    Just awesome Admin and another very proud parenting moment to share!

    I always show your posts to my daughter, she hangs off your son's every achievement in her own quest for a flying future.

    She has just won a scholarship to gain her Gliding Pilots licence later in the year (when she turns 15!) and whilst that is not her true love, was another challenge for her to undertake.

    Makes the heart swell.....

    Murray can I make a suggestion. Make sure your son sees this thread.

    I lost my father to a brain tumor 3 months ago. He never ever said he was proud of me.

    The love and affection you have for your son is clear but make sure he knows it. That spoken appreciation will live on in his heart all his life and echo on in the lives of his children
  4. Brag away, Admin! Let the world know how proud you are of your son! **):))
    A big future is ahead of him when the foundation of his career was built with your help. Congratulations to both of you!:rockon:

    thank you for the suggestion sm.**) Shane is very much aware of how proud I am as I don't shut up about his achievements and what they will mean to his future.:)
