It’s finals week around here but what makes it really special is that it’s AJ’s last finals week. Three more tests and he’s officially a graduate. With a Bachelors degree in Aviation Administration he’s one step closer to becoming a professional pilot. He’s planning on finishing his instrument rating this summer and then we’ll see what happens after that. It took me a while but I’ve finally learned to be patient when it comes to his career plans and to take future plans with a boulder-sized grain of salt. I’m proud of him nonetheless. This is a big accomplishment and I’m so happy he’s studying what he loves and will have a career that he’s passionate about the rest of his life.
In other news, my mom and my sister are coming this week. They’ll be here for two weeks to help celebrate birthdays and a few graduations. Then my mom will be back off to England again for the last run of their stay there while my sister will head off to a summer job in the Midwest. We’ve been cleaning the house in anticipation of their stay and have already begun yard work outside since the weather has been delightfully warm the last few days.
I’m excited for summer but with it comes a lot of new changes. We’ll be moving again and with AJ finishing school that will begin a whole new round of tests and applications in pursuit of his future plans. I’ll be getting a new boss or two with the new “year” starting the beginning of August and we’ll be taking a few vacations in between. I am always anxious for the changes because it gives me something to look forward to but I know they’ll come and go in the blink of an eye. I’ve realized recently that when we’re young we can’t wait to grow up so time seems to slide past at a nails pace but now that I’m an adult it flies past with barely a glimpse. I guess I better live it to it’s fullest while I still can.
