Didn't really have anything to throw out there for discussion tonight.

Our son left for sea cadet camp yesterday. We saw him off at the airport with a couple hundred other kids from Newfoundland attending either sea, air or army cadet camps on the mainland. Sean is spending nearly 2 weeks at what used to be the Naval training center at Cornwallis in Nova Scotia. He announced to us at age 12 he wanted to join the sea cadets as he figures that he'll be in the navy when he gets out of school. Kids are so advanced to day...I was in my last few months of high school before I decided on a direction for myself (and it turned out I was wrong, at that!)


I thought I'd stick up a photo of him in his hat as he looks so darn cute in uniform (oops, did I say that?) What I meant is he looks rugged and manly in his uniform...Grrr!

Yes, rugged and manly ; )

Ahhhh, life on the sea. Good for him, very ambitious and a touch romantic. Gotta love the hats too.

Of course...rugged and manly. Kids do seem to be either very serious these days, or quite misguided. Glad your son seems to be of the former.

How cute! I mean manly. :)

I didn't really know what I wanted to do in life even when I was in college, except I knew I wanted to work as little as possible. So far I've been disappointed.

He's a good kid. I'm just glad that he's showing an interest in something other than TV, computer, or video games. Hopefully the enthusiasm with cadets will last until he's 18 and out of school and can decide if it's really his chosen path.
