In like Flynn ...

One thing I haven't gotten around to blogging is that our oldest son has been accepted into the aviation department at the University of North Dakota at Grand Forks. Sounds like the North Pole, but if you are interested in a career in aviation, UND is the place to go. (imagine a fleet of 80 the helicopters. And these are sharp new machines--no old clunkers.)

What's really delicious is that UND allows early applications, and Rob was accepted in July, at the end of his Junior year of high school. So he is looking forward to this coming Senior year because <evil grin> all his classmates will be sweating the college-admissions process, and the SAT test, and college visits...while he will be sitting back and smiling as teachers and counselors lash the sluggards into action. </evil grin>
