Major Change

Not for me, the major change is for son #2. He is presently finishing his sophomore year at Northeastern University, in Boston, majoring in Communications. About 2 months ago he called us to tell us that even though he loves the school, and he loves Boston, he decided that he wants to transfer. He wants to be a pilot.

This wasn't totally out of left field. He has always had an interest in aviation, and when he was considering colleges, he thought about the aviation option. I think he lacked the self-confidence to really say, "this is what I want to do with my life," but now has some regret about that decision. So he has decided to follow his dream! It's actually very exciting to see him make this huge decision and then do all the work to try to make it happen.

He has been accepted to 3 schools and it looks like we are going to have to make a trip in the next week or two to visit 2 of them-- Utah State and the University of North Dakota. It looks like it really is going to happen. I am very happy!
