    I just got off the phone with my youngest son........who has been at the local Job Corp for about 6 months..getting his life together.... I had pulled him out of high school after he showed signs of going the wrong way......he has struggled for a year , making some bad decisions, luckily none led to any real big trouble.......he has older brother who is strugglin with drugs [​IMG] and was headed the same way........ THEN he turned himself around [​IMG] ......slap slap and went into job corp........has now been certified to be a welder and got his High School Diploma.not GED, he has worked so hard, all after a decision to make HIS life what he wanted it to be instead of following others paths....... [​IMG] I am so happy. [​IMG]........ a sad note to all of this though, for me is.......he signed up for the Army and leaves next week for basic........this is my baby ! [​IMG] so scarey for me....but so so so proud I am this morning......gonna throw him a big ole "good for you" party this weekend. Here is Kenneth with his nephew Mister Scott ............ [​IMG]
