made you feel really special. Thanks for sharing.
