A long and eventful summer

I've been sooooo busy this summer. I was working 2 part-time jobs, both resulting in long hours on my feet and one requiring lots of scooping. Yes, I was back at the ice cream shop this summer. Needless to say, there has been little gardening, no knitting and lots of time spent trying to catch up on housework. Hence, nothing to blog about.
However the biggest news of the summer is ... my son is now an Airman First Class. We travelled down to his graduation from basic training this month. We couldn't be more proud. Not only did he make it, but he graduated as an honor graduate. He was in the top 10% of his class of over 600 trainees. Now he is in tech school to become a loadmaster. He won't be home for months yet but we are e-mailing, calling and skyping on a somewhat regular basis. Those were all things forbidden during the 8.5 weeks of basic training. I never knew I could miss someone as much as I missed my son this summer.
Anyway, here he is:
My son! My Airman! My Hero!
